    So im a root admin and own quite a few servers. Since updating to the new Cpanel ive noticed only 2 choices to choose a mailserver :

    Dovecot
    Disabled

    There is no longer an option to use courier mail.

    I opened a ticket regarding this and was told i can change the mailserver easily.

    the response i got was :

    But it doesnt show Courier anymore, Is this an error or am i missing something?

    From the cPanel blog:
    What’s Next for cPanel & WHM? | cPanel Blog

    From Courier to Dovecot
    Because we believe that our customers deserve better, we’ve deprecated the Courier Mail Transport Agent in cPanel & WHM 11.52, and we’ll remove it completely with the release of version 54.

    Dovecot uses less memory and offers better system performance, common requests among our users. If you haven’t already migrated to Dovecot, we’ll migrate you automatically during the upgrade to cPanel & WHM 54.

    What exactly are you doing that Dovecot cannot do?

    Exactly this. Dovecot isn't reliable and crashes my server way too often for it to be usable. Courier was perfect, didn't have a single problem with it.

    Can Dovecot be tweaked so that it works as reliable as Courier? Probably. But I have no idea how. If it isn't broken why fix it.
    But now I have to figure it out on my new server or I'm out of business. So thanks for that.

    I'm not really an expert here but why exactly couldn't you keep supporting Courier? It doesn't seem like something that would be that hard to support or for a matter of fact like something that even gets updated that often. You might as well remove the "Mailserver Selection" now since it's not really a selection if there's only 1 option, right?

    Thanks for nothing. /rant

    Hello :)

    We're happy to help you troubleshoot the issue to determine why Dovecot is failing. Have you opened any previous forum threads or support tickets to address the issue?

    Thank you.
