Hey, first off, I'll tell you my system.
Operating system: CentOS Linux 4.6 Webmin version: 1.420 Virtualmin version: 3.57.gpl (GPL) Running Dovecot 0.99.11
I'm not really sure if this has been going on since I set up the system some months back, or if I changed something at one point that caused it to mess up.
Here's the problem. If I set up a mail user under a virtual server in Virtualmin, I can't log in to dovecot through pop3 or imap to get the mail. It works for the main user account on the virtual server, but not for created users under it.
I looked in the maillog and this is what I get every time I try to retrieve mail for the created user "register" under the virtual server: dovecot: chdir(/home/mainuser/homes/register) failed with uid 501: Permission denied pop3-login: Login: register.mainuser [::ffff:220.127.116.11] dovecot: child 16754 (pop3) returned error 89
I get the same error with imap, it just says imap instead.
I've tried messing around with permissions, giving the homes and register directories full 777 permissions and still permission is denied.
Has this issue been brought up before? Any known workarounds or fixes for it?
Thanks for any help.
