    POP3 login format.

    I'm using Webmin and Dovecot IMAP/POP3 Server.

    Let's say I have a virtual server mydomain.com owned by abc user. I add a new user to this server: contact ([email protected]). POP3 login for this user would be contact-abc. How do I change it to [email protected]?

    Depends on your auth method. Check the auth default section of dovecot.conf.

    I use a custom passwd-file which has both user and passwd information contained (quite separate from the system's passwd files). The format is documented on the Dovecot site and/or wiki. I don't use PLAIN but as an example the file (which is generated from our custom control panel) has the following format:
    Code:
    [email protected]:{PLAIN}yabbadabbad00:1200:1200::/home/vmail/domains/bar.com/mw/:/bin/false::
    If you are using ldap or pam or some other method you'll need to consult the docs on that.
    “Even those who arrange and design shrubberies are under
    considerable economic stress at this period in history.”
