Sorry if this made it two times
Hi I am trying to get usernames with an @ symbol to work properly.
My postfix, saslauthd, and ldap all work properly. I used the Invoca
of the 2.2.3 release.
In my /etc/imapd.conf
When I try to log in to the cyrus imap server it truncates the @....
portion of the login name i.e.
[robin at pdc]# telnet localhost 143
Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.
* OK mail.draftmail.org Cyrus IMAP4 v2.2.3-Invoca-RPM-2.2.3-4 server
. login robin at draftmail.org secretpass
. NO Login failed: authentication failure
[robin at pdc]# tail /var/log/ldap
Feb 8 12:30:34 pdc slapd: conn=280 op=1 SRCH
base="dc=draftmail,dc=org" scope=2 filter="(uid=robin)"
Also when I deliver mail through lmtp via postfix cyrus writes the
and using cyradm
[robin at pdc]# cyradm --user Administrator 127.0.0.1
localhost.localdomain> cm user.robin at draftmail.org
createmailbox: Invalid mailbox name
localhost.localdomain> cm user.test
Do users that are not in your default domain work as expected? As I
understand, the defaultdomain exists to "ease" the transition from older
versions of Cyrus-IMAPD to the 2.2.x with virtual domain support. The
theory being that any unqualified (read: pre-existing) user would be
treated as being in the default domain (and, by extension, any user in
the default domain would be treated as being unqualified.) If this is
the case, Cyrus is behaving as expected: for users in your draftmail.org
are treated as Cyrus has always treated those users so as to not break
anything for them on an upgrade.
Happily, a default domain is not required (if I remember a few posts
here correctly). If yours is a new installation, remove the
"defaultdomain" line from imapd.conf; however, you will need to create
the domain with "mkimap -d draftmail.org" and re-create the users'
mailboxes (or turn on usermoves in imapd and move them to the
