imap fixed; still can't get imaps to work
Authored by: babbage on May 10, '05 06:42:08PM

Okay, it looks like the suggestion in this hint did the trick for getting my IMAP daemon working, at least in non-SSL mode. I'm still trying to get the other half working, but I can at least start using the IMAP server now.

$ sudo cp /etc/pam.d/ftpd /etc/pam.d/imap
$ sudo cp /etc/pam.d/ftpd /etc/pam.d/pop3

I also did the security symlink, but it doesn't seem to have helped:

$ sudo ln -s /usr/include/pam /usr/include/security

I am, admittedly, cargo culting a bit here. When I figure out how to get this working and what had to happen to make it work, I'll come back and write a cleaner version of the steps that were followed.

Ahh, I've got it. Once the xinet.d changes have been made, you have to force the daemon to rescan its config file. The easiest way to do this is simply sudo killall -HUP xinetd; after doing this, I've got IMAP/SSL working again. W00t! :-)

Hey Babbage,

Any chance of you documenting your process, as promised.
Been trolling, hunting and under-the-bridge sitting, since my Tiger upgrade to get my Postfix up and running.

Used to use: Postfix-Enabler before. I'm not cheapo, but the $9.95 just gave me the incentive to try and get it done myself (with macosxhints.com help, of course).

I've been reading several articles, but nothing concrete and comprehensive.

Looking at your success, I hope you can post something soon.

Cheers.

Hey Babbage,

My imapd is broken also...

What I did was use passwd on one user in my box to change the password. That change worked fine... for ssh anyway. But now when I `telnet localhost 143` and use "a login <username> <password>" I get denied for the user that I change the password... but all the other users can get in just fine...

[code]
"a login <user1> <unchaged_password>"
a OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4REV1 IDLE NAMESPACE MAILBOX-REFERRALS BINARY UNSELECT SCAN SORT THREAD=REFERENCES THREAD=ORDEREDSUBJECT MULTIAPPEND] User <user1> authenticated

"a login <user2> <new_password>"
a NO LOGIN failed
[/code]


I made the /usr/include/security link and /etc/pam.d/ftpd copies. Didn't seem to help... Any other suggestions?


Thanks,
M@
