Would you mind sharing the detailed configuration? so that i can reproduce it and integrate it in iRedMail first, then iRedAdmin-Pro.

btw, are you sure the IP address get updated for each login? I failed to achieve this, because Dovecot updates only the last login TIME and ignore the last login IP address. I doubt you get this fixed. smile

Hi,

Following are the details

Dovecot config as below

}

dict {
    # Add this line. For FreeBSD, please replace the path by
    # /usr/local/etc/dovecot/dovecot-last-login.conf
    lastlogin = mysql:/etc/dovecot/dovecot-last-login.conf

plugin {
    # Add 2 lines
    last_login_dict = proxy::lastlogin
    last_login_key = last-login/%s/%u/%d/%r/%l

Hi,

You are right IP address not get updated for each login. Sorry i have not posted modified sql statement yesterday.

That is why i have modified sql statement as below

############################################## 

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `last_login` (
    `username` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL DEFAULT '',
    `domain` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL DEFAULT '',
    `ip` VARCHAR(40) NOT NULL DEFAULT '',
    `imap` INT(11) DEFAULT NULL,
    `pop3` INT(11) DEFAULT NULL,
    `lda` INT(11) DEFAULT NULL,
    `timestamp` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
    PRIMARY KEY (`username`,`ip`),
    INDEX (`domain`),
    INDEX (`timestamp`),
    INDEX (`imap`),
    INDEX (`pop3`),
    INDEX (`lda`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;

##############################################

in above statement i have define two primary key one for username and other for ip, so if user loged in with different ip address or isp, immediately new row get inserted in db and with the help of current timestamp i can easily trace out last login.

Thanks
Sunil

I don't think this is a good idea.

If user logins from multiple IP addresses on different devices, you will get multiple records. How are you going to clean up this sql table? and how do you define which records should be removed?

Hi,

Thanks,

Re: Track user last login time

- What's the SQL commands to keep last 3 logins?
- I'm afraid that i have no plan to implement this imperfect solution. sad
