I've updated to v6.0.0 fine, but had to make few adjustments:

  • Set davmail.logFilePath=/var/log/davmail.log
  • Create and chown to davmail the /var/log/davmail.log file

Otherwise, I had errors like davmail - Unable to set log file path

The update to v6.0.0 broke it for me, I get DavMailAuthenticationException and could only downgrade to v5.5.1. The repo warns “HttpClient 4 migration in progress: Trunk will not be as stable as usual”.

When using the davmail system service, the process would fail on reboot with the message:

Started DavMail for maastricht.
davmail[401]: 2020-12-27 09:41:01,147 ERROR [main] davmail  - Unable to bind server socket for SMTP on port 1025: port not allowed or in use by another process
davmail[401]: Unable to bind server socket for POP on port 1110: port not allowed or in use by another process
davmail[401]: Unable to bind server socket for IMAP on port 1143: port not allowed or in use by another process

davmail[401]: Unable to bind server socket for LDAP on port 1389: port not allowed or in use by another process

Davmail binds the ports properly when manually restart the service. I managed to resolve the issue by overriding davmail@.system_service with


The altered davmail@.system_service service file is now

Description=DavMail for %i

ExecStart=/usr/bin/davmail /etc/davmail/

Along the same lines of @hamelg, I now use

JAVA_OPTS="-Xmx512M -Djdk.gtk.version=2.2"
#exec "$JAVA_HOME/bin/java" -jar "$DAVMAIL_HOME/davmail.jar" "$@"
SWT_GTK3=0 exec java $JAVA_OPTS -cp $DAVMAIL_HOME/davmail.jar:${JFX_CLASSPATH}:$DAVMAIL_HOME/lib/* davmail.DavGateway "$@"

As my script. I just edited the with that.

I was having problems with javafx and SWT. The above fixed SWT for me. I also had to roll back to openjdk8 for javafx prompts to work. With jdk14, it refuses to use o365interactive, because ""Unable to load JavaFX (OpenJFX)""

The icon in system tray is ugly. At startup, davmail logs this message : INFO [main] davmail - SWT not available, using native system tray support

To enable SWT, I run davmail like that : SWT_GTK3=0 java -Xmx512M -Djdk.gtk.version=2.2 -cp /usr/share/java/davmail/davmail.jar:/usr/share/java/swt.jar:/usr/share/java/davmail/lib/* davmail.DavGateway

in your properties file: davmail.server=true

Is there an option to run this without a GUI window showing up on gnome? I'm using the systemd user service but still a window pops up and stays in my dash. The service stops if I close the window.

can you add 'aarch64' as arch.? It works on my machine (Pinebook Pro).

Has anyone managed to get an icon showing in gnome top-icons using the systemd user service?

suger commented on 2020-04-19 05:58

Would you mind adding 'armv7h' to the arch line? It builds cleanly and works smoothly on this architecture.
