    I'am configuring Dovecot to provide both a POP3 and an IMAP service. I'm using Debian Etch 4.03 and Postfix 2.3.

    Restarting mail server: dovecotError: Error in configuration file /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf line 19: Unknown section type


    Here's the section where the log indicates an error:

    passdb sql { #### This is line 19 #####
    args = /etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql.conf
    }

    userdb static {
    args = uid=5000 gid=5000 home=/home/vmail/%d/%n allow_all_users=yes
    }


    Any idea? Why is it labeled as unknown?

    TIA

    It could be that your dovecot is compiled without sql support

    Hi!

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I installed Postfix with MySQL map support:
    $> aptitude install postfix-mysql

    But still getting the error. Any comment?

    Thanks alot.

    The error is with dovecot not postfix
