I think I am getting close. I am still getting an error when trying to send from KMail client.
I am able to access everything else. And Cyrus still fails...

I have my email client configured: Everything matches the mysql database.

SMTP
Host: mail.hingedmind.com
Name: root
Port: 25
Server requires authenticatio:
Login: root@hingedmind.com
Password: xxx

Starting IMAP/POP3 service (cyrus-imapd) failed

Error:

Sending failed:
Authentication failed.
Most likely the password is wrong.
The server responded: "Error: authentication failed"
The message will stay in the 'outbox' folder until you either fix the problem (e.g. a broken address) or remove the message from the 'outbox' folder.
The following transport protocol was used:
root@hingedmind.com


Mail Log:

I'm not sure what that is, master would be some service and if it's needed and not starting then you would have to track down it's config file and have a look at line 23 obviously.

The command I mentioned would be added to your IPTABLES firewall script. I'm not sure where that's hidden in SUSE, you could instead add it to rc.local (/etc/init.d/rc.local?)

I was able to get a message sent using webmin. However not able to get mail. I think it is the location of the Maildir. The location is at /home/vmail/hingedmind.com/root/Maildir/

When configuring the directories it is getting confused

home_mailbox = /home/vmail/hingedmind.com/ This causes confusion because of where the Maildir is. root/Maildir

virtual_mailbox_base /home/vmail

I must be missing something simple....

Was able to fix by turning off the User mail file directory and Mail file in user home directories. I set Mail directory in user home directories to Maildir and it seemed to work.

I noticed when I sent an email the to and from had this address. root@mail.hingedmind.com (root) Why is it inserting "mind" (hostname)?

Thanks

In main.cf, read the section about the "myorigin" parameter.

Also, if changing myorigin isn't granular enough to meet your requirements, then see the postfix ADDRESS_REWRITING_README about implementing the following parameters (see below). NOTE: The base directory for all postfix readme files can be found main.cf. Look for the "readme_directory" parameter.

canonical_maps
sender_canonical_maps
recipient_canonical_maps

Thanks Scowles. I noticed I made a mistake in that post. It is showing actually sapient@mind.hingedmind.com.

Also I think this is some how related. Still having trusted user problems. I think this is about the last thing on this list to figure out.

Mail Log:

Jan 18 02:32:22 mind postfix/qmgr[3010]: E26B439A11: from=<sapient@mind.hingedmind.com>, size=633, nrcpt=3 (queue active)
Jan 18 02:32:22 mind postfix/pipe[10024]: E26B439A11: to=<root@hingedmind.com>, relay=maildrop, delay=45065, status=deferred (temporary failure. Command output: /usr/local/bin/maildrop: You are not a trusted user. )
Jan 18 02:32:23 mind postfix/pipe[10025]: E26B439A11: to=<sapient@hingedmind.com>, relay=maildrop, delay=45066, status=deferred (temporary failure. Command output: /usr/local/bin/maildrop: You are not a trusted user. )

Here is what is happening and I think it may be related.

I can get my root user to see its mail box at /home/vmail/hingedmind.com/root/Maildir/. However, everyone else shows a path of /home/vmail/hingedmind.com/Maildir/user.

Not sure why. Have been tweeking

User mail file directory /home/vmail/hingedmind.com

Mail file directory style mail/username
Mail file in user home directories None
Mail directory in user home directories Maildir
Usermin-style folders subdirectory in home directory Maildir
Usermin Read Mail configuration directory in home directory Maildir

Though these parameters have an impact, the combination to get everyone pointed correctly is a problem.
