dovecot login problem
 
Hi,

ISPC 2 Version: 2.2.40 on Fedora 15.

Everything worked fine till todays morning. Created new site, added new user and when I want to login to mail I've got such error:

Dec 20 08:57:31 fed dovecot: pop3-login: Login: user=<web24_ttt>, method=PLAIN, rip=1.1.1.1, lip=2.2.2.2, mpid=25798
Dec 20 08:57:31 fed dovecot: pop3(web24_ttt): Error: user web24_ttt: Initialization failed: mail_location not set and autodetection failed: Mail storage autodetection failed with home=/var/www/web24/user/web24_ttt
Dec 20 08:57:31 fed dovecot: pop3(web24_ttt): Error: Invalid user settings. Refer to server log for more information.

Also there is no entry in vhosts_ispconfig.conf about new site.

Is it possible to fix? Where to start?

TIA

Try to restart ispconfig and then check again a minute later.

Everything the same. With old sites everything works fine. With new one, not.

Are there any errors in your mail log (in the /var/log/ directory)?

What's your Dovecot version?

andron26 21st December 2012 14:52

dovecot version 2.0.19

falko 22nd December 2012 16:39

Can you post your dovecot.conf?

andron26 27th December 2012 08:08

dovecot.conf, what is strange that I have about 8 old sites and when create new email user it works. It does not work on new site.

## Dovecot configuration file

# If you're in a hurry, see http://wiki2.dovecot.org/QuickConfiguration

# "doveconf -n" command gives a clean output of the changed settings. Use it
# instead of copy&pasting files when posting to the Dovecot mailing list.

# '#' character and everything after it is treated as comments. Extra spaces
# and tabs are ignored. If you want to use either of these explicitly, put the
# value inside quotes, eg.: key = "# char and trailing whitespace "

# Default values are shown for each setting, it's not required to uncomment
# those. These are exceptions to this though: No sections (e.g. namespace {})
# or plugin settings are added by default, they're listed only as examples.
# Paths are also just examples with the real defaults being based on configure
# options. The paths listed here are for configure --prefix=/usr
# --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var

# Protocols we want to be serving.
#protocols = imap pop3

# A comma separated list of IPs or hosts where to listen in for connections.
# "*" listens in all IPv4 interfaces, "::" listens in all IPv6 interfaces.
# If you want to specify non-default ports or anything more complex,
# edit conf.d/master.conf.
#listen = *, ::

# Base directory where to store runtime data.
#base_dir = /var/run/dovecot/

# Name of this instance. Used to prefix all Dovecot processes in ps output.
#instance_name = dovecot

# Greeting message for clients.
#login_greeting = Dovecot ready.

# Space separated list of trusted network ranges. Connections from these
# IPs are allowed to override their IP addresses and ports (for logging and
# for authentication checks). disable_plaintext_auth is also ignored for
# these networks. Typically you'd specify your IMAP proxy servers here.
#login_trusted_networks =

# Sepace separated list of login access check sockets (e.g. tcpwrap)
#login_access_sockets =

# Show more verbose process titles (in ps). Currently shows user name and
# IP address. Useful for seeing who are actually using the IMAP processes
# (eg. shared mailboxes or if same uid is used for multiple accounts).
#verbose_proctitle = no

# Should all processes be killed when Dovecot master process shuts down.
# Setting this to "no" means that Dovecot can be upgraded without
# forcing existing client connections to close (although that could also be
# a problem if the upgrade is e.g. because of a security fix).
#shutdown_clients = yes

# If non-zero, run mail commands via this many connections to doveadm server,
# instead of running them directly in the same process.
#doveadm_worker_count = 0
# UNIX socket or host:port used for connecting to doveadm server
#doveadm_socket_path = doveadm-server

# Space separated list of environment variables that are preserved on Dovecot
# startup and passed down to all of its child processes. You can also give
# key=value pairs to always set specific settings.
#import_environment = TZ

##
## Dictionary server settings
##

# Dictionary can be used to store key=value lists. This is used by several
# plugins. The dictionary can be accessed either directly or though a
# dictionary server. The following dict block maps dictionary names to URIs
# when the server is used. These can then be referenced using URIs in format
# "proxy::<name>".

dict {
#quota = mysql:/etc/dovecot/dovecot-dict-sql.conf.ext
#expire = sqlite:/etc/dovecot/dovecot-dict-sql.conf.ext
}

# Most of the actual configuration gets included below. The filenames are
# first sorted by their ASCII value and parsed in that order. The 00-prefixes
# in filenames are intended to make it easier to understand the ordering.
!include conf.d/*.conf

# A config file can also tried to be included without giving an error if
# it's not found:
!include_try local.conf

Added to /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-mail.conf
mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir

and it started working.
