howtos:mail_crypt_-_decrypt_encrypt_mails

Intro

mailcow compress and encrypt mail stored inside the “mailcowdockerized_vmail-vol-1” docker volume.

The documentation has a description on how you decrypt or re-encrypt the mail files inside the volume.

This requires that you enter the dovecot container and paste the logic. That is rather cumbersome, so here is a bash script which you can run from anywhere which takes care of that.

Script Which Takes It All

It take two flags “-d” for decryption and “-e” for encryption, which needs to be supplied when you run it.

#!/bin/bash

# Define the path inside the container
CONTAINER_PATH="/tmp/mail_crypt_tool.sh"
DOCKER_COMPOSE_FILE="/opt/mailcow-dockerized/docker-compose.yml"

# Function to decrypt files
decrypt_files() {
    find /var/vmail/ -type f -regextype egrep -regex '.*S=.*W=.*' | while read -r file; do
        if [[ $(head -c7 "$file") == "CRYPTED" ]]; then
            doveadm fs get compress lz4:1:crypt:private_key_path=/mail_crypt/ecprivkey.pem:public_key_path=/mail_crypt/ecpubkey.pem:posix:prefix=/ \
            "$file" > "/tmp/$(basename "$file")"
            if [[ -s "/tmp/$(basename "$file")" ]]; then
                chmod 600 "/tmp/$(basename "$file")"
                chown 5000:5000 "/tmp/$(basename "$file")"
                mv "/tmp/$(basename "$file")" "$file"
