    I am using ISPConfig 3 on centos.

    My email users are able to login to Dovecot/postfix without any problem.

    But it leaves an entry in /var/log/secure file

    2011-02-01T12:48:13.612817+05:18 linode dovecot-auth: pam_unix(dovecot:auth): check pass; user unknown
    2011-02-01T12:48:13.612903+05:18 linode dovecot-auth: pam_unix(dovecot:auth): authentication failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=dovecot ruser=[email protected] rhost=

    What can be the reason?

    IS this a valid user?

    Yes, real user for a domain. The webmail,outlook login works fine, but it leaves an error entry in secure log.

    I think we have multiple login validations in dovecot.conf in ISPConfig 3..

    Is that correct?
