Email not received in squirrelmail inbox


I have configured the squirrelmail on the server with sendmail and dovecot. I am able to send mail but when any one reply me or send me mail, I am not able to received that mails in "squirrelmail INBOX". The mail display in "/var/spool/mail" directory. I am not able to understand where I am wrong.

Please help me how to resolve this issue.

Thanks and regards,

I think you need to provide more info to help you.

1. Which distro?

2. Does the mail arrive correctly in dovecot ?
Squirrelmail does not recieve mail on it's own, it just connects to an imap server, as far as I remember.

So first thing to check would be, if you can connect with Thunderbird or any other imap client to the mailbox on the dovecot server .

If not, you have a dovecot problem, not a Squirrelmail problem
If yes, check your squirrelmail configuration, if it uses the right user and password, or check your apache error logs for for hints like open basedir stuff etc
