Virtual email users in ISPConfig 3 RC1
 
Ok First the platform Ubuntu server 8.10 with ISPConfig 3.1 RC1 (not from svn) all install from the howto for this distro

i have added the domain w00t.com (and edited the host file to direct w00t.com to 127.0.0.1)

Problem:

Virtual mail users, when i create a mail account and try and login it fails

a quick look at the mail logs

tail -f /var/log/mail.log
shows the following error

Code:

Feb  3 19:30:51 master pop3d: Connection, ip=[::ffff:192.168.1.17]
Feb  3 19:30:51 master pop3d: LOGIN, user=test@w00t.com, ip=[::ffff:192.168.1.17], port=[1590]
Feb  3 19:30:51 master pop3d: scancur opendir("cur"): No such file or directory

A quick google led me to think permissions (but after reading a few threads i think this is down to mailbox needs to recive at least one mail to be created fully)

Code:

Feb  3 19:20:22 master postfix/smtpd[4981]: 730F8A7CBC: client=unknown[192.168.1.17]
Feb  3 19:20:30 master postfix/cleanup[5246]: 730F8A7CBC: message-id=<20090203192022.730F8A7CBC@master.odysseydsl.co.uk>

Feb  3 19:20:30 master postfix/cleanup[5246]: A5E37A7CC8: message-id=<20090203192022.730F8A7CBC@master.odysseydsl.co.uk>

Feb  3 19:20:30 master postfix/qmgr[4762]: 730F8A7CBC: removed


So i have succesfully sent an email to the account but still the same problem

Code:

Feb  3 19:34:35 master pop3d: Connection, ip=[::ffff:192.168.1.17]
Feb  3 19:34:35 master pop3d: LOGIN, user=test@w00t.com, ip=[::ffff:192.168.1.17], port=[1594]
Feb  3 19:34:35 master pop3d: scancur opendir("cur"): No such file or directory

What am i missing ? the bottle of Grants is running low and im at the end of my teather here ^_^

Of course all of this is in a VM (Pre production) Hence modding the hosts file etc

Ok looks like im not getting the mail through after all :o

Any Ideas ?

Copys of main.cf master.cf and netstat -tap removed as they no longer serve a purpose.

I suggest that you update to the latest SVN version by running:
Code:

ispconfig_update_from_svn

Hey :D

I decided the box had been messed with to much trying to diagnose the issues, So decided to do a fresh vanilla install with 8.04 LTS Server followed the guide to the latter then installed from the SVN.

Created a new domain added a user mailbox then sent it a test mail.
And w00t the Vmail directory now contains the folders as expected for the domain and user account.

So far so good, except the mail isnt in the users inbox ?
checked all services and amavis wasnt started (Problem with the hostname not being a fqdn) i edited the file /etc/amavis/conf.d/05-node_id to hard set the fqdn for the server (if the hostname was a fqdn to start with i might not of had this problem) Then started amavis service /etc/init.d/amavis start and a min later i HAVE MAIL :D:D:D

The only reason i post this is i have spent the last 2 days crawling the forum and looking at others problems and using them to try and diagnose the issues and wanted to lay out my route to a working install ^_^

On a good note i have a far better understanding of the setup structure now which can only be a good thing.

And thanks to all who offered help and solved problems in other threads leaving me a means to diagnose.
