    Hello all,

    i have used this guide:
    http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-centos-6.4-x86_64-nginx-dovecot-ispconfig-3-p5

    My system:
    Linux vp7041.blow.de 2.6.18-028stab101.1 #1 SMP Sun Jun 24 19:50:48 MSD 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    I have added a mailbox over ISPConfig but i can`t get it into my Thunderbird.

    If i scan my server i see the ports are open:
    ----------------------
    Not shown: 88 closed ports
    PORT STATE SERVICE
    21/tcp open ftp
    22/tcp open ssh
    25/tcp open smtp
    53/tcp open domain
    80/tcp open http
    110/tcp open pop3
    143/tcp open imap
    993/tcp open imaps
    995/tcp open pop3s
    3306/tcp open mysql
    8080/tcp open http-proxy
    8081/tcp open blackice-icecap
    ----------------------

    If i look in the log from the Mail i see this:

    Seems as if ispconfig is not fully installed or some steps of the guide have not been executed as the dovecot-swl.conf file is missing on your server.

    Download the ispconfig tar.gz again and run the update.php script which is inside the install folder, choose to reconfigure services during update.
