Using External Email Addresses with Kolab

 

By default, Kolab does not allow you do send mails from external email addresses that are not hosted by Kolab itself. However, it is quite easy to change this.

In /etc/kolab/kolab.conf find the section [kolab_smtp_access_policy] and add mailalternateaddress to the address_search_attrs. Now you just have to enter all external addresses a user should be able to use to the External Addresses field in the Kolab Web Admin.

Integrating setup-kolab with Debian Packaging

 

My recent diversion via pykolab may appear to have rather little to do with the matter of improving the Debian packaging situation for Kolab, but after initial tidying exercises with the pykolab code, I started to consider how the setup-kolab program should behave in the context of Debian packaging operations: what it should do when a package is installed, if anything, and whether it can rely on an

Adventures in Kolab Packaging and pykolab

 

After my previous efforts at building Kolab packages using more traditional Debian methods, my attention then turned to the nature of the software itself, particularly since the Debian Kolab packages (as currently available from the Kolab project’s own repository) do not configure the software so that it is immediately usable: that job is assigned to a program called

Packaging Kolab for Debian using pbuilder

 

My recent excursion into Debian packaging with Kolab has involved a tour of lots of different tools and services, but it started out with a brief attempt to build the existing packages with pbuilder: a tool that has become fairly familiar to me in the process of experimenting with Debian packages and even

Contributing to Kolab documentation via github/sphinx

 

The new Kolab 3.1 documentation is written in reStructuredText, using a tool called Sqhinx which was originally created for the Python documentation.
It is much easier to edit than the Publican notation used before for the Kolab 3.0 documentation.

The website for Sqhinx is here: http://sphinx-doc.org/

Some useful links for getting started with writing documentation with Sqhinx:

Build OBS packages locally for CentOS

 

Sometimes it is just quicker to test the building of a CentOS package locally, than to wait for the OBS server to build it.
You also get a chance to search the BUILD directory for files that you might be missing.

I have written how to do this for Debian in an earlier post (see near the bottom): http://www.pokorra.de/2013/10/howto-improve-debian-packages-using-obs/

Using roundcube for mailto: links

 

It’s quite annoying when you click somebody’s name or email on a
web page and that Firefox cannot figure out how to rely on your
system preferences to send an email.

For instance, my system is set up so that when I click on an email
address or mailto: link anywhere, gnome-terminal opens up with
mutt ready to send an email. For some reason, Firefox tries to
figure out all by itself which program I should use.
