I'm trying to get dovecot and postfix virtual domains working on an fc6
system. My software versions are postfix 2.4.5 installed from rpm and
dovecot 1.0.3 also installed from rpm.
I'm only running secure protocols, pop3s at the moment, imaps later on.
I've set up postfix for virtual mailbox domains as per it's howto on the
subject and confirmed that email sent gets delivered to the virtual area,
which in this case is /home/vmail/domain.com/username, there's a maildir
under that. In this case the user is a shell user who has a login, in all
other cases the users will be completely virtual, having no login account
and being completely virtual. When i atempt to get mail from the server
using this user, the one with the login, i am getting a can not map username
coming from dovecot.
Here's my config:
# 1.0.3: /etc/dovecot.conf
mechanisms: plain login
I'd appreciate any pointers. I think i am close, but am not seeing it.
