Falko, thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Even though my config.php for the change_sqlpass is exactly as in the howto. But the problem lies somewhere there... because when I disable that plugin using the conf.pl script, everything works just fine. Here are the lines based on ur tutorial that I put in my config.php
$csp_dsn = 'mysql://mail_admin:*******@10.10.0.200/mail';
$lookup_password_query = 'SELECT count(*) FROM users WHERE email = "%1" AND password = %4';
$password_update_queries = array('UPDATE users SET password = %4 WHERE email = "%1"');
$password_encryption = 'MYSQLENCRYPT';
$csp_salt_static = 'LEFT(password, 2)';
//$csp_salt_query = 'SELECT salt FROM users WHERE username = "%1"';
$csp_delimiter = '@';
Of course in the first line, my user for the database 'mail' is mail_admin and I put the appropriate password. However, I am not sure if the last part is correct: @10.10.0.200/mail
Because my setup is a little different. The postfix/courier are on the 10.10.0.200 server. Perhaps the problem lies here. What would be the correct directive?
Thanks a lot. Cheers.
