Thanks for replying jnsc
Ok.. I have reinstall all the packages all over again (postfix imap-ssl etc)
I have rechecked all the perfect setup options.
And I noticed that SquirrelMail config has a imap Auth optins and changed it to PLAIN which was confusing to me cause I thought plain was plain text ???
SquirrelMail Config for IMAP Settings
4. IMAP Server : localhost
5. IMAP Port : 143
6. Authentication type : plain
7. Secure IMAP (TLS) : 0
8. Server software : uw
9. Delimiter : /
B. Update SMTP Settings : localhost:25
H. Hide IMAP Server Settings
R Return to Main Menu
C Turn color off
S Save data
Command >> 6
If you have already set the hostname and port number, I can try to
detect the mechanisms your IMAP server supports.
I will try to detect CRAM-MD5 and DIGEST-MD5 support. I can't test
for "login" or "plain" without knowing a username and password.
Auto-detecting is optional - you can safely say "n" here.
Try to detect supported mechanisms? [y/N]:
What authentication mechanism do you want to use for IMAP connections?
login - Plaintext. If you can do better, you probably should.
plain - SASL PLAIN. If you need this, you already know it.
cram-md5 - Slightly better than plaintext methods.
digest-md5 - Privacy protection - better than cram-md5.
*** YOUR IMAP SERVER MUST SUPPORT THE MECHANISM YOU CHOOSE HERE ***
If you don't understand or are unsure, you probably want "login"
login, plain, cram-md5, or digest-md5 [plain]: plain
Now I can try and login but Squirrelmail keeps saying I have wrong username or password. Yet, I have set up the username.
I am checking /etc/postfix/aliases now.
