Please help me sort out my e-mail problem
I have installed Postfix.
Postfix was configured. I can telnet to Postfix. Postfix is accepting mail correctly from the outside world.
I have installed Courier-IMAP.
Courier-IMAP configuration has been left default. I can telnet to Courier-IMAP.
I have created a UNIX user account (user name: lol) (password: 11).
I am using Thunderbird as my mail client. Thunderbird can see both SMTP (Postfix) and IMAP (Courier-IMAP) servers. I am using the user name "lol" and password "11" to login - the problem is that Thunderbird is saying I have the wrong user name and password.
I have tried logging in via Telnet, and this is what I get:
What have I done wrong?
telnet localhost 143
Connected to localhost.
