Also, all the courier-imap prosesses are runned under root(UID 0)
There should be no processes named 'imapd' with UID 0.
Well, there are. As root I execute the courier-imap script which I have
in my init.d. When i have executed "/etc/init.d/courier-imap start"
serveral processes start.
The processes are couriertcd and logger. The logger utility starts pop3,
pop3-ssl, imapd and imapd-ssl, all of them under uid 0. I have followed
the instruction written on "Bill's Linux Qmail Toaster" to the spot. Is
this normal? And if not, how could I debug it?
May 9 18:14:43 spacelab pop3d: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1] (when I
start the session)
May 9 18:14:55 spacelab pop3d: /usr/lib/courier/imap/bin/pop3d:
Permission denied (after I have written in my username and password)
Authentification was successful, but the numerical UID 89 cant
I dont know the UID of vpopmail, but its probably not 89.
Run `ls -lan /var/qmail/vpopmail/domains/domain.no/davidk/Maildir`
to see the numerical UID, and check also the owner of delivered
messages. Everything must be owned by UID 89.
I have done that. I even chmoded the entire /var/qmail directory to 777
on the test server and still the same thing happens. The entire session
just dies when I enter the corret username/password.
As a result of that, I deleted everyting. I mean everything
(/var/qmail/*, /var/log/qmail*, /service/*, /usr/lib/courier-imap/*) and
startet all over again. Vpopmail and qmail works perfectly, adding
domains, users, sending email to user are easy as that. But when it
comes to the authentication question it just won't work. I have worked
all day with that question without getting any closer to the answear,
even that I am certain that the answear is so obvious as a wrong
permission on a file or a missing symlink or something.
I am using Linux Mandrake, Prosuite edition. I am using the "paranoid
security" setting, a setting that blocks about everything. If the
courier uses some other files outside the directories I mentioned over,
it is a big posibility that they are just availeble to root. Therefore,
is it some other files/permissions I should check?
