    I followed this tutorial. The only difference is that I used a 2nd level domain e.g.: something.example.com instead of example.com.
    I tested Postfix following the instructions at page 4, and I have created a user with phpmyadmin and sent him a welcome email with mailx. Everything seems to be fine, but when I try to login via squirrelmail I get the following error (unknown user or password incorrect) :

    tail -50 mail.info

    and

    tail -50 mail.log

    show that indeed the login failed:

    Code:
    
    Nov  5 14:59:25 mail imapd: LOGIN FAILED, user=test, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
    Nov  5 14:59:30 mail imapd: LOGOUT, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1], rcvd=39, sent=332
    Nov  5 14:59:39 mail imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
    Nov  5 14:59:39 mail imapd: LOGIN FAILED, user=test, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
    Nov  5 14:59:44 mail imapd: LOGOUT, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1], rcvd=39, sent=332
    Nov  5 15:00:11 mail imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
    Nov  5 15:00:11 mail imapd: LOGIN FAILED, user=test, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
    Nov  5 15:00:16 mail imapd: LOGOUT, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1], rcvd=39, sent=332
    
    
    but they don't explain why that happened.
    Any ideas?


    Edit:
    I found what I was doing wrong. I had to login with username "test@something.example.com" instead of just "test".
