IMAP subsystem properties

The following properties can be configured for the IMAP subsystem.

Enabling the IMAP protocol

The following properties control the IMAP subsystem:
imap.server.enabled=true
Enables or disables the IMAP subsystem.
imap.server.port=143
IMAP has a reserved port number of 143. You can change it using this property.
imap.server.host=<your host name>
Replace this value with the IP address (or corresponding DNS name) of your external IP interface.
Configure the following properties of the sysAdmin subsystem:
alfresco.protocol=http
The protocol component of the alfresco web application URL, for example, http.
alfresco.host=$ {localname}
The host name of the Alfresco URL, which is externally resolved. Use ${localname} for the locally-configured host name.
alfresco.port=8080
The port number of the Alfresco URL, which is externally resolved. For example, 8080
alfresco.context=alfresco
The context path component of the Alfresco URL. Typically this is alfresco.
To configure the IMAP Home space, which is used to store user mailboxes in ARCHIVE mode, in particular the user's INBOX, use the following properties:
imap.config.home.store=${spaces.store}
Specifies the default location for the IMAP mount point. For example, ${spaces.store}.
imap.config.home.rootPath=/${spaces.company_home.childname}
Specifies the default location for the IMAP mount point. For example, /${spaces.company_home.childname}.
This property may also be configured using an XPath query syntax.
imap.config.home.rootPath=/app:company_home
To add your own folder to this path, add the name of your folder path using the data model names. For example:
/app:company_home/cm:Houses
If your folder has a space in the name, include _x0020_ where the space should be. For example:
/app:company_home/cm:Home_x0020_Town
Stop and start the IMAP subsystem for the changes to take effect.
imap.config.home.folderPath=cm:Imap Home
Specifies the QName of the default location for the IMAP mount point. For example, cm:Imap Home.

Enabling IMAPS

IMAPS is a secure IMAP that is encrypted using SSL. IMAPS is assigned to port number 993 by default. When you have enabled the IMAP subsystem, you must configure the default Java keystore, and then enable IMAPS.

To configure the default Java keystore, use the following properties:
javax.net.ssl.keyStore=mySrvKeystore
Specifies the keystore to be used
javax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword=123456
Specifies the keystore password
To enable IMAPS, use the following properties:
imap.server.imaps.enabled=true
Specifies that IMAPS is enabled
imap.server.imaps.port=993
Specifies the IMAPS port number

Extracting attachments

An IMAP message can contain a message and a set of attachments, and the IMAP server can split the attachments into separate content nodes. Use this property with caution if you have a large repository. See Troubleshooting IMAP for more information.
imap.server.attachments.extraction.enabled=true
Defines whether or not attachments are extracted.
