Default pop3d-ssl: Unexpected SSL connection shutdown

Due the update from Sarge to Etch, Postfix has been updated to version 2.3.8.

Since then (sometimes) an error occurs within my /var/log/mail.log which says:

pop3d-ssl: Unexpected SSL connection shutdown

I am not sure why this happens.
When i do a netstat -tap, i can see the line:
tcp6 0 0 *: pop3s *:* LISTEN 2004/couriertcpd

Can anyone put me on the right track to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure what's causing this, but I don't think it has anything to do with Postfix. This seems to be Courier-related.

Falko,

I thought in the same direction.
And the forum thread here: http://www.linode.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1868 seems to confirm that..

You could replace Courier with Dovecot (both use Maildir, so there should be no problem):

Code:
apt-get install Package dovecot-pop3d Package dovecot-imapd

Default Replace Courier by Dovecot | another question to be sure

Falko,

I just want to be sure before i do a test with Dovecot so here are 2 other questions:

1) Before i install imap/pop3 server Dovecot with:

apt-get install dovecot-pop3d dovecot-imapd

do i have to remove Courier first with:

apt-get --purge remove courier-authdaemon courier-base courier-imap courier-imap-ssl courier-pop courier-pop-ssl courier-ssl gamin libgamin0 libglib2.0-0

?

2) Is Dovecot compatible with ISPConfig? I mean within your Perfect howto for Debian Etch, you mention how to setup Courier not Dovecot.

No, that should be done by apt automatically because courier and dovecot are conflicting packages (i.e., they both do the same).

Yes. In the Fedora Perfect Setups I use Dovecot because there's no Courier package, so that should work for Debian as well.

Default Problem with pop after replacing Courier with Dovecot

Falko,

In the mean time i've installed Dovecot on my test-server with: apt-get install dovecot-pop3d dovecot-imapd
The Courier has been removed as well, indeed, so that's ok!

There is only one problem:
Within ISPConfig the pop3-server seems to be down

So, i did an netstat -tap | grep pop and i discovered that pop was not available indeed.
What can be wrong?

Can you check dovecot.conf (I think it's /etc/dovecot.conf) if it's configured to run on the right ports? Maybe there's also a /etc/default/dovecot file that needs to be configured.

Falko, i did not notice that.
It's the first time i start to use Dovecot instead of Courier.
(I'am used to Courier and it starts automaticly).

I start with the configuration of Dovecot now.
Thanks.
