Dovecot - Plain Text Auth Issue
I am running postfix and dovecot.
I have postfix running - I can send email.
I dont see to have dovecot right yet.
When I try to get mail it accepts the username, but then asks for the password, I type it in and it tells me Authentication Failed.
I have the following set:
disable_plaintext_auth = no
auth_mechanisms = plain
auth_userdb = passwd /etc/passwd
auth_passdb = shadow
it has been a long time since I studied up on shadow and passwd, but to my recall if you have in your passwd file something to the effect of
that the * means you are using shadow for your passdb, right?
Damn I hope you can help me... thanks!
