dovecot with sql authentication!!


I have build postfix with virtual doamin with mysql. and I use dovecot as mra. when I use sql authentication. only localhost can auth. other host can't within lan.

file: /etc/dovecot.conf

protocols = imap imaps pop3 pop3s
mail_location = maildir:/home/vmail/%d/%n/Maildir
first_valid_uid = 5000
last_valid_uid = 5000
postmaster_address = root@servera.example.com
sendmail_path = /usr/lib/sendmail
auth_socket_path = /var/run/dovecot/auth-master
}
auth default {
mechanisms = plain login
passdb sql {
args = /etc/dovecot-sql.conf
}
userdb static {
args = uid=5000 gid=5000 home=/home/vmail/%d/%n
}
user = nobody
socket listen {
master {
path = /var/run/dovecot/auth-master
mode = 0660
user = vmail
group = mail
}
client {
path = /var/spool/postfix/private/auth
mode = 0660
user = postfix
group = postfix
}
}
}

On dovecot server(192.168.1.15) can authentication:
[root@serverA etc]# telnet localhost pop3
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK Dovecot ready.
user john@example.com
+OK
pass John
+OK Logged in.
list
+OK 2 messages:
1 397
2 2391

On client (192.168.1.10) can't authentication:
mutt -f pop://john@example.com

I think that is because your setup uses the full email address as the login while mutt strips of the realm part and sends only the john part to the pop server.

May be you can set the username / pass in the .muttrc then just connect as pop://server_ip
