my last message which appears to have not actually made it to the list.
sorry guys for the confusion, i'll start again. :-)
last night i wrote:
thanks for the pointers, people. in the end we got pwcheck to run but
imapd still couldn't talk to it.
so rather than waste time on an old unsupported version we found cyrus2
in debian unstable and installed that. (i'm supposed to have this
system in production on the weekend, erk..)
now i think i have a sasl problem. what do you make of this?
i've created the user cyrus in the sasldb:
user: cyrus realm: humphrey mech: PLAIN
but can't connect:
humphrey:/home/stewart# cyradm -user cyrus localhost
Login failed: user not found at /usr/lib/perl5/Cyrus/IMAP/Admin.pm line
cyradm: cannot authenticate to server as user cyrus
and i wondered if this might not have something to do with it:
humphrey:/home/stewart# dpkg -l|grep sasl
ii libsasl2 2.1.12-1 Authentication abstraction library
ii libsasl7 1.5.27-3 Authentication abstraction library.
ii sasl-bin 1.5.27-3 Programs for manipulating the SASL
ii sasl2-bin 2.1.12-1 Programs for manupulating the SASL
two sasl packages installed.
so just now i did an apt-get remove libsasl7 sasl-bin and apart from
it trying and failing to completely remove slapd i now only have the
newer version of sasl. (and a broken slapd but that issue can wait...)
trouble is, i still can't connect to the server, user (still) not
found. have removed /etc/sasldb* and ran saslpasswd2 to try again, as
now very tired grumpy and stuck. i don't want to have to go back to
uw-imap but at this late stage it might be my only option... i just
hope i'm missing something obvious?
ps oh, by the way, the tip about syslog/imap/debugging doesn't seem to
work here either ...
pps that impad.conf again:
