Sendmail Problem


The solution is

first we will create one user and move that user to /home to /home/popaccounts/ example

adduser -s /sbin/nologin redhat

mv /home/redhat /home/popaccounts/


vi virtusertable

add entry redhat

then open generictable

add entry


after sendmail service

/etc/init.d/sendmail condrestart.

Now we create pop accounts

saslauthd2 redhat
password : ******
again : ******

after that create system password

passwd redhat
password : ******
again : ******
final start service

/etc/init.d/saslauthd condrestart

Then login through webmail. its works fine .
