That did the trick on that server! I wounder why I haven't thought of that before. Then again its the small pices that make the wheel turn, sometimes.

If that was not the problem, you may also run courier with environment
variable set


This will enable more messages in /var/log/maillog during authentication and
this may give you an idea.

You mean I can set it in one of the files in /usr/local/etc/courier-imap/ named:
imapd, imapd.dist, pop3d or pop3d.dist

But there are no way to do it for imapd-ssl, then again I can test it with imapd (No ssl via port 143). Then the problem should be about the same for imapd as well as with imapd-ssl. Or am I out on to deep water?

No problem here: mail# ./vpasswd [EMAIL PROTECTED] Please enter password for [EMAIL PROTECTED]: enter password again: mail#

Added a new user: mail# ./vadduser [EMAIL PROTECTED] Please enter password for [EMAIL PROTECTED]: enter password again: mail#

Added a new virtaldomain:
mail# ./vadddomain webmail.birch.se
Please enter password for postmaster:
enter password again:

Something like:

cat /var/qmail/users/assign
mail# cat assign
mail# id vpopmail
uid=89(vpopmail) gid=89(vchkpw) groups=89(vchkpw)
