I saw where several other people were having this issue and one person went in and manually created his domain folder like /home/vmail/domain/username. I did this the same and it got both of us one step farther. I finally figured out this is a mail folder and permission issue. I can successfuly connect and authenticate with the server with squirrelmail and outlook, squirrelmail gives the imap connection dropped after authenticating and oe says mydomain/account is not there. well i manually created the domain and account folder chowned with vmail properties and i get one step farther but still more folder errors. squirrelmail now shows the 2 frames after login but this error shows in each frame:
ERROR: Could not complete request.
Query: SELECT "INBOX"
Reason Given: Unable to open this mailbox.
I know alot of people had this problem and i would be so grateful if someone could help me fix the folder problems and direct me in the right direction as to fix them being automatically created. the sending an email to the box didnt work.
