    ...my next problem - now with saslauthd...

    Okay - I´d install ISPC perfectly and it works. Only one problem I have - and that begins at the perfect Setup: :(

    Until I do the The Perfect Setup - Debian Sarge (3.1)

    Everytime I write:
    I´ll get following Errornotice:
    Here some info´s of the telnet localhost 25:
    250-SIZE 10240000
    250 8BITMIME
    I try some of the hints here in forum, but nothing helps. And without saslauthd I can´t login via Webmail. Everytime I get the message, that the Mail-Server is down and I should try it in some minutes again.

    If someone need more info´s to help me - please tell me.

    Iam having the same problem.

    The reason for sasl not starting is that its allready running, i think.

    ps aux | grep sasl
    If so, then kill them and start again.

    If the solution r12dk posted does not work, replace /etc/init.d/saslauthd with a copy of the script that you copied and pasted to your server to make sure that everything is correct.

    Thank you.

    saslauthd now works. And I can start saslauthd.

    But I can´t send eMails / can´t login in any Mail-User-Accounts anymore.
    When I send me a mail from another webaccount (like yahoo, web.de, and so on) it´s in the /var/mail/ in the correct directory - but I can´t load it with UebiMiau or any other mailprogram.

    Also the "welcome-Mail" for new users and new resellers doesn't work. It doesn´t send anything.

    What's the output of
    netstat -tap
    ? What's in the mail log?

    The output is:
    Which mail-Log do you mean ?
    - mail.err
    - mail.info
    - mail.log
    - mail.warn

    You're using Courier which uses the Maildir format to store emails. You said before that emails arrive in /var/mail which means you didn't enable Maildir under Management -> Server -> Settings -> Email. Please do that now.

    Thank you - Now I can login via UebiMiau and use the eMail-accounts this way.

    I installed the couriertcpd after many other times of try and error. And after the installation of it I forget to change the settings. It was my own mistake :rolleyes:

    My last problem (I hope) are the "welcome-Mails".
    When I register a new user or reseller the welcome-mail are not transmitted.
    I don´t know if this is a problem by ISPC or a misconfiguration by myself. :(
