View Full Version : Upgrade FC2, E-Mail Services stuffed
6th June 2004, 02:26 AM
Upgraded from FC1 - FC2 and now My email is not accepting pop3 and imap connections.
It's enabled in xinetd or what ever, and the server is advertising it.

That's because FC1 came with UW imap, and FC2 has Cyrus-imap. I don't believe both can exist on the same machine due to package conflicts, so essentially the upgrade poofed your installation of UW imap. Either configure Cyrus, or remove it and re-install UW imap.

You'll find dovecot easier than doing all of that. FC2 comes with dovecot and cyrus-imap now. For pop3 and pop3s you need to edit /etc/dovecot.conf and specify;
'imap imaps pop3 pop3s'
on the services line (of course you'll need to create a cert for dovecot if you plan on using any of the 's' stuff.) But you'll notice dovecot by default with no configuration at all only does imap. It's far faster than UW or Coriour using standard unix mailbox's because of the indexing and caching. For Maildir it doesn't really matter which imap server you use. Cyrus is it's own transport and mailbox mechanism.. Good for large implimentations, not so ideal for smaller non sealed systems where people have shell access and whatnot or maybe want to use other applications to access mail files directly.
Anywho, this topic was covered a whole bunch of times in the past few threads..... I'm suprised you missed them all since they are all on the first page of threads.

I tried using dovecot, but got an error in the log... " could not create /var/mail/jeffa.lock " permission denied.. ??

Cancel that, got it all working.. Deleted the dovecot package, manually removed /etc/dovecot.conf
then apg-get install dovecot
edited dovecot.conf to include pop3 and thats it. started it and worked fine..
( ohyeh also added logging)
