Dovecot + squirrelmail issue

Latest response

Hi group,



I am experiencing a strange issue.


With linux users that where on the server before I configured dovecot imap and squirrelmail I can log into webmail without any issues.


But if I add a new user I get following errors, and I do not know where to look for the cause


Nov 10 22:15:28 intel dovecot: imap-login: Login: user=<mindtree>, method=PLAIN, rip=, lip=, mpid=15421, secured
Nov 10 22:15:28 intel dovecot: imap(mindtree): Error: user mindtree: Initialization failed: mail_location not set and autodetection failed: Mail storage autodetection failed with home=/home/mindtree
Nov 10 22:15:28 intel dovecot: imap(mindtree): Error: Invalid user settings. Refer to server log for more information.

What server log is meaned?


Or has anyone experienced this and found a fix.



Kind regards,



Jan Gerrit Kootstra


Hi Thomas,



Thanks, this was the right link.


The ones I found all wanted to use a MAILDIR instead of a INBOX directive and failed.


INBOX solved the issue for new users and kept the old users working.


Thanks again,
