Roundcube can't receive emails


Hello,

Can someone guide me how to test the mail software? I can send emails but can't receive. I have Dovecot - telnet to 143 port says Dovecot OK. Same with port 25. I get back mail delivery problem. 550. No mail shows in Roundcube. Log files maillog shows nothing, seems empty. It's clean install. On testing Exim log I get something like this:

pop3-login auth Error: passrd-file: stat (/etc/exim/domains/myserver/passwd) failed: No such file or directory

So what is wrong, how to check and how to fix it?

Error messages are there for a reason (though I concede some of them don't communicate very well). Have you checked whether this file exists and, if so, what its contents may be?

Also, what distro/version are you using?

The files does not exist. So that's also what I'm wondering. How to create that file and what to put into it? How to configure IMAP properly? I installed Vesta Control Panel http://vestacp.com/features/

I have all kinds of authentication errors in Roundcube, Exim and Dovecot. Seems someone is playing with my server, maybe break in, trying to send emails on my behalf.
