Hi all,

I installed VirtualMin on a VPS running Ubuntu. Then I installed RoundCube using script on VirtualMin. I created a new one Email account (Edit Users -> Add a user to this server) and enabled IMAP client (Enable mail client autoconfiguration? = Yes).

But when I log into email accounts with RoundCube the error: “Connection to IMAP server failed”. I’ve used Thunderbird but it also connects error.

How fix it? Please help me.

Thanks, Thanh

Hi, <br> <br>Can you describe it more clearly is not? How can I check it? <br>In the Webmin menu is “Dovecot IMAP/POP3 Server” and “Postfix Mail Server”. <br> <br>Thanks, <br>Thanh

Check Webmin to make sure you have an IMAP module installed.
