    The last email seems to be delivered fine. Does this email arrive in the Maildir or Mbox file of the user malli ?

    Hey Till,

    Thanks for the response. I do have maildir setup on my server, however, the mail didn't appear in malli's inbox. I have aliases setup for this inbox, admin, administrator, postmaster and webmaster. Is there anything I could check to see if the mail is there?

    Thanks

    Please make sure you have not checked the "Maildir" checkbox in ISPConfig under management > server > settings.

    Please post the output of:

    ls -la /var/spool/mail

    Hey Till,

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction because unchecking maildir fixed the problem. Now mails go and come to the server. However, if I wanted to use maildir, would it be as simple as checking the box again or would I have to run a script to convert the mbox to maildir?

    Below is my output:
    ls -la /var/spool/mail
    total 428
    drwxrwsr-x 2 root mail 4096 Sep 1 08:25 ./

    -rw------- 1 malli mail 6028 Sep 1 08:25 malli

    Thanks,

    You'd have to replace your existing POP3 server with a POP3 server that uses Maildir, like Courier or Dovecot, and you'd have to enable Maildir again in ISPConfig. To convert your mbox mailboxes to Maildir, you 'd have to use a script such as mb2md.

    Hey Falko,

    Thanks for the response. I think Mandriva 2006 is using cyrus as the default imap/pop server which doesn't support mbox. Now, would it be as simple as running the following?
    urpme cyrus
    urpmi courier
    mb2md command to convert mbox to maildir for each users mailbox
    check the option to enable maildir in ISPConfig
    restart ISPConfig

    Thanks,

    Rocky

    If you are laready using cyrus, it is not nescessary to install courier to use ipsconfig with maildir as cyrus supports maildir as well.

    Just do this:

    Hey Till,

    Thanks for the reply, but I still have a few questions. How would I install mb2md on my Mandriva 2006/ISPConfig box and where would I find the mbox file to convert?

    Would it be the files located in var/mail/ or the files located at /var/spoo/mail/?

    There is a Maildir in /var/www/web9/ and also one in /var/www/web9/user/john/.
    Will my destination be /var/www/web9/Maildir/ or /var/www/web9/user/john/Maildir?

    Assuming that the mbox file is under /var/mail/ and the destination is under /var/www/web9/Maildir/, does this syntax look correct?
    mb2md -c -s /var/mail/john -d /var/www/web9/Maildir/john

    Please help me out with this one because I'm confused.

    Thanks,

    Rocky

    IIf there is a mandriva package with the name mb2md, install that, if not, have a look here:

    http://batleth.sapienti-sat.org/projects/mb2md/

    Just download the mb2md script (the lonk is at the end of the page), unpack the tar.gz file and copy the mb2md file to your /usr/bin directory.


    The directories are symlinked, so you can use one of the, e.g. /var/mail/ because its shorter :)

    Use always the directory inside the "user" directory, in this case:

    /var/www/web9/user/john/Maildir

    Try first without the -c option, if this wont work you can try with -c.

    Hey Till,

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I've done what you told me to by first downloading mb2md and placing it in the /usr/bin directory. I then ran the following command:

    I was logged in a root
    sudo -u john mb2md-3.20.pl -s /var/mail/john -d /var/www/web3/user/john/Maildir

    It seemed to have worked because I noticed that it created 3 additional folder in /var/www/web3/user/john/Maildir:
    cur
    new
    tmp

    I then went into ISPConfig manager and check the box to use maildir and restarted ISPConfig. Unfortunately, when I sent a mail from the outside to John's account, it didn't come through. The log said it was delivered though. I then went back into ISPConfig manager and unchecked the box for maildir and restarted ISPConfig. I sent another mail and it came through.

    I was wondering if I had to change all the mailboxes into maildir format before this could work. I have 3 additional mail account in my /var/mail/ folder. They are:
    admispconfig
    mail
    postfix

    Do I have to convert those as well? If so, what would the destination directory be?

    Thanks,

    Rocky

    Which POP3 server do you currently use? I guess it's a POP3 server that uses mbox. What's the output of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    ?

    You are still running a mbox pop3 and imap server over xinetd. Please uninstall your old imap / pop3 server or disable them in your xinetd configuration, then start / install courier or dovecot pop3 and imap.

    Contents of my xinetd.d file:
    cvs
    imap
    imaps
    ipop2
    ipop3
    pop3s
    proftpd-xinetd
    rsync
    sshd-xinetd

    Next step is to remove imap, imaps, ipop2, ipop3 and pop3s from my server Would I use the command urpme imap and so on?

    Then when I tried installing courier, it said:
    [root@linux etc]# urpmi courier
    no package named courier
    The following packages contain courier:
    courier-authdaemond
    courier-authlib-ldap

    If I remove imap, imaps, ipop2, ipop3 and pop3s from my server, would courier become the default and turn on or would I have to turn it on manually?

    What's in those files? There's a setting in them (disable=yes or something like that) that lets you disable these services. Restart xinetd afterwards.
    You don't need to uninstall them when they are disabled in xinetd.

    See
    Code:
    man chkconfig
    to find out how to make Courier start at boot time.

    Hey Falko,

    I've edited the ipop3 file and disabled it by adding disable = yes. I then installed courier-imap, which installed successfully. I start courier by running /etc/init.d/courier-imap start. I went into ISPConfig and changed my Mail server to use maildir. I then tried connected to my email and received the following error when loggin in:

    Warning: fsockopen() [function.fsockopen]: unable to connect to localhost:110 (Connection refused) in /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/webmail/inc/class.uebimiau_mail.php on line 66

    Any suggestions?
