Hello all,

Im just trying to set up my courier-imap with mysql authentication. Everything is working when I use 'authpam'. I can send and receive emails with help of postfix. My only problem is user authentication for imap using mysql database so users can access they email.
 select * from passwd;
+---------+-------+----------+--------------+------+------+------+---------+-----------------+-------+---------+
| id        | crypt | clear    | name         | uid  | gid  | home | maildir | defaultdelivery | quota | options |
+---------+-------+----------+--------------+------+------+------+---------+-----------------+-------+---------+
| user1 |       | password | user one | 1000 | 1000 | /home/user1     |         |                 |       |         |
+---------+-------+----------+--------------+------+------+------+---------+-----------------+-------+---------+

 settings in  /etc/courier/authmysqlrc

MYSQL_SERVER            localhost
MYSQL_USERNAME          admin
MYSQL_PASSWORD          password
MYSQL_DATABASE          courier_auth  
I'm sure that this four lines are correct and connection to database is working - 100% sure
MYSQL_USER_TABLE        passwd
#MYSQL_CRYPT_PWFIELD    crypt
MYSQL_CLEAR_PWFIELD     clear    
MYSQL_UID_FIELD         uid
MYSQL_GID_FIELD         gid
MYSQL_MAILDIR_FIELD     $HOME/Maildir

The log file :
Jun 30 16:21:50 service2 imaplogin: LOGIN FAILED, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]

it does not tell much where is a problem however the connection to database is correct because I wil get different error!! So the problem is probably somewhere on id and clear field. I did try login by thinderbird as well as manually using telnet.

Anyone can see what I'm missing here?

thanks

Hello Nopius,

Sorry for delay, my MYSQL_LOGIN_FIELD   is set to  'id' I just forgot to mention it in my question. Still did not find out what is the problem.

it seems that the problme is somewhere in authdaemon.

imapd: authdaemon: TEMPFAIL - no more modules will be tried

hi,

It was a pain but I get it working. The problem is that config files are really sensitive to inappropriate use of TABS and SPACES:-))
