Falko,

First, will setup Dovecot on a test-server. After that i make the decision to make the switch to Dovecot or not. I did not have the time yet to finish it.
Probably it is a simple job, but ia want to read some documentation first.

Default pop3d-ssl: Unexpected SSL connection shutdown

Hi Hans,

I know this is an old thread, but I was having the same problem as you and although Squirrel mail was working when I tried to download the emails using Outlook Express my mail.log was showing :
pop3d-ssl: Unexpected SSL connection shutdown.

So I used the advice Falko gave you and installed Dovecot.
Squirrelmail is not working now.
ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.

Next I uncommented in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf:
listen = *
and added :
mail_location = /home/%u/Maildir

Then mande the foll. changes:
# It's possible to export the authentication interface to other programs:

socket listen {

#master {

# Master socket provides access to userdb information. It's typically

# used to give Dovecot's local delivery agent access to userdb so it

# can find mailbox locations.

#path = /var/run/dovecot/auth-master

#mode = 0600

# Default user/group is the one who started dovecot-auth (root)

#user =

#group =

#}

client {

# The client socket is generally safe to export to everyone. Typical

use

# is to export it to your SMTP server so it can do SMTP AUTH lookups

# using it.

#path = /var/run/dovecot/auth-client

path = /var/spool/postfix/private/auth-client

mode = 0660

user = postfix

group = postfix

}

}

After that, I restarted dovecot.

Now Squirrel mail gives me:
Unknown user or password incorrect.

I thought you might be able to help me as you had the same problem to start with.

Thanks in advance,

Marulu.

I did install Dovecot for i while, but later i used Courier again, because it did not solve the problem.
Now i do not have the problem anymore. I thought it had something to do with an older version of RoundCube webmail, but i'm not sure.
I don't use Squirrelmail, so i can't say anything about that.

Hope you'll find a solution soon.

Default Cannot download emails using Outlook Express

Hi Hans,

Many thanks for your reply.
Even before I received it, I removed dovecot and re-installed courier. And squirrel Mail started working promptly. Actually the tutorial I used showed Squirrel mail working as part of it. But I would like the clients to use Outlook Express or Outlook.

I just got it working... I tried using the whole username@domain.com in OE instead of just username!!

Thanks anyway!

Marulu.
