    cyrus-imap


    i am having problems getting cyrus-imap to configure and work. it is installed jst cant get all the configurations to work. here is the command i have to run i will post what the instructions say to do and then post what i get when i run the certain command.

    su cyrus

    You are now the user cyrus. This is necessary for the files to have the correct owner and group. Continue:

    tools/mkimap
    cd /var/imap
    chattr +S . user quota user/* quota/*
    chattr +S /var/spool/imap
    exit
    ok the command i have having troubles with is
    chattr +S . user quota user/* quota/*
    this is what i get when i run it
    cyrus@server:/var/imap$ chattr +S . user quota user/* quota/*
    chattr: No such file or directory while trying to stat user
    chattr: No such file or directory while trying to stat quota
    chattr: No such file or directory while trying to stat user/*
    chattr: No such file or directory while trying to stat quota/*
    cyrus@server:/var/imap$
    any help on this would be great thanks

    To be quite honest with you, I'm fairly sure that you can ignore those instructions. The chattr +S command just sets the sync flag on the files. Ignoring this only means that your files may be a bit unstable if you get a real bad power failure, but if you're using a journalled FS, you should be pretty fine anyway.

    ok well if that dont matter then i must have another problem then cause i run into a spot where im suppose to test the imap server and add a admin user and what ever here is what im suppose to do

    8.1 Add the cyrus administrator
    Run the following command to set up a user for cyrus

    Code:
    /usr/local/sbin/saslpasswd cyrus
    8.2 Testing Cyrus IMAP

    Code:
    killall -HUP inetd
    su cyrus
    imtest -m login -p imap localhost
    so i go and run them they all work till i get to the imtest command here is what i get when i run it as cyrus:

    Code:
    cyrus@server:/$ imtest -m login -p imap localhost
    failure: prot layer failure
    cyrus@server:/$
    any ideas
