Solr image for dovecot
Full Description

Docker image of a running solr instance for dovecot

This repo contains a running instance of solr optimized for dovecot.

Build architecture

The images are automatically build at the docker hub:

Tested with

  • dovecot 2.2.9 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
  • dovecot 2.2.22 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

First steps

Before you start please note the two main problems with this docker image:

  1. This image contains a solr instance which is not compatible to all versions of dovecot by default; up to date versions should work out of the box
  2. This image does not support any authentication or encryption

Installation of solr

Simply execute

docker run -d -p -t lmmdock/dovecot-solr:latest

on your server running dovecot

Afterwards you can access the solr admin panel at

Hooking up dovecot

Afterwards you have to configure the solr usage in dovecot like described at

Please note that the url schema has changed a bit; you probably should use this url: http://localhost:8983/solr/dovecot/

Dovecot 2.2.9

With dovecot version 2.2.9 there is a problem with dovecot's header setting here:

I solved the problem by removing the line completly.

More information:

Dovecot 2.2.22

Working out of the box.
