    After setting up email filter and custom rules, the .filter file is not created in the vmail directory, but it works if I manually create the .filter file. I'm using Centos 6.5 with ISPCONFIG 3

    ISPConfig does not use a file named .filter. On Dovecot servers, the file is called .sieve and it is in the mail root /var/vmail/domain.tld/user/.sieve

    According to ISPCONFIG 3 manual, the email use either Courier/maildrop or Dovecot/sieve for mail filter, I'm using courier/maildrop which I setup using falko tutorial. maildrop use the .filter file that is created by ISPCONFIG according to this thread . Unfortunately the .filter file is not being created on my ISPCONFIG setup

    The file for courier is named .mailfilter and not .filter. ISPConfig creates the following file when you add a filter in the interface:


    A file that starts with a dot is a hidden file, it is not shwon when you use the "ls" command, to see it, use:

    ls -la

    in the directory where the file is created. Please replace [DOMAIN] and [USER] in the command below with the details of your accont and then post the output of that command:

    ls -la /var/vmail/mailfilters/[DOMAIN]/[USER]/
