Dovecot+Squirrelmail Problem - Login fail

Post by pedro » 2005/03/14 23:03:55

Hi!

I'm running CentOS 4.0 Final (fully upgraded) with Dag yum repo.

I installed dovecot and squirrelmail. Dovecot is working, using only imap and imaps. I can acess dovecot through imaps with Thunderbird. I configured Squirrelmail to use dovecot using instructions on Squirrelmail's website. When I try to login (using the same accounts on Thunderbird), Squirrelmail reports that the user is unkown or wrong password.

/var/log/dovecot.log
imap-login: Mar 14 22:12:49 Info: Disconnected [::ffff:127.0.0.1]
imap-login: Mar 14 22:12:49 Info: Disconnected [::ffff:127.0.0.1]
imap-login: Mar 14 22:12:49 Info: Disconnected [::ffff:127.0.0.1]
imap-login: Mar 14 22:12:49 Info: Disconnected [::ffff:127.0.0.1]

(one line for each unsucessful login attempt on Squirrelmail)

I used to have this setup on Fedora Core 2, and it worked right way.

Any tips, ideas ?

Thankx in advance.

I've just installed today the same config : CentOS 4 + Dovecot + Squirrelmail .... but it works for me without any problems ....
Have you installed Squirrelmail manually (i mean download from squirrelmail website and installed it) ?
Or did you have used the package provided with centOS ? (i have configured it manually ...)

Hi arrfab!

Thankx for the tip. I installed dovecot and squirrelmail using centos 4 packages. But you gave me some ideas.

I started by,

yum removing squirrelmail
yum install squirrelmail
perl /usr/share/squirrelmail/config/conf.pl (minimum config for dovecot)
service httpd restart
try to login on squirrelmail through browser... not working.
yum remove dovecot
yum install dovecot
nano -w /etc/dovecot.conf (minimum config for imap and imaps)
service dovecot start
try to login on squirrelmail throught browser, SUCESS!

I guess I changed/messed up dovecot.conf upon installing CentOS. No blame on squirrelmail.

Thankx again for the tip.
