pop3 SSL/TLS not running, smtp+imap TLS/SSL ok
On my System (Suse10 Perfect Setup, using Maildir) all mail services working fine: pop3, imap, imap/TLS/SSL, smtp, smtp_auth, smtp/TLS

but I didnt get POP3-SSL/TLS and POP3 secure authentication working


pwcheck_method: saslauthd
mech_list: plain login


authmodulelistorig="authuserdb authpam authldap authcustom authpipe"
all files are default with the ispconfig suse10 perfect setup

these related daemons are running:
  • /usr/lib/courier-authlib/authdaemond
  • /usr/sbin/fam
  • /usr/sbin/saslauthd -a pam (a few instances - is that ok?)
  • /usr/lib/courier-imap/couriertcpd -address=0 -maxprocs=40 -maxperip=4 -nodnslookup -noidentlookup 143 /usr/sbin/imaplogin /usr/sbin/imapd Maildir
  • /usr/sbin/courierlogger -pid=/var/run/ -start -name=imapd /usr/lib/courier-imap/couriertcpd -address=0 -maxprocs=40 -maxperip=4 -nodnslookup -noidentlookup 143 /usr/sbin/imaplogin /usr/sbin/imapd Maildir
the firewall is running - ports 110, 995, 465, 143, 993 are unlocked
couriertcpd is running on port 143
shouldŽnt that be port 993?

I have another system with courier-imap/exim. There all SSL/TLS services are working fine - and all related configurations are identical (more or less ...) with my courier-imap/postfix/ISPconfig system.
So IŽm totaly confused and dont know nothing at all anymore :-)
All looks fine - but it doesnt work :-(

Can anybody help? Thanks in advance!

thank you falko!

although two persons at our site researched one day for each with this issue, we didnŽt found this thread here in this forum ... "sometimes youŽre not able to see one tree in a whole forrest" (hey, this german proverb sounds good in english :-)
