Default Cannot login to SquirrelMail

Hi there.

I'm running CentOS5.5 and I've followed HowtoForge's fantastic guide to get it all up and running they way I want it too.

Unfortunately however I cannot login to Squirrelmail or even get my e-mail to work at all from my BlackBerry.

I'm brand new to CentOS and I'm very used to Windows Server - but as it recently crashed I decided to migrate to a new OS; so I followed the guide to the letter.

The only thing I did not do is on page 4 - the links didn't work for dovecot so I found the links for the updated version:

Code:
rpm -ivh http://packages.atrpms.net/dist/el5/dovecot/dovecot-2.0.5-1_120.el5.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh http://packages.atrpms.net/dist/el5/dovecot-sieve/dovecot-sieve-0.1.18-6.el5.i386.rpm
I also tried this step as advised.

Quote:
rm -fr /usr/lib/dovecot/
ln -s /usr/lib64/dovecot/ /usr/lib/dovecot
But by doing so made dovecot stop working and the only way I could get it to work was not follow this command.

Everything else however I followed to the letter and it almost works great.

I've figured out how to setup a client, domain, an e-mail domain and mailbox but when I try and login to webmail it states that Unknown user or password incorrect.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I cannot get my head round it!

Thanks


Ash

Oops.

I think I may have posted this in the wrong section as I am running ISPConfig.
If it could be put in the right place that would be great thanks and any help regarding my issue would be greatly appreciated!

Struggling to find what I need with Google!

Thanks

Ash

ISPConfig 3 doesn't work with Dovecot 2.x - you need 1.2.x.

You can find the latest Dovecot 1.2.x here: http://packages.atrpms.net/dist/el5/dovecot-1.2.x/

And dovecot-sieve can be found here: http://packages.atrpms.net/dist/el5/dovecot-sieve/

Hi there

I sorted most of it, just needed to restart amasivid and that other one beginning with a! aust somthing or other....


The only problem I face now is I'm unable to send e-mail to hotmail due to the fact that I have a dynamic ip address.

I've tried adding O2's relay - relay.o2broadband.co.uk but it doesn't seem to work as hotmail return the mail.
