Problems with Postfix/Courier


Heya,

I recently followed a howto (http://howtoforge.net/virtual-users-...be-ubuntu-6.06) on my gutsy VPS.

The installation, etc went fine, everything starts but whenever I try to access the mailserver via Kontact/KMail I get a "Temporary problem, please try again later" error... Via SquirrelMail I get a "Connection dropped" error.

Any ideas what the problem might be?

Well, with Kontact or Kmail, what protocol are you using to connect with? And with that in mind, is or are the ports open with POP or IMAP running?

Heya,

I tried using IMAP and POP, both won't connect. I can access the servers via telnet, they respond to EHLO, etc... It's just logging in.

Got some information from the logs:

mail.err
Code:
Jan 29 18:24:51 elerosse imapd: authentication error: Input/output error
mail.log
Code:
Jan 29 18:24:51 elerosse imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:66.160.197.33]
