    Problem getting emails in Thunderbird via postfix

    Long story short. I have a SMTP server(haraka) on port 25 and a postfix server who receives mails from haraka. Using mail -u username, I can see my mails beeing received in postfix but I want to read them from Thunderbird. I've set up in Thunderbird an movemail account but without any success. My /postfix/master.cf look like this:

    Code:
    #
    # Postfix master process configuration file.  For details on the format
    # of the file, see the master(5) manual page (command: "man 5 master").
    #
    # Do not forget to execute "postfix reload" after editing this file.
    #

    Re: Problem getting emails in Thunderbird via postfix

    What is Thunderbird connecting to? Usually you need something like Dovecot installed to act as a go-between Postfix and an e-mail client, such as Thunderbird.
