    I always got the erros "Unknown user or password incorrect." when tried to log into Squirrel webmail.

    and in /var/log/maillog:

    The mysql bindings of postfix are missing. Did you install your server exactly as described in the perfect setup guide? Which install guide did you use to install your server?

    HI till,

    I followed the The Perfect Setup - CentOS 5.0 (32-bit) guide.

    I had Apache and MySQL installed alreadry before I did this guide, anyway I still did step 10 (install MySQL) and got the message says "...all the newset versions of mysql-devel, mysql-server, mysql are already installed... nothing to do..."

    The postfix that is currently running on your server is not the one that was compiled in the tutorial. Please uninstall postfix and then install it again as described in the tutorial.

    Because I followed the "The Perfect Setup - CentOS 5.0 (32-bit)" guide first, then I installed ISPConfig so I have both Courier and Dovecot installed. I changed the mail server to Courier (which was Dovecot before) then I can logged into Squirrel.

    The guide you used was for ispconfig 2 and not 3. the guide is incompatible with ispconfig 3 and thats wy it did not work. Other things like dns will not work too, so you should consider to reinstall your system by using the perfect setup for ispconfig 3 and not the guide for ispconfig 2.

    OMG I haven't known there have been a guide for ISPConfig3, and even haven't thought about it. I'll try it now.

    Thanks for letting me know, till! Very nice moderator!
