Description Mike Chambers 2004-05-01 22:59:17 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040422

Description of problem:
On a fresh install of dovecot, the /etc/dovecot.conf file is setup it
seems for only imap intially, and should be setup for pop3 as well.

Also the auth lines toward the bottom seem to point to a location/file
that don't exist, mainly auth_userdb and auth_passdb

And because of above, dovecot won't start.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install dovecot
2.service dovecot start

Actual Results:  service dovecot start show the OK but doesn't start
up any daemons.

Expected Results:  service dovecot start should start up the daemon
and allow imap and pop3 initially to run unless the user doesn't want
one or the other.

Additional info:

The main 3 lines at least that I see that need auth_userdb = pgsql
/usr/local/etc/dovecot-pgsql.conffixed are below..

#protocols = imap imaps
should be protocols = imap imaps pop3 pop3s

auth_userdb = pgsql /usr/local/etc/dovecot-pgsql.conf
should be below..
auth_userdb = passwd

auth_passdb = pgsql /usr/local/etc/dovecot-pgsql.conf
should be below...
auth_passdb = shadow

I've also attached my dovecot.conf file if you want to compare.

I have set auth_userdb = passwd and auth_passdb = pam.  I will not set
default protocols because by default it works with imap and imaps, and
the administrator has the option of changing this.

The package update was past the freeze deadline, so it has been
rejected.  It will go out as a FC2 update later.
