ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server
Like some other people I get the message "ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server" when trying to connect to squirrelmail. Lookign at mail.err I see an entry:
postfix/trivial-rewrite[16134]: fatal: proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/,lock|fold_fix): table lookup problem
as well as
postfix/trivial-rewrite[16134]: fatal: proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-virtual_do,lock|fold_fix): table lookup problem

Has anybody got an idea what I might have missed?

Are the MySQL details in /etc/postfix/ correct?

hstoellinger 18th November 2009 18:43

/etc/postfix # cat
user = mailadmin
password = xxxxxxxxxx
dbname = mail
query = SELECT domain AS virtual FROM domains WHERE domain='%s'

In "mailadmin" I deliberately left out the underscore ("_"). Where else does "mailadmin" have to be specified?

And the MySQL user is mailadmin, or is it mail_admin?

ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server
Hello Falko,
It really WAS mailadmin (not mail_admin). However, I have now installed everything afresh. When trying to log-in, I now get the "Unknown user or password incorrect." message (I enter "info@localhost", which is defined this way in the users table of the mail database of Mysql).
In addition, there are various errors in "" and "mail.log" respectively.
"mail.err" is empty. I suppose there are errors in my definitions. In any case I enclose the pertinent snippets of the two files. I would very much appreciate your help - I consider myself a newbie in this complex matter. Thanks in advance - and greetings from Salzburg

Can you post the errors from your mail log?

Which tutorial (URL) did you use?

[solved] ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP Server
Hello Falko,
Thanks a lot for your attention (even on a Sunday!). Actually, I must appologize. I went through my definitions and found a couple of errors (typos, wrong access rights, etc.). Everything now works fine. I do have another question, though: I would like messages and prompts to be in German. Could you maybe point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance and - Have a nice Sunday! Regards H. Stoellinger, Salzburg, Austria

ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server
Hello again, I have found out how to change the language --- ofcourse, it's under Options...
I also have changed the config-file accordingly. Sorry for using your time - and thanks again. H. S.
