    ok, so I followed the 'Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (Debian Etch)' Guide.

    I kept getting
    Code:
    Jun 11 17:51:50 orangegum imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
    Jun 11 17:51:50 orangegum imapd: chdir orangegum.gotdns.com/admin/: No such file or directory
    Jun 11 17:53:30 orangegum imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
    Jun 11 17:53:30 orangegum imapd: chdir orangegum.bbnet/admin/: No such file or directory
    I finally fixed it by doing this And now in squirrelmail I get the following after logging in
    Code:
    ERROR: Could not complete request.
    Query: CREATE "INBOX.Sent"
    Reason Given: Cannot create this folder.
    I guess I have to chmod, or add some sort of permissions somewhere. And do I have to create the folders/fix this manually for each created user?

    thanks for any help.

    Normally Maildir is created automatically when the first email for the account arrives, so you don't have to do this manually.

    hmm, I should get the email receiving to work then.


    I sent an email from [email protected] (virtual user) to [email protected] and it worked. But when i try sending an email from root to admin, I get
    Code:
    Failed delivery status
    Reason for failure 	 unknown user: "admin"
    yet I see this in mail.log
    Code:
    courierpop3login: Connection, ip=[::ffff:10.0.0.2]
    courierpop3login: LOGIN, [email protected], ip=[::ffff:10.0.0.2]
    courierpop3login: LOGOUT, [email protected], ip=[::ffff:10.0.0.2], top=0, retr=0, rcvd=12, sent=39, time=0

    Also, is SMTP used for incoming email too? I get this when trying to send an email to my server from gmail
    Code:
    Technical details of temporary failure:
    TEMP_FAILURE: Could not initiate SMTP conversation with any hosts:
    [ohhai.gotdns.com. (10): Connection timed out]
    So if my ISP blocks incoming email, then I have to set it up with SSL or something right?


    thanks.

    You can't have both virtual and system users on the same domain. If you use domain.com for system users, then your virtual users must have another domain.

    well, I tried sending an email from one virtual host to another, but they don't receive it.
    Code:
    Jun 15 13:05:44 orangegum postfix/bounce[28454]: 6B41217471A: sender non-delivery notification: C6E2517471C
    Jun 15 13:05:44 orangegum postfix/qmgr[5016]: 6B41217471A: removed
    Jun 15 13:05:44 orangegum postfix/local[28445]: C6E2517471C: to=<[email protected]>, relay=local, delay=0.42, delays=0.34/0.01/0/0.07, dsn=5.1.1, status=bounced (unknown user: "admin")
    Jun 15 13:05:44 orangegum postfix/qmgr[5016]: C6E2517471C: removed
    
    it say's (unknown user: "admin") but yet I'm logged in as admin in squirrelmail.
    Code:
    Jun 15 13:07:32 orangegum imapd: LOGIN, [email protected], ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1], protocol=IMAP
    Jun 15 13:07:32 orangegum imapd: LOGOUT, [email protected], ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1], headers=0, body=0, rcvd=119, sent=900, time=0

    Can you post the outputs of
    Code:
    grep admin /etc/password
    and
    Code:
    postconf -n
    ?

    Is orangegum.gotdns.com listed in the domains table?

    Ok, the problem is that orangegum.gotdns.com is listed in mydestination and in the domains table. Please read my second post again.
