    Hi All

    I configured the Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (CentOS 5.3 x86_64) and everything seems to be fine but i keep on getting error message when i try to login on squirrelmail.

    ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.

    and in the maillog i got this errors:
    Oct 23 05:32:01 rq3thabangk imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
    Oct 23 05:32:02 rq3thabangk imapd: chdir no-ip.biz/sales/: No such file or directory

    What may be wrong with the configurations? can somebody help me please.

    Did you send a welcome email to that account? If so, are there any other errors in your mail log?

    Thanks I just did it and it worked fine,but only the sales@no-ip.biz can only login but other users can't login:

    error message is : ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.
    I did this: mailx thabangk@no-ip.biz

    and still got the same error. In my forwading table under source i got no records didn't know which info to fill and under destination i did thabangk@no-ip.biz.

    Your server's trying to deliver the mail to mail.no-ip.biz instead of locally, that's why Maildir hasn't been created yet.

    Thanks that's what I'm thinking and how can i change the hostname for the machine and so that the other packages that are already installed can recognise the new hostname?

    You can change the hostname in /etc/postfix/main.cf.
