    i have now tried the other tutorial for setting up a mailserver on ubuntu - the Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft) howto.

    all the test seem ok and apache, mysql phpmyadmin all work... but for some reason when i try and set up an account in evolution it doesn't accept my password.
    anyone have an idea why?

    :confused:

    Code:
    Oct 10 22:30:10 mail courierpop3login: Connection, ip=[::ffff:83.109.131.39]
    Oct 10 22:30:10 mail courierpop3login: LOGIN FAILED, [email protected], ip=[::ffff:83.109.131.39]
    Oct 10 22:30:15 mail courierpop3login: LOGOUT, ip=[::ffff:83.109.131.39]
    Oct 10 22:30:15 mail courierpop3login: Disconnected, ip=[::ffff:83.109.131.39]
    Oct 10 22:30:28 mail courierpop3login: Connection, ip=[::ffff:83.109.131.39]
    Oct 10 22:30:28 mail courierpop3login: LOGIN FAILED, user=morgan, ip=[::ffff:83.109.131.39]
    Oct 10 22:30:33 mail courierpop3login: LOGOUT, ip=[::ffff:83.109.131.39]
    Oct 10 22:30:33 mail courierpop3login: Disconnected, ip=[::ffff:83.109.131.39]
    
    As you can see, problem is probably here. I suppose that you send password in plain text and pop3 expects encrypted...

    try from console
    Code:
    #telnet localhost 110
    user [email protected]
    pass your_pass
    
    If you receive an error try to crypt pass and then send it crypt form...

    Read howto again and find place with login option...

    this is what i got:
    Code:
    [email protected]:/# telnet localhost 110
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.localdomain.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    +OK Hello there.
    user [email protected]
    +OK Password required.
    pass demiurgen
    +OK logged in.

    Doesn't Evolution have a test to check what is offered by the mailserver?
    Kontact/KMail has it... it will show whether TLS/SSL or not... plain or (what was the other again?)...

    problem solved!

    when i use ssl instead of tls in evolution it works on both imap and pop.

    Thanx everyone!

    I also use SSL for sending and TLS for receiving (or vice-versa)... no clue why I can't use TLS for both...
