Dovecot is using Maildir as well. Did you use Courier in your previous setup, or Dovecot as well?

I still cannot download any emails from the pop boxes
Do you get any error messages? Does your firewall allow access on port 110?

The previous setup was just Courier as per Perfect Server Opensuse 11.1

My reference to Maildir was to the folder /var/vmail/maildomain/user/Maildir

Also, I can download mail if the passwords are sent in the clear. It's just SSL/TLS that is failing.

Yippee! I've fixed it.

The thread title has become a little missleading because the problem refered on the old server. When that was found to have bad sectors on the disk I hurriedly brought into service a new machine that I was in the process of configuring.

Anyway, the problem was the Dovecot config. It seems there are some discrepencies in the documentation. SSL/TLS is not enabled by default and the security certificate is not included in the rpm, at least not the one available from openSUSE. So the fix was to comment out, or change to "yes", the following line in SSL SETTINGS section of /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf.
Code:
ssl = no
If the certificate is not present there will be an error message when you restart Dovecot.

There is a wiki to create the certificate at
