I am fairly new to debian, I installed courier-imap and squirrelmail, using authuserdb as authentication module for courier-imap.
when I try logging in into squirrelmail I keep getting this error msg -
ERROR: Could not complete request.
Query: SELECT "INBOX"
Reason Given: Unable to open this mailbox.
my mail.log looks as follows:
localhost imaplogin: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]

Nov 27 18:05:10 localhost imaplogin: DISCONNECTED, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1], time=5
I am unable to figure out why it's not getting the supplied password.
however when I do authlibtest I login in successfully.
Hope I have posted enough info for someone to look into and figure out what's happening.
Appreciate any help.
