cd /home/vmail/example.com
maildirmake sales


That should do it. Just remember to chown all folders to vmail user.
I have the same problem as this user had. But i do not know what you does mean when u say "chown all forlders to vmail user." What should i write in the terminal as example.com as exapmle.

Best regards.

Try this:
Code:
chown -R vmail /home/vmail

Hmm still got:

ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.

Do I need to restart something before it works?
Perhaps i do need open some ports in my router?

Else, someone know where i can find my logfile?

Best regards

Default Cant login to Squirrel mail

Hi Guys

I really hope someone out there can help me see the wood for the trees. I have not followed these instructions to a t, mainly as im not interested in quotas. the rest is pretty much the same. Either way, hopefully i can provide you with enough info to fix this headache.

This has been getting to me all night, i have reinstalled, -purge removed, removed, installed and eveything else i can imagine and still it never lets me login.

It just wont let me log in via squirell mail. Mail is being dumped in the right directories. I just cant access it. I have full loggin on and what you see below is all I get in my mail log when trying to log in.

I ave read through the entire thread and many other websites and none have a fix, hence my asking on here.

Many thanks in advance.

My mail.log out put when i try and login

Aug 5 23:20:51 xxxxxx imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
Aug 5 23:20:51 xxxxxx imapd: LOGIN FAILED, user=xxxxxx@xxxxxx.xxx, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
Aug 5 23:20:56 xxxxxx imapd: LOGOUT, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1], rcvd=57, sent=332

Did you configure Squirrelmail for the right IMAP/POP3 server?
The logs are in the /var/log directory.

I'm having this problem too.

As well as squirrelmail giving that message, when I try to use pop3 I get this message:
Code:
-ERR chdir mydomain.com/username failed
Connection closed by foreign host
And this in my logs:
Code:
Aug  7 00:28:55 mydomain pop3d: chdir mydomain/username: No such file or directory
The directories are there and has the appropriate permissions.

I seemed to have fixed it, by telling it to use /home/vmail/domain.com/user (I was trying to use a different location).

Don't see how it matters if the permissions were right, but hey if it works I'm happy!

I have now checked the log and it says:

Aug 7 18:09:45 Inleed-S1 imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
Aug 7 18:09:45 Inleed-S1 imapd: authdaemon: s_connect() failed: Connection refused
Aug 7 18:09:45 Inleed-S1 imapd: [Hint: perhaps authdaemond is not running?]
Aug 7 18:09:45 Inleed-S1 imapd: LOGIN FAILED, user=support@inleed.net, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
Aug 7 18:09:45 Inleed-S1 imapd: authentication error: Connection refused
Aug 7 18:09:49 Inleed-S1 postfix/local[31345]: fatal: open /etc/postfix/mysql-aliases.cf: No such file or directory

What should mysql-aliases.cf contain?
