Squirrelmail problem
 
Hi,

I have installed the Squirrelmail package on my (perfect setup) Suse 10.1 / ISPConfig server. It seems to work (the logon screen comes up), but when I try to login with one of the mail accounts I get the message: 'Unknown user or password incorrect.' This seems to be the case for ANY mail account I have.
What did I do wrong?
BTW: I installed squirrelmail as ISPConfig admin.

Thank you,
regards, Tom

For squirrelmail you must use the susername (normall in the format web[ID]_user) for login and not the email address.

Hello,

no, this is what I already tried; it doesn't work.

regards, tom

Can you login with a normal mailcliebt like thunderbird or outlook?

teves 19th December 2006 15:26

Yes. The whole mail server works perfectly (at least until I wished to add webmail... ;-) )
I can access via both pop3 and imap and with or without ssl, and send in all ways also.

maybe your Imap server is not listening on localhost. Please post the output of the command:

neststat -tap

Do you get any errors in your mail logfile?

This is it:

The last three rows seem strange to me. after 'servername.' you see only a few chars of the domainname. Might this be faulty?

The servername is only truncated in the output, thats not a problem. The Imap server is listening on all IP addresses, thats fine too.

Which errors do you get in the mail logfile?

teves 19th December 2006 23:02

Seems like famd is the problem. But what is it? Never heard of it.

till 20th December 2006 10:57

If i remember correctly, famd is a daemon that whatches if a file has changed. Please correct me, if I'am wrong :)

Please execute:

ls -la /var/www/web4/user/web4_info
