a001 NO [AUTHENTICATIONFAILED] Authentication failed
« on: April 16, 2010, 12:08:31 PM »
I am trying to set up the round cube.
After modifying the main.config file, and when im trying to test the IMAP, I am providing a user which is a unix user name. so I am getting this bellow error:

Connecting to fedora...
IMAP connect:  NOT OK(Authentication for waddah failed (LOGIN): "a001 NO [AUTHENTICATIONFAILED] Authentication failed.")


when i try to login with the same username and password im getting login failed message. When I look at the /var/log/maillog i can see the following error:

localhost dovecot: imap-login: Disconnected (auth failed, 1 attempts): user=, method=PLAIN, rip=::1, lip=::1, secured

I have tried to search about this error before submitting this post but i could not find any answer.

I would be grateful if somebody can help me out here.

thanks in advance.

cheers
Waddah

i managed to solve the issue by the following:

in the dovecot.conf i changed the authentication method to PLAIN
disable_plaintext_auth = no

i changed the Data source for users to standard unix users database

i changed the authentication source from the PAM

i changed the user_domain settings in the main.inc.conf of the RC to blank

and this made me able to login to RC :)

I hope this helps others in the future :)

cheers
