    Dovecot Denies Access


    I try to setup Dovecot using Squirrelmail as frontend.
    But it keeps Dropping me
    This is what the log says:
    Code:
    dovecot: Jan 07 14:46:28 Error: auth(default): userdb(john,::ffff:127.0.0.1): user not found from userdb
    dovecot: Jan 07 14:52:07 Error: auth(default): userdb(john,::ffff:127.0.0.1): user not found from userdb
    dovecot: Jan 07 14:55:31 Error: auth(default): userdb(john,::ffff:127.0.0.1): user not found from userdb
    dovecot: Jan 07 14:57:29 Error: auth(default): userdb(test,::ffff:127.0.0.1): user not found from userdb
    dovecot: Jan 07 14:57:58 Error: auth(default): userdb(john,::ffff:127.0.0.1): user not found from userdb
    So I go the my userdb (/etc/dovecot/passwd) and I see the following:
    Code:
    john:{PLAIN}secret
    test:{PLAIN}test
    Umm, so the Database has the user in there.
    What happens if I enter a wrong username and wrong password..
    The following:
    I dont get a new Record in the Dovecot Log file.
    And I get Access Denied from SquirrelMail and not from Dovecot.
    Ok well lets Review my Config "/etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf"
    Code:
      passdb passwd-file {
        # File contains a list of usernames, one per line
        args = /etc/dovecot/passwd
        deny = no
      }
    Does anyone have a Clue what I do wrong?
    And how to fix it?
    Since well, I kinda need Dovecot really quick.
    I dont get this error :S

    Cheers,
    Robin
