hello all,

I am following the wiki https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Complete_Virtual_Mail_Server to create a mail server on my gentoo

for info, I use to have a postfix/phpmyadmin/mysql/courier-imap server that worked perfectly but my users wanted a virtual based system and the wiki does not provide info for mysql so I went with postgrsql

now, I am at the point of testing the mailbox creation and the wiki refert to a testuser that I can see nowhere. so I try to create my own user with postfixadmin

I can create virtual domains. but when I try to create a mailbox I get :

Jan 10 22:33:52 myhost sudo: pam_unix(sudo:auth): conversation failed
Jan 10 22:33:52 myhost sudo: pam_unix(sudo:auth): auth could not identify password for [apache]

I review all the settings, still no success.

any idea what this means ?

that happen very often, I post here then I find the solution. I had benn looking for a day before posting, but I find the solution only after I post

the script that runs after the mailbox creation were not chmod+x so they could not run
