    Hi folks,

    I'm suffering big probs with a fresh Ubuntu 6.06 Perf. Setup+IspC.

    Setup is out of the box ISPConfig-2.2.21:

    Now I have no problem with about 13 email accounts!
    But three are just not able to retrieve emails: web1p9, web1p12 and web1p13.

    There also seems something strange about trying telnet
    Code:
    telnet localhost 25
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 my.server.net ESMTP Postfix (Ubuntu)
    then my ssh connection freezes and I need to start a new session…

    I've also sent mails to all the new accounts and the maildirs are there…

    I just don't get it from here — any help here?

    Thanks very much

    Cheers

    This is normal - it's waiting for input from you, something like
    Code:
    quit
    or
    Code:
    ehlo localhost
    ...

    Are you using the correct username in your email client? web1p9 doesn't seem to be correct - ISPConfig uses underscores, so maybe the correct username is web1_p9?

    Thanks Falko

    With the telnet… no it just wouldn't take any more commands… or, maybe I was a bit too impatient
    But since being unaware of the "mail statistics function", I had added an "always_bcc" in postfix as it's just our company on the server and we do our mail backup that way.
    Well you of course you know what happened during that period ;-)
    Thanks again for this post http://howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18429
    So I solved this trouble as soon as I saw the Load being very, very high ;-)

    And web1p9 is also fine, I set the the prefix that way due to migration from a confixx.

    Now, with the the other two accounts it's very wild I have to say…
    The web1p12 and web1p13 were valid accounts on the confixx sys for a long time. So I kept the same PW on the ISPConfig, to keep things consistent, but in in the head office they failed to work now. Inserting the "old" PW on both sides over and over didn't help either, only when decided to choose new PWs those two accounts would work all of a sudden — and yes, me and another Admin checked the PWs thoroughly…

    Is there anything I've missed regarding length, characters etc. of a password??

    Coming from a SuSE/Confixx it seems a long way to Ubuntu/ISPConfig, anyway.
    Maybe I'll put my notes in order and post it here later… right now I'm trying to get my head around on how the logrotation ist done and why it's done that way…

    Cheers

    You may use any characters in email passwords that are allowed on linux systems.

    Just leave it alone, it works. Thats the difference between ubuntu and openSuSE ;)
