    Re: Howto: set up a mail server in Ubuntu

    Alright, I've followed this howto through however in the mail.log I keep getting the following error popping up whenever I try to send anything, and obviously the mail never sees the light of day again...

    Code:
    Dec 22 09:25:37 localhost master[13348]: fatal: master_spawn: exec /usr/lib/postfix/2: No such file or directory
    Dec 22 09:25:38 localhost postfix/master[13324]: warning: process /usr/lib/postfix/2 pid 13348 exit status 1
    Dec 22 09:25:38 localhost postfix/master[13324]: warning: /usr/lib/postfix/2: bad command startup -- throttling
    For the life of me I can't figure out why it's trying to run /usr/lib/postfix/2, there's a number of other executables in there but no 2, and search as I may I can't even find references to anything like this. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

    I bet a line your master.cf startes with 2 ?

    Remember if a property spans many lines the additional lines must be prefixed with tabs or spaces.

    Thats the way it works.
    Often I bang my head against the screen for hours, but as soon as I ask a collegue for input, the process of describing the problem often makes it obvious to myself what is wrong.

    Looks like you are using squirrelmail, does normal imap work okay?
    Seems Squirrelmail has been set to use SASL authentication, but courier has not been set to use SASL

    Question Re: Howto: set up a mail server in Ubuntu

    hi... i'm kind a newb in this... i'm following the guide as is but i get in this part in red text
    Edit imapd (located in /etc/courier/)
    # set how many connections to use per person. Easy to underestimate if you have 6 mailboxes set up.
    MAXPERIP=20
    # high debug to start with
    DEBUG_LOGIN=2
    IMAPDSTART=YES
    Then edit the same in the pop and ssl options, if you are going to use them.
    where are the files? i mean i just need the pop file but i don't know where to find it... if edit this /etc/courier/pop the file is blank... i'm lost.


    thanks

    Sorry, my howto only install the IMAP packages, as there is no need for POP when IMAP is available. However if some prefer pop or need to fetch mail then install the courier-pop and courier-pop-ssl packages, which will in turn create the files needed
