Guide: Z-Push on HTTPS (exchange push support)


I wanted push mail on my iPhone from my Virtualmin setup, and found Z-push to get the job done. This is a small guide on setting it up. At least it works for me on a debian box.

I've installed Z-Push (d-push on debian) using:

apt-get install d-push

Edit: /etc/d-push/config.php and modify these lines

// connecting to default port (143)
define('IMAP_PORT', 993);
// best cross-platform compatibility (see for options)
define('IMAP_OPTIONS', '/ssl/novalidate-cert');

I have added this in my apache2.conf:

<Directory /usr/share/d-push>
    php_flag magic_quotes_gpc off
    php_flag register_globals off
    php_flag magic_quotes_runtime off
    php_flag short_open_tag on
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
Alias /Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync /usr/share/d-push/index.php

I'm using mod_php for the domain as this is required by Z-Push.

In virtualmin I copied the SSL certificate to dovecot. In Dovecot networking and mail protocol options (under Webmin servers) I've set Accept SSL connections to Yes.

That's it... now I have push on my phone using exchange mail :-)

Remember to restart postfix

service postfix restart
