Creating new mailboxes in Postfix+Cyrus IMAP+Saslauthd


Hi,

I have configured Postfix+Cyrus IMAP+Saslauth in Fedora Core 3.

I have been succesful in sending mails and receiving mails from already created accounts in box. But now I want to add new users to it.

The steps I am taking -

1) Creating password in SASLAUTH.
echo 'pass' | saslpasswd -p -c "user"

2) Logging in as cyrus
su cyrus

3) Invoking cyradm and then
cm user

All these steps are executing without a hitch. But any time I try to send a mail to user - my stmp is rejecting it saying user does not exist.

Regards

No.

Actually I overcame this problem by creating user accounts on Linux OS. And even though I had specified use of sasl password - I can only send and receive mail through OS password.

I had thought that u did not need to create users in OS and can configure it in cyrus. But I dont seem to be able to get it to working.....

Thanks for your interest.

Looking forward to your reply

Regards
