POPFile is an automatic mail classification tool. Once properly set up and trained, it will scan all email as it arrives and classify it based on your training. You can give it a simple job, like separating out junk e-mail, or a complicated one-like filing mail into a dozen folders. Think of it as a personal assistant for your inbox. For more information see http://popfile.sourceforge.net/.

Installation and Uninstall

For installation just hit the following command

yum install smeserver-popfile --enablerepo=smecontribs

For uninstall just hit the following command

yum remove smeserver-popfile

You can ignore the yum-comments signal event post-upgrade and signal-event reboot.


You can now retrieve emails via POPFile, you just need to set the following configuration to your favorite email client:

POP3 Server: your-sme-server-name
Login      : your-sme-server-name:your-sme-login
POP3 Port  : 1100

To add buckets or simply configure POPfile, start your favorite browser at http://your-sme-server-name:7676.

Additional information

Known issues

Update fails and break popfile

to update from version prior to smeserver-popfile-0.21.2-2.el5.sme, you need first to remove old package (rpm -e smeserver-popfile or yum remove smeserver-popfile) then install more recent package as described in this page. If you read this when this is too late, you can still remove present package with yum and re install it with yum.

The problem comes from older package post uninstall script that delete popfile init script and configuration db entry, impossible to fix as it is already installed.
