    I followed the steps found here:

    On Ubuntu Edgy.

    I can see SquirrelMail from a browser. When I log in to SquirrelMail my shows a successful login but the browser shows:
    ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.
    Query: SUBSCRIBE "INBOX.Sent"

    So, I telnet into 143, and try a couple things (username = mark):
    a list "Mail" "*"
    a OK LIST completed
    a list "virtual" "*"
    a OK LIST completed
    a list "mark" "*"
    a OK LIST completed
    a create inbox
    a NO INBOX already exists!
    a list "inbox" "*"
    * LIST (\HasNoChildren) "." "INBOX.Sent"
    a OK LIST completed
    a create INBOX.Trash
    a OK "INBOX.Trash" created.
    a list "inbox" "*"
    * LIST (\HasNoChildren) "." "INBOX.Trash"
    * LIST (\HasNoChildren) "." "INBOX.Sent"
    a OK LIST completed
    a create INBOX.Drafts
    a OK "INBOX.Drafts" created.
    a subscribe INBOX.Sent
    * BYE [ALERT] Fatal error: No such file or directory
    Connection closed by foreign host.

    If I try subscribe INBOX I get the same answer.

    Now... if I go to to browse the mail folder, I get this:
    mark@linux800:/var/mail/virtual/mark$ ls -a
    . .. .Drafts .Sent .Trash

    I created the 'mark' folder in virtual, and assigned virtual as the group and owner.

    Now... the HowTo said something about things running chrooted, and this could cause a problem with Debian based distros (Ubuntu is Debian based). Could this be the problem, that Courier can't do what it needs with file/folder access?

    I've also tried Evolution to connect, but I'm assuming that if I can't subscribe via telnet, no other client can either. But I did also try Evolution using POP, and that failed.

    Please help.
