Qmail is an smtp server, not an IMAP server - if you want to use squirrelmail you will need to install an IMAP server.

Let me rephrase my question again. Since Qmail is an SMTP server and not an IMAP server what are you using to perform the IMAP server functions on your system?

Hi,

Since this thread is on Qmail / IMAP / SquirrelMail. I just hv the following issue to add:

OS: Redhat 9

Qmail -> just installed a few days ago
with Checkpassword patched and working, as per instructions found in lifewithqmail website.

Able to download emails via POP email client I am using: Thunderbird 0.5

then, following instructions found in qmailrocks.org, I figure out squirrelmail may be a pretty useful web interface for mail checking, so I installed Vpopmail, Courier-imap, Courierpassd, SquirrelMail, plug-in for Courierpassd for use in SquirrelMail.


When that is setup and running, able to log in/out of SquirrelMail, able to send/receive emails. But when attempting to change password: receives the following error message:


--> 500 Restricted or non-existant uid.


But if I enter a wrong password (delibrately) the following message:


Your old password is not correct.



one thing I noticed which was not consistent with the instructions that I followed was that when I 'telnet localhost 106' on the server

user name@mydomain.com
pass 123

didn't not work
whileas

user name_alone
pass 123

works. therefore it occurs to me that my "mydomain.com" was not properly entered somewhere? this might or might not have a implication or relation to the password problem I am facing above. I am interested to solve the password change issue, but suspects that the "mydomain.com" issue may have some relations to the matter.

Some expert's advise on likely sources of error most appreciated. Thanks.

Pearls before swine...

I am having big problems with the install for courierpassd. I got through vqadmin, vpopmail, qmail, qmailadmin, etc and then got stuck here.

Followed instructions here: http://www.qmailrocks.org/imap_rh.htm

Code:
courierpassd	106/tcp		courierpassd	# Courierpassd
courierpassd	106/udp		courierpassd	# Courierpassd
Restarted xinetd and imap, imaps as stated.

I'm no firewall genius, but firestarter is configured to have port 106 open.

Check this out, sooo weird==


Code:
[root@mine me]# nmap localhost -p 106

Starting nmap 3.48 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2004-04-21 01:16 CDT
Interesting ports on localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1):
PORT    STATE  SERVICE
106/tcp closed pop3pw

Nmap run completed -- 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.356 seconds
So, of course,

Code:
[root@mine me]# telnet localhost 106
Trying 127.0.0.1...
telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.1: Connection refused
and BTW:

Code:
 [root@mine me]# lsof -i | grep courier
couriertc 23273     root    5u  IPv4 1218900       TCP *:imap (LISTEN)
couriertc 23316     root    5u  IPv4 1218990       TCP *:imaps (LISTEN)


Huh? Somebody tell me how to get port 106 open. Come on, I know you know. Puhleeeeease.....

-O

What are you trying to run on port 106?

Is there are service listening to that port?
netstat -nlp

If so then check your firewall:
iptables -nL
