Subject Testin new installation
The first place I went to for test advice and planning recommendations
was http://wiki2.dovecot.org/TestInstallation - The very first test
failed. Doc says:
Next check that Dovecot is listening for connections:
# telnet localhost 143
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
* OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4rev1 LITERAL+ SASL-IR LOGIN-REFERRALS ID ENABLE
STARTTLS AUTH=PLAIN] Dovecot ready.
If you got "connection refused", make sure that Dovecot is configured
to serve the imap protocol and listening on the expected
simplest way to do that would be using
# doveconf protocols listen
protocols = imap pop3 lmtp sieve
listen = *, ::
If the protocols setting shouldn't contain imap so add it. Also make
sure, that relevant !include or !try_include configuration lines are
*** End doc extract ***
All of the above specified settings are correct. Yet, when I telnet
localhost 143, I get:
Trying ::1... # this is certainly suspect
Escape character is '^['.
Connection closed by foreign host.
