    I have try a similar install of Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL + Add Mailfiltering and i don't working maildrop :(

    I'm on SUSE with versions :

    Questions are :

    Is it obligatory to make transport to call maildrop ?
    If yes, we lost advantage of VDA ?

    My bug is :

    #maildrop -d [email protected]
    ERR: authdaemon: s_connect() failed: No such file or directory
    maildrop: Temporary authentication failure.

    #authtest [email protected]
    ERR: authdaemon: s_connect() failed: No such file or directory
    Authentication FAILED: Illegal seek

    Sample of source :
    courier-authlib-0.58/ChangeLog: * authdaemonlib.c (s_connect): Wait for connection to authdaemond
    courier-authlib-0.58/authdaemonlib.c:static int s_connect(int sockfd,
    courier-authlib-0.58/authdaemonlib.c: if (s_connect(s, (const struct sockaddr *)&skun, sizeof(skun),
    courier-authlib-0.58/authdaemonlib.c: perror("ERR: authdaemon: s_connect() failed");

    How try to use successfuly maildrop ?
    I don't understand how courier and maildrop use authlibdaemon...

    Thx Falco, but wrong answer. The good one is :

    # strace authtest [email protected] pass
    >> i see the program using a non existing socket

    # ln -s /var/run/authdaemon.courier-imap/socket /usr/var/spool/authdaemon/socket

    # authtest [email protected] pass
    Authentication succeeded.
