Squirrelmail Issue


I'm quite the newbie on Linux, so assume NOTHING except that I don't know "obvious" things. :-)

Problem: I've installed Squirrelmail to access mail on the box via the web. It's working with Apache; I can surf to the squirrelmail login page. (Getting it to work over SSL is a task for another day ...)

However, when I log in with a valid username and password (that work fine over ssh), I get the following on the squirrelmail login page:

ERROR
Unknown user or password incorrect.

The following error appears in /var/log/auth.log:

Jan 30 18:26:53 Apollo imapd[23782]: Login disabled user=dennis auth=dennis host=localhost [127.0.0.1]

By comparison, here's a successful ssh login:

Jan 30 18:31:56 Apollo sshd[23794]: Accepted password for dennis from 192.168.200.50 port 3403
Jan 30 18:31:56 Apollo ssh(pam_unix)[23796]: session opened for user dennis by (uid=1000)

SMTP server is Postfix (which works fine), POP3 server is qpopper (working fine), imap server is uw-imapd (default config). Running Debian unstable.

Ummmm ... help!

Thanks,
Dennis

maybe take a look at your imap server config file?

Here's the output when I telnet to the box on tcp 143:

* OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4REV1 LOGIN-REFERRALS STARTTLS LOGINDISABLED] apollo.mydomain.net IMAP4rev1 2003.339 at Sun, 1 Feb 2004 14:33:39 -0600 (CST)

Here's what I can find for config files for imapd:

Apollo:/etc/pam.d# more imap
#
# The PAM configuration file for the UW IMAPd `imap' service
#

# The standard Unix authentication modules, used with
# NIS (man nsswitch) as well as normal /etc/passwd and
# /etc/shadow entries.
@include common-auth
@include common-account
@include common-session
@include login

(I added @include login, which didn't help, other than that it's the default).

I'm starting to conclude I'm in over my head here ...

Sigh,
Dennis
