ERROR : Connection dropped by imap-server

Dear all,
I have a question regarding e-mail server.
I use Slackware, IMAP, Squirrel Mail, PHP  in my company e-mail server.
I add a user in system  using "adduser" command.
I gave only Login name (john)
and password as daved.

Then I add aliases like
john.dave:  johnd

Next I open my squirrel  mail program and
tried to login by giving john as login name and
daved as password. But I got this error
"ERROR : Connection dropped by imap-server"
Please help me to solve this issue.
Thanks in advance

Check /var/log/messages and see if it has information related to this problem.

Thanks for the answer.
I will /var/log/messages tomorrow in work.
Can you please explain how can I solve this
issue by using messages in /var/log/messages.
Thanks again for your answer.

Depends on the issue. Usually it should report this in /var/log/messages but not always.

Is it working for other people?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks for the answer.
Yes, there are 10 other people.
They are OK.

Perhaps a typo: you mention "john" as login name, but the alias you say is
"john.dave: johnd"
Perhaps user name and mailbox name must be identical?

Well I found the answer.
I use squirrel mail.  After I add user
to the system and add to the aliases
I have to send an e-mail using the new
e-mail address to the person whom
I made an e-mail account.

Ah it probably errored out then because the mail directory didn't exist yet. The MTA probably created it when an e-mail came in for the user.
