I Implement a mail server by using sendmail, dovecot.
My requirement is that user must not able to delete mail so that we can monitor user activities.

Any help will be appreciated

Rather than blocking the users form deleting emails why don't you configure an email archive server ? that's really the proper way to save email for compliance reasons.. plus you'll have global search capabilities to aid in your 'monitoring'


delete, dovecot, mail, sendmail
