Help wiht Postfix and dovecot
I hope you can give me a hand on this. I am trying to learn about linux. I want to setup a simple solution with postfix and dovecot, eg using text files for users and passwords. I want to do this with virtual users and virtual domains. For now i am on setting up a mail server. I have postfix running and i am able to send emails. My next step is dovecot. I thought i had it all but when trying to login it fails to authenticate.
in the message log i have this entry.
dovecot: Oct 26 19:22:45 Info: auth(default): passwd-file(email@example.com,::ffff:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx): no passwd file: username_format=user /var/mail/vhosts/domain.com/shadow
I have a hard time to understand the relationship between userdb, passdb and shadow if someone could direct me to an article or maybe recommend a book i would be greatful
Thanks in advance
