Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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:
Unknown user or password incorrect.
The following error appears in /var/log/auth.log:
Jan 30 18:26:53 Apollo imapd: 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: Accepted password for dennis from 192.168.200.50 port 3403
Jan 30 18:31:56 Apollo ssh(pam_unix): 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.
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.
(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 ...
