courier-imap


OK, I have read through the forums and I still can't figure this out.
I have installed courier-imap. It seems to be that it does not recognize my passwords. I am using shaodw passwords. I cant figure out how to login with this.
Can someone please tell me how to get courier-imap to work?

Can you post your courier config files:
imapd
authdemonrc

Also take a look at your maillog and /var/log/messages and see if there are any entries relating to your issue in there.

It isn't that the password is failing it is that you haven't set up the directories for storing your mail.

If you are using "~/.maildir" make sure it exists and that the permissions are correct.

Now all it says is "connecting". Its been saying that for about 30mins now.

Any idea?

Thanks

You will need to give it a location relative to your home dir - ie the location that your mta delivers mail to.
