Default Strange Error with UebiMiau.

Hi there,

I have the wierdest error with UebiMiau. See below.

1. If there are no emails in the inbox I cannot send out email. (mail.log does not have any relivant entries...it just says login and logout for the same time)

2. If I have an email in the inbox I can reply to it and it goes through.
3. If I have an email in my inbox and i CREATE a new message it goes through.

If I use an external email program configured for IMAP (I use Windows Live Mail) everything works regardless.

I look forward for your help.

Regards,

Dominic

Probably you need to enable the Maildir format in ISPConfig.

Hi there,

I should have said that this is a Ubuntu 8.04 built with the perfect server script so the maildir option is ticked.

Cheers.

Does this happen only for new accoutns that have never before received any emails, or only for older accounts that have received emails, but whose mailbox is currently empty?

If it's only for new accounts, then I guess it's because the Maildir wasn't created. The Maildir is created automatically when the first email arrives, so sending an email to that account should fix the problem.

Hi Falko

Yes it is the first time I have set up email to go to the ISPCONFIG box (previously our SME 7.3 box which we are phasing out).

However once I have an email in the Inbox UebiMiau sends ok. Under all circumstances it receives ok. The sending problem is only with UebiMiau. When I connect to the box via IMAP everything works fine.

So no problems sending and receiving mail only sending mail via UebiMiau.

An easy fix it to use squirrel mail?

Also I will recheck the problem...I upgraded from 2.2.4 to 2.2.6 last night.

Thanks for your help.

Dom

The latest version is 2.2.26.

So the problem does not occur if you first send an email to a new account and then try to log in?

Hi there. Whoops yes I have the latest...and yes it does not occur if I email the account first. But as soon as I delete that email and there is nothing in the inbox it is back.

Regards.

Can you go to the home directory of one of the affected users and post the output of
Code:
ls -la
?
