Hi all,

we run dovecot for a long time now with no complains from the users … until 
this week. Some users say, the search in mailfolders from iPhone (which only 
stores a few mails and search most on the server as I know) or our web mailer 
(SOGo, which I currently search also on the imap server) is „slow“.

As this is sort of individual experience, I was thinking of ways to speed up 
the search and came across the fts_solr plugin.

My question is, can I „just“ configure the its_solg plugin as described at the 
dovecot wiki? https://wiki.dovecot.org/Plugins/FTS/Solr 

How difficult is is to set up a solr server for that purpose? As our current 
mail hardware is not busy at all, is it ok to install Solr on the same 

May be someone using that setup can give me some hints?

And: How hard is it to switch back to the „build in“ default search if we don’t 
see any benefit from hosting a solr server too.

        Thanks for feedback and suggestions . Regards . Götz
