How to configure webmail server ?


I'm developing a Newsletter in Java. For that, I think in do a server webmail in my cloud server. However, since that I started the install with Postfix, Dovecot and Squirrelmail, does not work. I followed several tutorials for installation.

When, I access: ipserver/squirrelmail. Appears the following message of error:

Error connecting to IMAP server: localhost.
111 : Connection refused

Please, someone have patience for me give a solution ?

Thanks you!

Squirrelmail is a web frontend for an IMAP server, and it's telling you it can't connect to that IMAP server.

In your case, the IMAP server is Dovecot. Either Dovecot isn't running, or the IMAP daemon is running on the wrong port or isn't bound to the "localhost" ( IP (which will happen if you specify an IP address in the config file).

You should check your Dovecot configuration. Here's the relevant Wiki page from
