I'm running postfix first loaded using the perfect server squeeze ispconf 3 howto. But I reinstalled postfix ... using the Virtual Users & Domains with Postfix, Courier, MySQL howto (sorry I wanted to edit the user ... tables directly). Also, sorry I used non encrypted passwords in mysql. I changed everything I could find in the howto to not CRYPT anything. Mail is coming into the appropriate directories fine. Mailx postmaster@... forwards to my private pacbell account fine. Hoever, we can't log into Pop3. The mail.log is listed below. Oct 9 16:50:07 webmail pop3d: Connection, ip=[::ffff:10.1.0.208] Oct 9 16:50:07 webmail pop3d: LOGIN FAILED, email@example.com, ip=[::ffff:10.1.0.208] Oct 9 16:50:07 webmail pop3d: authentication error: Input/output error I know this is a nob question and I'm going to get yelled at about the crypt but I'm stuck. I'm replacing a lenny install that had a hard drive directory crash on the home partition and the client now can't email till I fix the new server. Thanks in advance for any help.
