Topic: unable to receive emails after creating mbx using Openldap.py script

Hello Team,

I am testing the script Create_mail_user_OpenLdap.py using the below command.
python Create_mail_user_Openldap.py createmailbox.csv
This command generated createmailbox.csv.ldif file.
Used phpldapadmin to import the ldif file.
I am able to see all users in iRedAdmin and I am able to logon to the mailboxes.
I am able to send emails from this mailbox to external mailboxes. however, I am unable to receive any emails. Also, I cant see the mails in the sent items.
Users created using iRedAdmin works fine. Users created using Openldap.py script shows this behaviour. Am I missing some configuration on the openldap.py script or somewhere else?
Any help on this would be highly appreciated.

I cant see any difference after exporting the two users.
I believe, the script itself suppose to run the ldif file, but I dont get any prompt to run the ldif file while running the script.
I get the message <INFO> User data are stored in /etc/iRedMail-0.5.1/tools/mailboxes.csv.ldif, you can verify it before import it.
After this, "Prompt to import user data." section of the script is not getting executed. I dont get the prompt "Would you like to import them now?"

I am pasting few lines under "# Prompt to import user data." section. Please let me know if something is wrong here. Sorry, I am poor in scripting.

#Prompt to import user data.
'''
Would you like to import them now?""" % (ldif_file)
answer = raw_input('[Y|n] ').lower().strip()
if answer == '' or answer == 'y':
        #Import data.
        conn = ldap.initialize(LDAP_URI)
        conn.set_option(ldap.OPT_PROTOCO_VERSION, 3)
        conn.bind_s(BINDDN, BINDPW)
        conn.unbind()
else:
      pass

Sorted it out.
Mailbox size was set to 20bytes instead of 20MB.
Apologies for posting this because of a stupid mistake.
