I cannot get my mail working with virtualmin, dovecot and postfix
I have tried every setting. If I try to authenticate via my mailclient, I get an error instantly
If I try webmail (roundcube) I get: ‘SMTP authentication failed’.
I already checked:
What now? Where do I start debugging?
PS: I don`t now if this matters, but the VPS mainserver (the domain I talk about here is a subserver), the mainserver is a subdomain like: srv5.myserversdomain.com. This hostname (srv5) points to the VPS. On the VPS I run virtualmin and withing virtualmin I have srv5.myserverdomain.com as mainserver and mydomain.com as subserver. The website is working fine for mydomain.com, just the mail not.
PS, I tailed the log too this gives 2 errors all the time: > queue file write error > hash: /etc/postfix/bcc is unavailable. open database /etc/postfix/bcc.db: no such file or dir > sender_bcc_maps_lookup porblem
Thanks a lot!
