General :: Failed To Start Dovecot POP3/IMAP Server?

May 13, 2011

i have some problems to start my dovecot server. I tried to install it from webmin using "un-used modules" but it was allways the same error: "E: Unable to locate package dovecot-pop3d".When I tried to install it from console using the commands: apt-get install dovecot-imapd dovecot-pop3d dovecot-common - and there are no problems with dovecot-imapd and dovecot-common, but still the same error with dovecot-pop3d. After command: service dovecot status: could not access PID file for dovecot ... failed!
After try to start dovecot with comand "dovecot": Error: mail_executable: Can't use /usr/lib/dovecot/pop3: No such file or directoryFatal: Invalid configuration in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.confI've read a few similar threads in this forum about dovecot errors but still can't to fix it.

General :: Setup A Functioning Imap And Pop3 Mail Server Using Dovecot-postfix?

May 4, 2010

I'm somewhat familiar with Linux and became pretty decent at installing and configuring packages in Ubuntu. One of the things I was able to do with my tinkering was set up a functioning imap and pop3 mail server using dovecot-postfix. Now I'm experimenting with Slackware to get the feel of another distro, and I noticed that the mail server packages were already installed. On my client computer they can pick up that I have users configured and my mx record is working.

However it is failing to send mail saying that it is failing to relay the e-mail message and that the server responded 5.7.1 which was a problem that I was having in Ubuntu when first configuring the mail server. The fix was to edit the postfix.conf file and adding the localhost name of my server. Does anybody know of the file that I need to edit to make it possible to relay my messages with both pop3 and imap.

Server :: Dovecot Failed To Start After Reboot

Mar 19, 2011

Few days ago we had a server maintenance. The system was shutdown, we fix the CPU fan, and start the system again. But somehow when the system starts, our IMAP server - dovecot is not running. It just sit like a rock. Because the machine had a CPanel/WHM, I tried to restart dovecot using cpanel and got a message:


That was not really useful....

When I tried to restart dovecot using command line, I got nothing. really nothing.


How to find out what happens to my IMAP/dovecot? And anyway to make it run again?

I'm using CentOS 5.5 X64 with dovecot 1.2.16

Server :: Limiting POP3/IMAP Access Frequency?

Sep 24, 2010

My server listens to POP3/IMAP requests. Some users have configured their mailers with high checking frequencies, say once every minute, such that the system logs are full of entries with no significance at all.I'd like to ask if there is a way to limit the per IP frequency of POP3/IMAP access ?I'm using "xinetd" to wrap the "ipop3d" and "imapd" which come with the Alpine package.

Ubuntu Servers :: Configure A POP3 / IMAP Proxy Server?

Jan 25, 2011

This is my first post to the forum

I've recently migrated my office PCs to ubuntu. My server doesn't server any big purpose but to provide Internet Connection to the rest of the nodes. Things were quite easier during the windows era using ICS.

Even in Ubuntu we were able to do it using the "shared network" option, simple & straight forward. But things got complicated only after installing "squid". Needless to say it brought in a lot of add ons as far as the http proxy serving is concerned & we are enjoying a better internet(http only) connectivity without any doubt. But we are not able to use our email clients, MS Outlook or Thunderbird

But to best of my knowledge squid strictly is a http proxy hence doesn't support handling requests on ports other than 80. (465 & 995 in my case)

Now I have two queries, 1. Can "Squid" really be used to do what I want here??? using iptables, port forwarding or any other mean
& 2. Can any one suggest a good pop3/imap proxy as good as squid is.

Ubuntu :: Retrieve Email By POP3 Via IMAP To Home Server?

Feb 16, 2011

I want to retrieve emails from my POP3 servers to my home server. But from there, I want to be able to access them via IMAP from my other computers, i.e. desktop, laptop, phone. And then of course I want to be able to send emails from said devices via IMAP to my home server which POP3's them out to my mail servers. Basically, I have a few POP3 accounts with various hosts and I want to conveniently interact with them from lots of devices using my preferred software (i.e. Mutt, or Thunderbird on my Windows boxes). My home server is Ubuntu Server if that's relevant.

Server :: Courier Or Dovecot For IMAP?

Mar 18, 2011

Does anyone know if there are only personal preferences between the two IMAP servers or does one of a slight advantage over the other? I've used Dovecot only in the past but my package manager loads tons of MySQL libraries with Dovecot which is a problem since that's not authorized on my server right now. I can either install it from source or try another application like Courier.

Fedora Networking :: Setup A Single Imap Server To Pop3 Service ?

Mar 31, 2010

My actual mail is via pop3 from verizon. What I've done so far is just pull my pop3 mail onto my main machine at my house. But I'm finding I'd rather have a single imap server on my network so then all my machines could see the same mail.

I don't really want the imap server to poll verizon for mail, I just want the imap server to check pop3 mail at verizon only when one of my mail apps checks into it to look for mail.

