The dovecot version provided by CentOS 6 simply does not have that feature implemented. The wiki.dovecot.org documentation reflects the current stable upstream status of things.

You may use the dovecot22 package provided by the ghettoforge plus repository, providing dovecot release 2.2.15.

  • My suggestion would be to contact the ghettoforge people as this is no longer really a CentOS issue. Certainly this list can be used if they are on it.

    But instead of using a repo I have personally never heard of, I would instead look at the documentation for version of dovecot that is in CentOS 6.

    The purpose of running CentOS is to have enterprise level server software .. if you instead want latest and greatest server software, I
    would recommend that you just run the latest Fedora Server.

  • yum shell remove dovecot install dovecot22
    run

    I should warn you that there are subtle changes to dovecot config between 2.0 and 2.2 that may give you issues when switching. You will likely have to tweak a few config options to get it to work the way you want.

    If you’re using MailDir storage then you can simply move the messages yourself, it’s as easy as using the mv command to move them from one directory to another and you won’t need the doveadm move command.

    If you have any more questions feel free to ask them here or in
    #ghettoforge on FreeNode IRC.
