I'm trying to set up an e-mail server where system users can access their mail using webmail.
I running debian etch and installed squirrelmail, courier-imap, courier-authlib and postfix. When I'm trying to login in squirrelmail I get the following message:
Unknown user or password incorrect.
I've got the feeling my courier configuration doesn't work well. Or courier doesn't recognize my system users or I have to configure my domain name(part after the @ sign) somewhere, So courier knows witch domain local users are using.
evolution isn't a webmail client,
And the only thing I want to be configured is webmail.
My mail.log is telling me the following thing
Mar 18 20:06:25 server imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
Mar 18 20:06:25 server imapd: LOGIN FAILED, user=bart, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
Mar 18 20:06:30 server imapd: LOGOUT, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1], rcvd=43, sent=323
Mar 18 20:06:39 server imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
Mar 18 20:06:39 server imapd: LOGIN FAILED, firstname.lastname@example.org, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
Mar 18 20:06:44 server imapd: LOGOUT, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1], rcvd=59, sent=323
and my imapd has the following configured:
I also created a locals file and a defaultdomain file.
Is the're a way I can test my mailsettings using putty or ssh
Hi I was searching the internet and now I'm understanding what the problem is.
I don't have to login with the domain name.
Now I get this messages when trying to log in
ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.
Using google I find out this is because users didn't recieve any mail yet and so mailboxes arn't create.
Now I want to know if it is possible to create mailboxes the first time a user is trying to access them
I still don't know if it is possible to create inboxes at the time of access but I also have another question.
Is it possible to change de default Maildir?
I find out wath I have to change but I don't know how to change it.
In /etc/default/courier I have to change MAILDIR.
I want to change this to
or something, but I don't know how to specify the user.
I also have to change /etc/postfix/main.cf and I have to add something like this
home_mailbox = /share/mail/$USER
but here I have the same problem. I don't know how to specify the mailuser name.
If I have this all working I want to check out virtual user using userdb for mailinggroups and aliases
