Dovecot not working, no instructions for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
I followed these instructions to the letter:
Dovecot is not working. It says it's starting, but it's really not:
$ sudo service dovecot start dovecot start/running, process 3180 $ ps ax|grep dovecot 3185 pts/0 S+ 0:00 grep --color=auto dovecot
Telnetting to localhost pop3 or imap confirms this. Any help would be appreciated.
Also IMPORTANT: these lines must be removed from the "protocol lda" block:
mail_plugins = sieve global_script_path = /home/vmail/globalsieverc
/var/log/mail.log and /var/log/mail.err are both empty
dovecot-deliver.log file under /home/vmail produces:
2013-03-25 13:05:25 lda: Fatal: Internal error occurred. Refer to server log for more information.
2013-03-25 13:15:25 lda: Error: userdb lookup(
telnet localhost pop3 results:
Connected to localhost.domainname.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
Connection closed by foreign host.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
