When trying a normal telnet test to port 110, i get the error "ERR No INBOX for user"
[root@mail ~]# telnet mail.nasfund.com.pg 110
Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK dovecot ready.
+OK Logged in.
-ERR No INBOX for user.
Can someone help me with this? How can I correct and fix issue?
Appreciate your help :-)
Look in /var/mail and see if there is a file named (username) with rw--rw---- permissions and owned by that user. If not, create it.
This problem might come up because of how you are creating user accounts -- review the procedures to make sure you are creating an e-mail identity for your users as well as a home directory.
