Question Using Squirrelmail with ISPConfig 3

I wish there were some more instructions on how to use squirrelmail with ISPConfig 3.

After successfully following all the instructions for a Fedora 10 install with ISPConfig 3 and sqirrelmail using IMAP courrier, I'm a bit lost.

The issue: Can't log in to IMAP email accounts using squirrelmail

Symptoms:
1. ISPConfig 3 works fine. It creates email domains, accounts, etc. I have verified that the email accounts are being created for /var/vmail/domain/usr
2. Squirrelmail login screen comes up fine.
3. Squirrelmail configtest.php produces no errors:
Quote:
SquirrelMail configtest

This script will try to check some aspects of your SquirrelMail configuration and point you to errors whereever it can find them. You need to go run conf.pl in the config/ directory first before you run this script.
SquirrelMail version: 1.4.17-4.fc10
Config file version: 1.4.0
Config file last modified: 01 May 2009 06:19:13
Checking PHP configuration...
PHP version 5.2.6 OK.
display_errors:
error_reporting: 6143
variables_order OK: EGPCS.
PHP extensions OK. Dynamic loading is enabled.
Checking paths...
Data dir OK.
Attachment dir OK.
Plugins OK.
Themes OK.
Default language OK.
Base URL detected as: http://mydomain/webmail/src (location base autodetected)
Checking outgoing mail service....
sendmail OK
Checking IMAP service....
IMAP server ready (* OK Dovecot ready.)
Capabilities: * CAPABILITY IMAP4rev1 SASL-IR SORT THREAD=REFERENCES MULTIAPPEND UNSELECT LITERAL+ IDLE CHILDREN NAMESPACE LOGIN-REFERRALS UIDPLUS LIST-EXTENDED I18NLEVEL=1 STARTTLS AUTH=PLAIN
Checking internationalization (i18n) settings...
gettext - Gettext functions are available. On some systems you must have appropriate system locales compiled.
mbstring - Mbstring functions are available.
recode - Recode functions are unavailable.
iconv - Iconv functions are available.
timezone - Webmail users can change their time zone settings.
Checking database functions...
not using database functionality.

Congratulations, your SquirrelMail setup looks fine to me!
Squirrelmail complains about the login stating:

"Unknown user or password incorrect."

I've tried both username and username@domain but I can't log in !

Weird!

Thanks for any help or ideas!

similar problem here, but I am unsure what user to use for logging in, is it the client? I guess client is only for logging into ispcfg3 itsself. which would be the username used to log into squirrelmail or any other email account?

Default Using squirrelmail with ISPConfig 3 logging in issues

Seems like it should be the username or username@domainname that is created in ISPConfig for the new IMAP account ...

In ISPConfig 3, the username is the email address, there is no separate username anymore.

For some reason that does not work! Anyone have any ideas?

My configuration is that I rent a server at

myaccount.mywebhostingcompany.net

The A and MX records are at ns1.mywebhostingcompany.net (etc). The MX records do point to the domains / IP addresses that I am configuring for ISPConfig and the courier IMAP server is working. It should work but I don't understand why it does not.

Take a look in the mail log file and post the exact error message that you get there when the login fails.

is there any way for an email user to change his password? I know in ispcfg2 there was an option. Besides tehre are quite a few squirrelmail plugins to change passwords, does anyone work with ispcfg3, I mean bearing in mind its virtual users now and no longer system users...

I made a plugin for Roundcube webmail for ISPConfig 3. You can find it here http://www.roundcubeforum.net/downlo...nger-0-2-1-19/

Default Updated mail error messages

I repeated all the procedures for "12 Configure Courier" on at the bottom of:
http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...ispconfig-3-p4

I have also done:
# /usr/share/squirrelmail/config/conf.pl
... specifying both courier and dovecot IMAP servers.

Now I am getting the following mail error:
Quote:
May 4 07:41:45 ss0609 dovecot: imap-login: Aborted login (auth failed, 1 attempts): user=<dpicella@theemailaddress.com>, method=PLAIN, rip=127.0.0.1, lip=127.0.0.1, secured
I am going to take a guess and say that this is an courier vs dovecot config issue, but I don't know how to solve it.

Thanks for any help!