Server :: Error: Connection Dropped By IMAP With Dovecot

Apr 19, 2011

I am running SquirrelMail version 1.4.8-5.el5.centos.10 on a CentOS 5.6 64-bit distribution with MailScanner 4.83.4, Sendmail 8.13.8/8.13.8, and Dovecot 1.0.7 release. One user is having problems connecting via the SquirrelMail interface to his e-mail. Whenever he tries to connect, he gets the following error message:


Error: Connection dropped by IMAP server with dovecot

I have tested another user account, and that user is able to connect without issue. I confirmed the presence of dovecot.index, dovecot.index.cache, and dovecot.index.log files in the user's <HOME DIR>/mail/.imap/INBOX folder. The /var/log/maillog files do not list any apparent error messages with SquirrelMail.

Server :: Dovecot IMAP And Subfolders - Mac's Mail Application And Thunderbird - Both Come Up With Error

Mar 18, 2010

I'm running Dovecot version dovecot-1.0.7 on CentOS 5.4. I'm trying to create subfolders and I can't. I've tried Mac's mail application and Thunderbird; they both come up with an error, basically saying that the server doesn't support level one folders(subfolders). Squirrelmail can't create subfolders neither. I did some reading and thought that perhaps the problem lies in the /etc/dovecot.conf file; specifically with the "mail_location" directive. I currently don't have that directive active which means Dovecot uses defaults settings: saving users' mail in the %u/mail folder. Is there any way to configure Dovecot to use subfolders?

Fedora :: Can't Authenticate Using Via POP3 For Dovecot / Fix It?

Jul 4, 2010

I believe I have everything but this setup, as when I use my Outlook's Test Account Setting, it's able to do the following:
1) Send a test e-mail
2) Connect to POP3
3) See the actual test e-mail at /var/spool/mail/<username>

However, the Test Account Setting wasn't able to authenticate to POP3. I then do the following:
1) Start up Command Prompt.
2) Execute "telnet <server IP> 110". It gives me "+OK Dovecot ready".
3) Type "user <username>"
4) Type "pass <password>". It gives me "-ERR Authentication failed".

Then I searched around and found this. However, I'm not sure if I am able to make any sense out of it.

My CentOS 5.5 is setup with the following standard files:
/etc/passwd (password field contains the character "x")
/etc/shadow (examining this reveals it's using MD5 has as the password field begins with $1$)

So how should I set my /etc/dovecot.conf? I think it's this file I need to setup to enable POP3 authentication?

Ubuntu :: Setting Up Gmail In Evolution: Imap Or Pop3?

Jan 26, 2011

I'm trying to set up my gmail account with Evolution. I am trying to set up a mail client where -

1) All the mails are stored locally, so that I can work offline. When I reconnect, the client (Evolution) syncs with the server - sends emails and updates any changes.

2) All the labels/folder system to be respected and retained.

After struggling with various sites that argued Pop3 and IMAP (numerous blogs and google searches), I came across this conclusion (pls correct them if they are wrong)-

1) Pop3 allows mails to be stored locally, but will not break them up into folders.

2) IMAP will allow the folder system, but will only store the headers of mail on the local server, and the content will be downloaded as per request.

1) Will Pop3 access allow syncing between the local version and the server version? For instance, a mail read in Evolution should be marked as read when I sign into the web-interface as well.(I can always create a filter/rule that replicates gmail filters)

2) Will IMAP allow me to store all mail locally (isn't this exactly what IMAP is not!)? The combination of imap-gmail-evolution was not so successful when I tried it out - too slow!

PS: I would prefer Evolution over Thunderbird so that I can integrate the Calendar. However, if ThunderBird is the easiest solution, then it's fine too...

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't POP3 - IMAP Into Gmail / Enable This?

Aug 7, 2011

I'm trying to connect to Gmail to pull my emails from the Gmail site, via the IMAP/POP3 access server. However, I can't seem to connect to the server when in Ubuntu code...

And it hangs here indefinitely. However, if I reboot my PC into Windows, it connects fine. I've turned off UFW so I would expect the connection to work. I've also been able to POP3 into other servers, so it seems to be something specific to the gmail IP.

Anyone else had the same problem or know how I can debug/fix this?

Software :: POP3 Access Through Dovecot With Outlook 2007

Aug 15, 2010

I have recently set up a mail system using Postfix, Dovecot, Spamassasin, ClamAV and atMail - I'm new at this, so proud of myself to have gotten this far. I have required secure authetication for both sending through SMTP and access via POP3 and IMAP. All seems to work properly. I have tested POP3 with KMail and Evolution and everything works great. The only problem is I cannot get Outlook 2007 to authenticate for POP3. I can send through SMTP with secure authentication from Outlook, but no matter what I try I cannot get it to authenticate for POP3 access. Checking SPA in Outlook causes it to repeatedly ask for credentials which it does not accept, while un-checking it causes the client to be immediately rejected by the server.

I have turned on all the various relevant client work-around options in Dovecot and Postfix (that I am aware of) and I have hunted through the web to see what I can find, but no luck.

Besides using the listed client work-arounds in the Dovecot config file, can anyone shed light on what else I might need to do to get Outlook 07 working with POP3?
