    Hy everyone.

    I have a question. If i don't want to use quota in postfix (becuse only i use my server and i don't need no quota), can i simply skip the point that describes how to apply quota patch to postfix and quota exceedance notifications?

    Thankyou, Bye,
    Drejc

    I think so. You might also have to modify the Postfix configuration files.
    On the other hand, it doesn't really hurt if your Postfix supports quota. ;)

    Hy.

    Well, I set up everything that is described in Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (+ SMTP-AUTH, Quota, SpamAssassin, ClamAV) howto.
    And everything works great, except one thing:
    I can't connect to my mailserver with for example mozilla thunderbird mail client from any another computer. It says that password is wrong, and even courierpop3login says:
    Jan 6 22:10:07 lintvern courierpop3login: LOGIN FAILED, ip=[::ffff:193.77.177.132]

    But I have the right password, I am pretty sure about that.

    Is there anything else I should enable?

    Regards, Drejc

    Even if I start:
    # telnet localhost 110
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.com.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    +OK Hello there.
    user ruskicar
    +OK Password required.
    pass ######

    It says Login Failed
    But I can check mail with mutt and there is no problem.

    What if I install Qpopper?
    Will everything work all-right then?

    Regards, RuskiCar

    Please check the format of /etc/courier/authmysqlrc (spaces, tabs, etc.). Courier is very finicky about the format.

    Don't install Qpopper! :eek: It won't work!

    Hy.

    I have done the check of authmysqlrc, and everything is ok (no spaces or brackets). I've restarted all /etc/init.d/courier* and postfix, but still pop3 login doesn't work.

    Is it ok, that MYSQL_SERVER in localhost, or should it be sth. else? What about ownership of authmysqlrc and authdaemonrc? I have them set to daemon:daemon. Is this ok?

    Is there anything else to check or replace?

    Hope to hearing from you soon,
    RuskiCar

    Is there anything else than
    in the mail log?
    Are you sure you're using the correct username (must be an email address) and password?
    Did you follow the tutorial to the letter? Maybe you made a typo somewhere?

    OHMYGOD :)

    Sorry...I've completely forgot to use login username as [email protected] :)

    But now my syslog says:
    Jan 7 11:54:57 lintvern courierpop3login: Connection, ip=[::ffff:193.77.17.199]
    Jan 7 11:54:57 lintvern courierpop3login: chdir "home/vmail": No such file or directory

    Anyway, I have another question. What if someone sends e-mail to root or some other users from /etc/aliases. Should I put all users from /etc/aliases to forwardings table?

    Bye

    falko Super Moderator ISPConfig Developer

    I guess you didn't follow the tutorial to the letter because on http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual_postfix_mysql_quota_courier_p2 it says:

    Code:
    groupadd -g 5000 vmail
    useradd -g vmail -u 5000 vmail -d /home/vmail -m
    which means /home/vmail is created if it doesn't exist.

    No, don't put real system users into the database!
    If someone sends mails to users from /etc/aliases, these mails will get delivered as described in /etc/aliases. Postfix can distinguish between system users and virtual users.

    I've even tried to send e-mail from telnet:
    telnet localhost 25
    ehlo localhost
    250-lintvern.net
    250-PIPELINING
    250-SIZE 10240000
    250-VRFY
    250-ETRN
    250-STARTTLS

    250-AUTH=LOGIN PLAIN
    250 8BITMIME
    mail from:<[email protected]>

    250 Ok

    354 End data with <CR><LF>.<CR><LF>
    Testing blabla.
    .
    250 Ok: queued as 5BC8A2EB7D
    quit
    221 Bye

    And /var/log/mail.log says:

    I followed the instructions and there is /home/vmail directory on my server! I don't know why courier doesn't find it.

    But there are some real system users on my server, for example myself (ruskicar = postmaster). And postfix says there is no user ruskicar in virtual table...so I don't get any mail in mutt (as i was used to before).

    Does /etc/courier/authmysqlrc look like this?

    Code:
    MYSQL_SERVER localhost
    MYSQL_USERNAME mail_admin
    MYSQL_PASSWORD mail_admin_password
    MYSQL_PORT 0
    MYSQL_DATABASE mail
    MYSQL_USER_TABLE users

    MYSQL_UID_FIELD 5000
    MYSQL_GID_FIELD 5000
    MYSQL_LOGIN_FIELD email
    MYSQL_HOME_FIELD "/home/vmail"
    MYSQL_MAILDIR_FIELD CONCAT(SUBSTRING_INDEX(email,'@',-1),'/',SUBSTRING_INDEX(email,'@',1),'/')
    #MYSQL_NAME_FIELD
    MYSQL_QUOTA_FIELD quota
    Please post the output of
    Code:
    ls -la /home
    Also post the output of
    Code:

    Yes, /etc/courier/authmysqlrc looks like that (only that I have some lines that are originally in /etc/courier/authmysqlrc and are all commented)

    Please make sure that you dont have any whitespaces behind the values in /etc/courier/authmysqlrc and the other courier files. Courier does not strip whitespaces that where behind any value.

    Please try to use the file from the tutorial, without any other lines/comments. Maybe that makes a difference.

    What's in /etc/hosts?

    Hy.

    Great! I've really tried to use the same file /etc/courier/authmysqlrc from tutorials, and now user jammz (which is in virtual table) can log in the system. How strange... Thanks.

    But I still have the problem with real system users. If I want to send mail to ruskicar, I still get the message:

    Code:

    Here is my /etc/hosts:
    Code:

    Is lintvern.net a domain that you manage in the Postfix MySQL database? Then you have to create a new virtual user for [email protected] to be able to accept emails for that address.
