Default Perfect setup madriva 2007 and Postfix

Have a problem logging in to the Pop3 server through Outlook, and cannot find any emails received through webmail. Maildir is checked in ISPConfig.

An excerpt from the mail log (below) would seem to show that an email was recieved and then removed from the queue? If so, this would explain why I can't find any messages.....

From /var/log/mail/info:

Jan 21 19:58:53 ns3 ipop3d[2098]: pop3 service init from 192.168.1.88

Authentication for SMTP is checked in outlook, so we can send emails without a problem outside. Just can't log on to the Pop3 server to retrieve emails that we cannot find......

Any ideas? Thanks!

Well, found the emails here: /var/www/web1/user/sheltiehosting.com/Maildir/new. Though I'm at a loss as to why Webmail, Squirrelmail, or Outlook can't retrive them........

Please unselect the Maildir checkbox in ISPCOnfig. Your POP3 Daemon does not support maildir.

Thanks for your reply Till.

Maildir is unchecked, and I have restarted Postfix. Outlook is still unable to log in to the pop3 server. Outlook was able to send a test email, and I have verified reciept of that email using webmin, but it does not come up in outlook. Webmail and Squirrelmail also show an empty inbox.

Any thoughts on that?

Please send the mails again. The old ones are now located in Maildir, but your POP3 server requires mbox. Now that Maildir is unchecked in ISPConfig, new mails will be delivered to mbox.

Hi Falko,

Thanks. Located the new files. Any emails recieved are bounced back with the following attached:

The mail system

<sheltiehosting.com@ns3.sheltiehosting.com> (expanded from
<webmaster@sheltiehosting.com>): service unavailable. Command output:
==================== QUOTA: 0 INBOXSIZE: 0 Bouncing (inbox already
full!) /bin/sh: line 2: -oi: command not found

I can imagine there would be a setting somewhere to be changed? There are currently no emails in any mailbox. Where to look?

Do you have quota and quotatools installed?

Hello Till,

Yes. Installed using Perfect Setup Mandriva 2007. Near as I can tell quota is enabled. Quotatools I'm not certain about. Was that part of the Setup? I do not see a package named quotatools.....

Yes. quota-3.13-2mdk.i586.rpm is installed and running.

Turned quotas off, then ran quotacheck, and turned quotas back on (followed Setup again). Sent another email, and it bounced as before. Same message.
