    Hi,

    I have a couple of problems encountered after installation hope you can help me.

    Errors are as follows:

    1. Logging in to Squirrelmail says:

    Logging in failed

    2. Host or domain name not found error.

    This worked for me

    I'm noob (and bit lazy) and that's why i crawl trougth guides.

    I had similar problem and my problem was solved when i checked all files i needed to edit when following that guide.

    There i found that i did too much copy - paste and forgot to change few 'mail_admin_password' to actual password.

    Maybe this is worth to check ?

    Hi,

    I already made a recheck on everything but I can't see where I missed.

    root@mx-1:~# find /home/vmail/
    /home/vmail/
    /home/vmail/.bash_logout
    /home/vmail/.profile
    /home/vmail/.bashrc

    Sending the user doesn't create directories either.

    Please create an A record for mx-1.domain.com.

    It should not need server name to mail address.
    ... at least mine is working fine without that.

    i assume that you done:
    mailx cherry@domain.com

    if you put something into transports or forwardings tables remove those entrys and try again.

    ... and other modifications also, so you have plain setup.

    I have been through the how-to twice and have the same error from Squirrelmail. And with the same mutt command it rejects my password with "temporary problem. please try again later" and "Login Failed."

    EDIT. Falko...In the how-to you do not say to activate SpamAssassin. Should I also edit /etc/default/spamassassin and change ENABLED=no to ENABLED=yes? then start it?

    Also I found that there is no mailbox under /home/vmail, though there is one under /home/administrator and /home/'username' and also under /root

    Same here. I redo everything but same results. Cannot login via Squirrelmail. :(

    No, that's not necessary as amavisd calls the normal spamassassin binary, not the daemon.

    What's in your mail log now?

    IF the mailboxes are not created within /home/vmail, then there's something fundamentally wrong with your system...

    Ok thanks for the intel on spamassassin. The how-to was unclear at that point. I knew the amavisd called Spamassassin but was unsure if it needed to be activated itself.

    And yeah there must be something fundamentally wrong with my install. Something I did wrong twice. The First time, a fresh install, I typed out all the commands and edits. But I got the error. Being mildly dyslexic, I am ubber dependent on spell checkers and could very well have made an typing error. So the Second time I Copy/Pasted all your commands and edits (also a fresh install) But got the same issue.

    SO. I rebooted and when the system came up I attempted to log into Squirrelmail from my desktop and got the error "ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server." And when I mutt as either admin or user I get the error ""temporary problem. please try again later" and "Login Failed." Below is the relevant portion of the mail.log file from reboot to attempting to access squirrelmail.

    You're using the wrong username and/or password in /etc/courier/authmysqlrc.

    I am afraid you have lost me. I have read over the how-to again and every thing seems to be they way it should be. Did you leave something out? Something obvious? Something you may have expected the reader to already know? A common problem with many how-to's. Reality is most readers are NOT as smart as the author otherwise we would not be using a how-to.

    This system is not critical. There are time constraints. I need a working mail server fairly soon.

    As to the passwords. Right now, because I am the only user and I am testing there is only one. sql root, mail_admin, system admin account, my personal user account...All have the same password.

    So no I did not use the wrong password.

    Now I went through the sql database and found that the mail_admin had no privileges even though it should have had so I gave it SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE using Webmin. I can login to phpmyadmin using mail_admin and the password. No Problem there so I am not sure what you want me to do with /etc/courier/authmysqlrc

    EDIT>> Reading through the posts I saw that one of the posters who had the same problem found that he had "and forgot[en] to change few 'mail_admin_password' to actual password." Am I to understand that I am to put the Actual Password in a bunch of plain text files? >>>> Further reading....I get it now...The files are not readable. NOW I feel like a dumb ass.

    They say the third time is the Charm. I will let you know how it goes.

    Ok. Everything seems A-Okay now. But I am having trouble with pop clients (Evolution and Thunderbird) Everytime I try to send my password is rejected. I will search to seeif there is a thread on this issue. Unless someone here has a ready answer at hand on the proper way to set up pop clients.

    What's the exact error message from the mail log?
     
  14. metal1633

    metal1633 New Member

    Thanks for taking the time to do this. If you are half as busy as I am you have no time. I created the account in Evolution, accepted the Certificates and can receive without issue. When I send, as I said, it refuses to authenticate me. Here is the relevant portion of the log. I tried several times with different setting in the client account preferences dialog.

    What's in your main.cf and /etc/pam.d/smtpd? Did you disable AppArmor?

    Apparmor is disabled and purged. It was an error in the /etc/pam.d/smtp file. That file is also readable by other users and I do not like that. By changing its permissions, making it readable to only 'owner' and 'group' will I break the system?

    Ohh and its 'owner' is 'root' and its 'group' is also 'root'.

    Is the Courier authdaemon running?

    How can I check if the Courier authdaemon is running ?

    I am quite new at this and appreciate the efforts you are making towards helping me.

    On a sidenote which book would you recommend to help me understand Ubuntu Server ? I need the book to have a chapter or two on mail setup.

    Thanks
