I think you can not use the @ sign in virtual adresses for portability purposes (some client mua are not able to work with account@domain for the login field)
It also means that you can not have more than one alias for all the domain you are hosting -> e.g. test@somedomain can not exists if test@anotherdomain exists...
What you should try todo if you want aliases trough multiple domains is to use a virtusertable with you smtp server to redirect aliases to distinct courier users ; )
Rewrite your virtual accounts and try to log without the @ sign !
i had success with virtual userdb users and pop3. delivery works
sorry i wanted to write:
i had no success... :)
without a problem, but i cannot fetch mails with pop3. i don't know what i should do now, i read the manpages an html docs, but cannot find a solution. is there a searchable mailing list archive?
/etc/courier/pop3d: [...] authmodulelist="authuserdb authpam" [...]
# userdb -show te...@mydomain.de home=/home/myuser/User/test systempw=sNgzmR5zPca3I gid=1021 uid=1021
# telnet localhost pop3 Trying 127.0.0.1... Connected to localhost. Escape character is '^]'. +OK Hello there. user te...@mydomain.de +OK Password required. pass mypass [here it waits 5 seconds] -ERR Login failed.
I've had no problems with all my usernames being us...@domain.com....
You are right, i've just tried it now and it seems to work well... i've probably missed something in the configuration steps but there are still risks of portability problems as explained earlier
You should forget my previous remark concerning unique aliases but have a closer look at your password fields ; )
