    Okay, so I have ISPConfig installed as per this tutorial:

    And I was able to get past a libxml2 issue thanks to these forums :) , however now I've run into something else when I attempt to log into the mail server.

    First I was trying to set up UebiMiau Webmail and was continually told no matter what I put into the login field that my username/password was incorrect. So I checked out the syslog but it wasn't giving me much of anything useful:

    Nov 23 12:44:42 server2 courierpop3login: Connection, ip=[::ffff:]
    Nov 23 12:44:42 server2 courierpop3login: LOGIN FAILED, [email protected], ip=[::ffff:]
    Nov 23 12:44:47 server2 courierpop3login: Disconnected, ip=[::ffff:]
    (NOTE: I was logging in using "[email protected]")

    So I tried logging in via Thunderbird but I recieved this error:

    Mail server responded:  chdir Maildir failed
    Okay, so now I know a little more, but now what? Why is it looking for a Maildir if everything's stored in a database? Any ideas would be appreciated.

    You use the wrong username, the username is web1_kmeyer and not [email protected].

    Mail is not stored in a database, it is stored in a Maildir.

    Okay, so from what you're telling me it sounds like something's not configured right; I need to figure out what I need to change so that ISPConfig will make the necessary Maildir's needed. Then I need to figure out why it's translating "[email protected]" as "[email protected]"; I've tried logging in as "web1_kmeyer" and I get the exact same error in syslog (that's how it's set up in thunderbird). :confused:

    I'll start looking through everything again.

    The maildirs are created automatically by postfix and not ISPConfig when the first email is sent to the account.
