Cyrus IMAP Configuration ??
 
I'm still having trouble setting up the default IMAP server that the Perfect Setup - Fedora Core 4 guides me to install. It should be the suite of cyrus apps.

I've tried installing it to the letter 2 times, but I still can't get my IMAP client (Outlook Express) to connect to the server.

Just to let you know, the POP, SMTP, Web, Shell, etc. servers are all running smoothly and looks like there are no problems. It just seems to be the IMAP service.

I don't think it is a firewall problem because the server is connected with port 143 open (I think that is the default port for IMAP).

Any ideas?

Is your imap server listed when you execute: netsta -tap

Do you get any errors when you start your imap server or are any errors in the messages or syslog?

This is what is listed when I run netstat -tap:

Check your Xinetd configuration ( in /etx/xinetd/) which imap binary is connected to the imap port. And what about my 2. question: Any errors in the mail log or syslog?

That looks ok. IMAP is running. Maybe you have a firewall on your client computer (where Outlook Express runs) that doesn't allow connections to port 143?

I tried a different IMAP client (Mozilla Thunderbird). I get the following message:

Mail server mail.knifecenter.com is not an IMAP4 mail server.

This is so frustrating!

Have you checked the things I've posted above?

kisong 21st October 2005 21:18

Where are the syslog and messages log files? I will post them if you tell me where the logs are located.

Log files are in /var/log. Dont post the complete logfiles here, they are too large. Search for IMAP errors and post the errors here.

This is the xinetd conf file:

************
#
# Simple configuration file for xinetd
#
# Some defaults, and include /etc/xinetd.d/

defaults
{
instances = 60
log_type = SYSLOG authpriv
log_on_success = HOST PID
log_on_failure = HOST
cps = 25 30
}

includedir /etc/xinetd.d
