I got a problem with usernames, either I understand this incorrect, or there is something wrong in Mercury 4.91.
............ According to the Help:
Username The name the user will give to identify himself to Pegasus Mail or Mercury. By default, this is also the user's address. Usernames cannot contain spaces and must be less than 50 characters in length. Usernames should contain only the letters A…Z, the digits 0…9 and the special characters '.' (period) and '_' (underscore). ............
I am trying to create a username with a period like this
and Mercury is not accepting this, as by clicking the Add button nothing happens. Using instead an underscore like
this is accepted. Using just a name, is ok too.
Problem is, I have to setup a new mail system(Mercury) and have to keep the old email addresses.
Listing wildcard domains is not a problem *@mydomain.com It is not mentioned in the help, so my question to make sure: is it possible to have comment lines # to kind of group domains for easier overview? I have quite a listing.
(# business listings @firstdomain.com @seconddomain.com
Assuming that I am missing, or have wrong settings in some config settings in Roundcube. Looking through the forum posts, my particular problem did not come up. Maybe someone could point me in the right direction.
BTW, Squirrelmail is working fine, but wanted to offer my users something different.
I migrate from version 4.80 on March 19. (Windows Server 2012 R2). No problems occurred during and after the migration. For one week I get the following error message in the System log : The Mercury32 service terminated unexpectedy. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 60000 milliseconds: Restart the service. The Mercury32 service is restarted either directly by the system or by the Zabbix monitoring system. The problem is that each time Mercury32 is restarted, a new instance of the clamd.exe process is created and each instance takes 1 Gb of memory. The only information I can find in the log is the Windows Event ID (7031). Does somebody know where I can find some more information to track the problem ?. Many thanks for your help
Hi Rolf, What are the state of affairs regarding Mercury v5? All in time?
At the moment I have to create lots of new user accounts which will be accessed by Roundcube via IMAP. ... and what's annoying me again and again is the limitation to 8 digits for a local user name. Hopefully you got this on your list.
Within Pmail you can create additional subfolders for existing folders of a mailbox. And once these "folders in folders" have been created in Pmail, they are also visible and usable without problems via IMAP in Thunderbird when you connect to this mailbox. But unfortunately the direct creation of these subfolders (folders in folders) in Thunderbird is not possible, although in Thunderbird settings "IMAP Server supports Folders in Folders" is checked.
Has anybody a hint in this regard? Does Mercury 4.91 better supports "folder in folder"?
Hello - we've been using Mercury for some decades now & find it an excellent server - every day's a school day. I was wondering if anyone out there used an email security package with Mercury - some crap will always get through but I'd like to be as tight as poss without losing too much performance. We use the pop3 client to download from 2 wildcard accounts & distribute to users via imap [Tbird Outlook roundcube etc] or using integrated Pegasus. Any ideas appreciated - looking out in the wild it seems everyone's trying to push to Google or Microsoft....which I don't want to do. Cheers G
we have every now and than problems with POP3 fetch. The Mercury POP3 client prints out: "TCP/IP communication error Network error: delivering anyway" and gets no other mails after the (mostly spam, often with attachment) mail. We have to delete the mail via WebMail Client and then Mercury gets back to work.
Is there anything we can do? Is there anything known?
Is anyone else seeing this? New licensed installation of Mercury installed on Windows Serer 2016, Mercury/32 version: Mercury/32, v4.91.349, 23 Sep 2022
I have set the service set to restart, which it does, but users report disconnections. No other Windows services are reporting this problem.
Any ideas what to do about it?

I installed the 4.91 upgrade and it looks good. Created a self-signed certificate and that now works.
Everything on the mail server is working properly except it won't accept incoming smtp connections from gmail. It looks like an SSL issue, so I created a certificate request (which also works now, thank you) and purchased a certificate. The Mercury documentation does not quite line up with the certificate provided, and I am having trouble following the instructions. I think some sort of conversion or modification of the certificate may be required in some cases. Also, it is not clear if the old self-signed certificate can remain in place or needs to be revoked or deleted or what.
Could we get some clarity on exactly what the purchased certificate needs to look like, what type, where it should be installed, and any other special instruction?
I hate doing anything with certificates, they always seem to be trouble.
probably a fringe use case, but I'm trying to set up Mercury for my personal local (on the same machine only) IMAP use. It is not supposed to retrieve or send any mail from or to or in any other way talk to the outside world at all.
The absolutely only task is to provide an IMAP server that can be accessed by an email client on the same machine to move messages to the IMAP folders for archival purposes. ATM this only includes email from an external Exchange account. I might include other accounts in the future, but that is not a subject for now.
I installed the MercuryI, W and X modules. No idea whether W and X are of any use in my case, but those were the only additional 2 modules I could not rule out immediately. Since I don't own a domain or any static (or DYNDNS) IP address, I tried to set the domain in the initial configuration to 127.0.0.1 (for lack of a better idea), but now I'm at a loss and don't know how to proceed any further. I could not find any instructions regarding my use case in the manual or in the FAQ of this forum.
I'm using the Windows 10 stock mail application. I don't want to change that, for the app's seamless Exchange integration. Unfortunately, I also don't know how to configure an email client to use an IMAP server running on the same machine.
Sorry if this topic has already been covered. I can't see any 'search' feature on the forum, so I might have missed it.
I'm wondering if anyone has any information regarding setting up Mercury for cellphones. I have a licensed copy, installed and working with Outlook clients on the LAN, but I don't seem to be able to get reliable (relatively secure) email send/receive with iPhone and Android cellphones.
I have a self-signed certificate installed and I think I have the correct ports open on the firewall. I prefer IMAP but if necessary then POP is an option.
Anyone know what the settings in Mercury should be and what firewall ports need to be open/forwarded?
Hi. New standalone server on my PC. Some parts working. But right now my question is about creating the SSL certificate. I followed the manual. Popup window is 'Certificate Creation Error' stating 'The system cannot find the file specified'. I even tried a fakeout by creating a file with the same name i.e.'a.pem'. Help.
