My postfix is working fine, when I send mail to my intended email address, it appears in webmin okay, so I know incomming mail is alright.
However, I cannot pop nor IMAP my server. I'm on SuSe 9.1 and attemping to get this going. I tried courier imap, no go, tried cyrus no go. I'm attemping just plain old IMAP.
When I try to pop the server, I get this error:
Command Stream end of file whiel reading line user=??? host=myhost [ip]
Okay, so looking into that, that error appears just to be my mail server saying that the client is trying to connect, and not disconnecting properly.
The error I get on outlook from where I am popping, is
There was a problem logging onto your mail server. Your User Name was rejected. Account 'POP' Server blah blah ... ERR unknown AUTHORIZATION state command.
sooo.. is that telling me I don't have my pop/imap set up correctly to allow users to log in? And if so, where would I find the file where I can change that? Can't be main.cf, as that is a postfix file. I've changed the /etc.xinetd/imap file so it is allowed... but I don't see any other configuration files with IMAP. HELP!
Probably a firewall problem, so check your iptables. Also check hosts.deny and hosts.allow. In hosts.deny make sure you have ALL: ALL and in hosts.allow you have imap:all, smtp:all, pop3:all (I think that is what they are called listed in services file).
I think you need to add a few users to the desire mail servers (imap or pop3).
