Solution for dovecot error: /path/ is no longer mounted. If this is intentional, remove it with doveadm mount

Monday, September 2, 2013 posted by admin

Dovecot is watching the whole server filesystem for modifications and removed or added sub filesystems. If you get errors similar to this one on your server:

Aug 30 09:10:23 server1 dovecot: master: Warning: /var/www/clients/client1/web1/log is no longer mounted. If this is intentional, remove it with doveadm mount

 (the directory path may vary), then you can fix it by excluding the path from being watched by dovecot. In my case, dovecot shall not watch my website directories as they do not contain any mailboxes

Run the following command on the shell as root user:

doveadm mount add ‘/var/www/*’ ignore

To exclude all files and folders in /var/www from deovecot monitoring.
