Topic: dovecot/imap issue
I'm nearly resigning here.
For the last few years I ran XMail on my debain server with XPai for account setup.
Now I decided to clean the server and go with a new Mail Service.
After installing iRedMail (with a few problems which could quite easily be solved) I ended up with a problem.
The Problem first seemed to be that dovecot was not running, so I started it manually.
That failed because it didn't know what to make of 'mail_uid' and 'mail_gid' and went down with a fatal error.
Which looked like this 'Error: Error in configuration [...]filedovecot.conf line 24: Unknown setting: mail_uid'
I also tried the settings which were used in older dovecot versions (global_user_gid etc.) which gave me the same error.
When commenting these lines out, dovecot starts normally, but a login (telnet: error, roundcube: timeout, squirrelmail: connection dropped by imap server) doesn't work.
I hope there's a solution.
