Aloha !


I have been struggling with this for quite a while now and I get all kind of error messages so time to set my pride aside and call in the cavelary :D

So what did I do.
I follewed this guide : https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Complete_Virtual_Mail_Server
but I get stuck at the chapter where I test my courier-authlib : https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Complete_Virtual_Mail_Server/Courier-IMAP_to_Database#Testing_courier-authlib

When I start a telnet session to my Postman-Pat, yeah I know original name hu, it does not login and the mail.log shows this :

Code:

Aug 27 19:51:25 postmanpat pop3d[13940]: Connection, ip=[::ffff:10.0.1.129]
Aug 27 19:51:40 postmanpat authdaemond[13857]: received auth request, service=pop3, authtype=login
Aug 27 19:51:40 postmanpat authdaemond[13857]: authmysql: trying this module
Aug 27 19:51:40 postmanpat authdaemond[13857]: authmysqllib: connected. Versions: header 50716, client 60111, server 50726
Aug 27 19:51:40 postmanpat authdaemond[13857]: SQL query: SELECT username, password, '', '5000', '5000', CONCAT(homedir, maildir), '', quota, name, '' FROM mailbox WHERE username = 'info@mydomain.nl' AND (1=1)
Aug 27 19:51:40 postmanpat authdaemond[13857]: password matches successfully
Aug 27 19:51:40 postmanpat authdaemond[13857]: authmysql: sysusername=<null>, sysuserid=5000, sysgroupid=5000, homedir=/var/vmail/mydomain.nl/info/, address=info@mydomain.nl, fullname=Full Name, maildir=<null>, quota=51200000, options=<null>
Aug 27 19:51:40 postmanpat authdaemond[13857]: Authenticated: sysusername=<null>, sysuserid=5000, sysgroupid=5000, homedir=/var/vmail/mydomain.nl/info/, address=info@mydomain.nl, fullname=Full Name, maildir=<null>, quota=51200000, options=<null>
Aug 27 19:51:40 postmanpat pop3d[13940]: chdir .maildir: No such file or directory



The directory exists, there is even a welcome mail sent by Postfix-Admin :

Code:

postmanpat / # find /var/vmail/mydomain.nl/info/
total 20K
/var/vmail/mydomain.nl/info/
/var/vmail/mydomain.nl/info/tmp
/var/vmail/mydomain.nl/info/new
/var/vmail/mydomain.nl/info/new/1566916968.V804I9e363aM621495.postmanpat
/var/vmail/mydomain.nl/info/cur



and.... the authorisation seems to be able to find the data from the database :

Code:

postmanpat / # authtest info@mydomain.nl
Authentication succeeded.

     Authenticated: info@mydomain.nl  (uid 5000, gid 5000)
             Home Directory: /var/vmail/mydomain.nl/info/
             Maildir: (none)
             Quota: 51200000
             Encrypted Password: $1$40018005$n2ngpwyfh5BpVfyYSmY021
             Cleartext Password: (none)
             Options: (none)
postmanpat  / #



I can't quite wrap my head around what happens here :(
What am I doing wrong this time....



Cheeeeeeeeeeeers,

Jecepede

Not using courier-authlib - but is there a .maildir-directory inside the homedir (isn't it trying to chdir to that?)

Also I see a note in the guide
Quote:
Note
The MAILDIRPATH section contains some dupes, make sure it is properly set and cleaned up.

Dunno if that only applies to the IMAP-part of courier-imap configuration

Aloha !

I'm an idiot....
In the file /etc/courier/authlib/authmysqlrc
I set the home directoy and the maildir incorrectly :oops:

It was mIAldir in stead of mAIldir:

Code:

MYSQL_HOME_FIELD        CONCAT(homedir, mialdir)
#MYSQL_MAILDIR_FIELD     maildir


Changed it into :

Code:

MYSQL_HOME_FIELD        homedir
MYSQL_MAILDIR_FIELD     maildir


...then restarted and voila, it works :D
I do wonder why I did not get an SQL error by the way ????



Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeers,


Jecepede
