Hi!
I just set up a mail server, using this tutorial:
http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_server_gentoo_2007.0_p5
The mail goes in homedir, it's all nice, but it is hard to understand something there, so I decided that I need a webmail.
SquirrelMail was the webmail I choosed, but the problem is that courier-imap doesn't seem to work or something else is wrong.
When I try to login in the webmail it says that there has been an error, connection with IMAP server is dropped.
I used the pre-made configs, doing all on lighttpd.
Btw, Is there a way to disable SFTP, SSH and other access to files which are on the linux box?
Because I simply used "useradd -d /home/user user", and btw, this kind of a user account will work in the webmail too, right?

Using "mutt" I found out that there is a "Temproary problem".
I'm getting this error also from Outlook.

I find myself in a similar situation. In fact, I'm getting the same error: "ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server
" when I visit https://hostname/squirrelmail/src/login.php and log in.

I admit that I have little email administration experience.

My build is gentoo/apache/dovecot/postfix/squirrelmail which I've configured according to the same guide.

Here is my /etc/portage/make.conf http://codepad.org/8aGYQ0fr

cat /etc/postfix/main.cf | grep -v "#" | grep -v '^$' produces http://codepad.org/lusx2nq7

and finally netstat seems to indicate that IMAP and IMAPS should be reachable.
Code:
 
netstat --listening --tcp
Active Internet connections (only servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State     
tcp        0      0 *:imaps                 *:*                     LISTEN     
tcp        0      0 localhost:mysql         *:*                     LISTEN     
tcp        0      0 *:imap                  *:*                     LISTEN     
tcp        0      0 *:ssh                   *:*                     LISTEN     
tcp        0      0 *:smtp                  *:*                     LISTEN     
tcp6       0      0 [::]:http               [::]:*                  LISTEN     
tcp6       0      0 [::]:ssh                [::]:*                  LISTEN     
tcp6       0      0 [::]:smtp               [::]:*                  LISTEN     
tcp6       0      0 [::]:https              [::]:*                  LISTEN
 


Where should I look next?
