    Question SquirellMail does not accept any login

    Hello,

    I have installed SquirellMail through its rpm file.

    My server name is "space" but SquirellMail does not accept any of usernames existing on this box.

    I have tried below combination with their respective passwords:

    root
    [email protected]
    techi
    [email protected]

    I even added a space.com 192.168.0.1 to "hosts" file which points to this server.

    Then tried it from a windows box with below usernames again:

    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    None of them works.

    Is there any additional configuration or something else I must know?

    Regards and Thanks,
    Techi

    Hi,

    Do you have IMAP or courier IMAP etc... installed?

    What is your installed MTA/MDA?

    Just curious

    Thanks.

    Oh I found reason of that.

    I had not installed any IMAP server

    Now I have installed Courier Imap but this time it accepts login (Does not accept if we eter wrong password) but issues below error:

    Please contact your system administrator and report the following error:
    Fatal error: Maildir: No such file or directory
    Where is this directory? How can I fix this ?

    Regards,
    Techi

    MTA - Mail Transport Agent
    MDA - Mail Delivery Agent

    I think so...

    What did you use? qmail?

    Thanks.

    Sendmail can't support for Maildir format. The following are I copy from part of the content at http://inter7.com/courierimap/

    "Maildir" is a directory-based mail storage format originally introduced in the Qmail mail server, and adopted as an alternative mail storage format by both Exim and Postfix. Courier-IMAP is popular on Qmail/Exim/Postfix sites that are configured to use maildirs. The primary advantage of maildirs is that multiple applications can access the same Maildir simultaneously without requiring any kind of locking whatsoever. It is a faster and more efficient way to store mail. It works particularly well over NFS, which has a long history of locking-related woes.
    Hope this helps!

    Kindest regards,
    Choon
