Sendmail Problem

Hai

The solution is

first we will create one user and move that user to /home to /home/popaccounts/example.com/username.for example

adduser -s /sbin/nologin redhat

mv /home/redhat /home/popaccounts/example.com.

then
/etc/mail

vi virtusertable

add entry

redhat@example.com redhat

then open generictable

add entry

redhat redhat@example.com


after sendmail service

/etc/init.d/sendmail condrestart.

Now we create pop accounts

saslauthd2 redhat
password : ******
again : ******

after that create system password

passwd redhat
password : ******
again : ******
final start service

/etc/init.d/saslauthd condrestart

Then login through webmail. its works fine .
Thanks
