I installed Virtualmin GPL and created a few domains with email accounts etc.
Receiving emails is fine (sendmail) but then i realised i didn’t have dovecot installed. I installed it after virtualmin but I still cannot retreive email. The account I am trying does have email waiting and I can log in.
I’ve tried looking for documentation regarding virtualmin and dovecot but I don’t seem to be able to find anything that helps.
Is there anything I need to set up, mbox wise for dovecot to access the email?
The error in maillog is that it cannot create a dir under /home…/homes/user/mail. Does it even need to do this? As there is already mail being stored on the server somewhere else. I did temporarily set the dir to 777 but still with the same error.
Exerpt from maillog:
