[Dovecot] An unconstructive grumble

5 hours of configuration attempts, error after confusing error, documentation
with examples that only show extracts of working configurations.  I really
feel like throwing in the towel with dovecot.

It should not be this hard and frankly almost impossible to understand and
configure for such an incedibly simple configuration.


3 virtual users.  All I want is a username and password to access my email.

I have to have hit every error and problem there can be.  No response at all
from server, unable to find password file, unable to recognise user, invalid
password.  God it went on and on and on for five or more hours.  For such a
simple config.

I know this is a totally unconstructive complaint and I should be taking the
time to set out a careful explanation of my problem along with errors and
logfiles but I just can't be bothered.  I've tried so many many
configurations and options and nothing works. How can it possibly be this
hard to ghet some emails off the server with simple username/password

Go ahead and flame me to a crisp.
