imap pop3 on solaris 10
I am trying to configue imap/pop3 on solaris 10 x86 server.
I have installed
packages from www.sunfreeware.com .
Now I am trying to configure with the help of
But when after writing following in /etc/inetd.conf file
pop stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/sbin/ipop2d ipop2d
pop3 stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/sbin/ipop3d ipop3d
imap stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/sbin/imapd imapd
pop3s stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/sbin/ipop3d ipop3d
imaps stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/sbin/imapd imapd
I give the command
It does not accpet pop3s and imaps line and produces the following error.
[/usr/local/sbin]# inetconv -f
100235/1 -> /var/svc/manifest/network/rpc/100235_1-rpc_ticotsord.xml
Importing 100235_1-rpc_ticotsord.xml ...Done
inetconv: Error /etc/inet/inetd.conf line 27 invalid or inconsistent fields: service-name protocol
pop3 -> /var/svc/manifest/network/pop3-tcp.xml
Importing pop3-tcp.xml ...Done
imap -> /var/svc/manifest/network/imap-tcp.xml
Importing imap-tcp.xml ...Done
inetconv: Error /etc/inet/inetd.conf line 30 invalid or inconsistent fields: service-name protocol
inetconv: Error /etc/inet/inetd.conf line 31 invalid or inconsistent fields: service-name protocol
what should I do now?
Are pop3s and imaps defined in the /etc/services file ?
Thank jlliagre :)
you are genius.
Above problem solved when I added two line in /etc/services
Now some queries about that
I have created ssl certificate as give link at
When I try to connect a user from client machine receiving following error in server log file
Mar 7 04:25:11 alpha.example.com ipop3d: [ID 890198 mail.alert] Unable to load certificate from /usr/local/ssl/certs/ipop3d.pem, host=[192.168.20.230]
Mar 7 04:25:13 alpha.example.com ipop3d: [ID 890198 mail.alert] Unable to load certificate from /usr/local/ssl/certs/ipop3d.pem, host=[192.168.20.230]
At last I am able to solve this problem too.
I am using the command
/usr/local/ssl/bin/openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -out imapd.pem \
-keyout imapd.pem -days 365
Which is creating the certificate with the name of imapd.pem
While my imap application is trying to load pop3d.pem
I just replace the name and problem solved.
Hi guys I have a similar problem. I installed the SFWimap package from the solaris 10 companion CD.
I got to install the POP3 and IMAP servers. I also tried the secure IMAP and PO3 servers according to the same thread. When I tried to connect with secure IMAP there was no connection and on the solaris console I got the message:
Oct 21 20:33:05 hercules imapd: This server does not support SSL
Well, I searched a little and decided to install openssl 9.8 (from www.sunfreeware.com). After installing I rebooted the machine but I continue getting the same message.
Can you help me in getting my server to support SSL?
