Description Jacob Killian 2001-08-03 16:09:19 UTC
Description of Problem:

After upgrading to imap2000c, virtual pop accounts can't login and get 
mail.  They can receive mail (new mail shows up in 
/var/spool/vmail/username).  Primary domain pop users can get mail 
through ipop3d.

Client gets the following message: "-ERR Bad login"

/var/log/messages reports: "Aug  3 10:35:57 mail1 ipop3d[19027]: Login 
failure user=info@vdomain.com host=[]"  There is not the 
corresponding PAM message, which indicates a bad username/password.

/var/log/maillog reports nothing.

/var/log/secure reports the ipop3d connection	

How Reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install RH 6.2
2. Add a virtual pop account
3. Upgrade to imap2000c
4. Attempt to pop mail for the virtual pop account.

Actual Results:

See description.

Expected Results:

Login and retrieve mail.

Comment 2 Jacob Killian 2001-08-03 18:51:43 UTC
Um, I don't think this is the same problem...regular users can still get their
mail through ipop3d, it's only the virtual pop accounts which are having
problems.  Also, the imap and pop entries in /etc/pam.d/ are there, contrary to
what was reported in bug id #49604.

If you still think it's the same problem, when can I expect to see the errata

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2001-08-03 18:58:37 UTC
This bug is caused by the missing pamauth stuff.  The files were
omitted from the errata accidentally.  You can use the older files
as they are the same.

Errata will be out when it is ready.

I have the 1.6.1 release installed, and the virtual pops still dont work. It 
appears not to check for the name of the user under the virtual server.
There are two entrys in /etc/pam.d/pop
auth       required     /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so shadow nullok
account    required     /lib/security/pam_pwdb.so
[root@test pam.d]# 

all latest patches installed. (current rpms)
[root@test /root]# rpm -q imap-2000c
[root@test /root]# rpm -q imap-devel-2000c

Any suggestions? Virtual directorys exist
in /vhome/virtualdomain/home/username

I dont see where the password files for the virtual users is though?
Thought they were supposed to be in
/vhome/virtualdomain/etc ?

After telneting to my same system using two different names it would appear 
that the pop3 demon does not reconize the name? see below
bash# telnet test.longhofer.com pop-3
Connected to test.longhofer.com (
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK POP3 test.longhofer.com v2000.70rh server ready
-ERR Unknown AUTHORIZATION state command


telnet> bye
?Invalid command
telnet> quit
Connection closed.
bash# telnet sinistah.com pop-3
Connected to sinistah.com (
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK POP3 test.longhofer.com v2000.70rh server ready

I have created the sinistah.com virtual mail listing
and created pop only users in the sinistah.com relm.

It appears that the pop3 demon can not differ. After reading around the web a 
bit, is it required to install vpop3d on RH 6.2 to make this work?

Any suggestions?
