    I think my fault was a "yum install upgrade" one week ago... :(
    I know ISP config 3 isn't compatible with dovecot 2..
    Is this the problem?
    How can I solve the problem?
    Thanks in advantage

    ISPConfig 3.0.3.3, I used The perfect Server Fedora 14 ISPConfig 3 tutorial

    Hi Falko,
    I downgraded dovecot to 1.2 but I cannot use the mail server yet.
    This is the actual log from ispconfig:

    To downgrade, I used the step #11 of your howto http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-fedora-14-x86_64-ispconfig-3-p4

    What do you think? Could you help me please?
    Thanks in advantage

    Make sure that you rerun the ispconfig update and choose to reconfigure services after you downgraded dovecot.

    Sorry for bringing this back from the dead, but I'm having the same problem. How do I force ispconfig_update to reconfigure services? Since I'm on the latest version, it says it's already updated.

    Download the ispconfig tar.gz from ispconfig.org website, unpack it and then run the update.php script which is in the install folder.

    I did this, and now I can log in, but only after I reset the password on the mailboxes. Also, all the mailboxes I've tried so far are empty. Any idea why?

    EDIT: I noticed on the mailbox folders I log in, there is a new Maildir folder with cur, new and tmp which are empty. The ones I haven't logged in (or change the password) do not have the Maildir folder, just cur, new and tmp. How do I change this so that the emails don't go into this new Maildir folder and the users can see their old emails?

    Are there any errors in your mail log (in the /var/log/ directory)?
