How should I create an email account?

ricky.breaky
Dear my friends....

I am still a newbie in postfix. I have installed the postgres and
cyrus and they run properly:
"
sussy:/boot/grub # rcpostfix status
Checking for service Postfix: running
sussy:/boot/grub # rccyrus status
Checking for service IMAP/POP3 (cyrus-imapd): running
sussy:/boot/grub #
".

I've checked my firewall and lookslike TCP Portnumber 25 and 110 are
open already:
"
[ricky@mandreev ~]$ nmap -PN mygoogle.com

Starting Nmap 4.76 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2009-09-30 03:37 WIT
Interesting ports on 202-127-97-122.triplegate.net.id (202.127.97.122):
Not shown: 987 filtered ports
PORT     STATE  SERVICE
22/tcp   open  ssh
25/tcp   open  smtp
80/tcp   open  http
110/tcp  open  pop3
143/tcp  open  imap
389/tcp  open  ldap
3306/tcp open  mysql
5432/tcp open  postgresql
5989/tcp open  unknown
".

Now, I want to create the email account but I still don't understand
what is actually the email account in postfix? Is it a user account?
How can I create that? How is the syntax of command?

Please tell me.

Thank you very much in advance.

It can be. It can also be a virtual mailbox (see [1]).

Frankly, if you don't even know how to create a user account, you
shouldn't be running a server. Period.

Get some basic documentation on whatever operating system you're
running, and read that thoroughly before proceeding any further.

Sorry if I sound harsh here, but we already have enough bots on the
Internet as it is. There's no need for any further contribution.

Please reread the reply you were given. While I understand that you
didn't like the tone of it, Ansgar did give you as much on-topic
information as is possible. You got a pointer to the keywords you
should find in the VIRTUAL_README, along with a Web link thereto.

I will echo Ansgar's sentiments as well. I regret the harshness of
tone, but I don't know how you could get very far not knowing the
answer to your question. If you didn't set it up with user accounts,
how could you have tested Cyrus IMAP? You said it was working. What
does that mean?

If you do manage to come up with a real Postfix question in the
future, please see this before posting again:
    http://www.postfix.org/DEBUG_README.html#mail
That way, you can give the list a smart question and hope for an
informed answer.

BTW, VIRTUAL_README.html#local_vs_database has another important bit
of advice, which will help you understand the difference between
Postfix issues and PostgreSQL issues.

Parse error at unknown token: synistic.

Not to pile on here but a user acct is a mail acct at the simplest  
level. You're overthinking it if you think there is something  
different about postfix vs any other email system.

I don't think anyone on this list is deliberately hostile or bad-
tempered but this kind of question is far too basic to expect anything  
more than a brusque RTFM.

4. I've opened TCP Port number 25 and 110 on my SuSEfirewall2:

5. In my understanding after I read postfix book, the user mailbox of
an email account is the mailbox of the linux account. So the mailbox of
'mail' uses is the same as which the Postfix access:
"
sussy:/etc/postfix # mail
No mail for root
".
6. But if I try to access the pop3 email account of mail.mygoogle.com
than my email client (evolution) always prompting for password although
I've typed-in the password of linux userlogin where my Postfix and
Cyrus reside. It means automatically the useraccount of linux account
and the Postfix email account are in separated boxes.
So in my conclusion, Postfix uses separated (another) mailbox for an
email account. CMIIW.

Now my question is: How can I created a user account (or email account)
of Postfix?

Thank you very much in advance.

ps. I am sorry about the incidence where I was involved.

We prefer 'postconf -n' to cut out problems and for you to see obvious
errors.

This shows you are using Virtual Mailboxes (possibly with the
unsupported VDA patch).
If your domain is in the mysql-virtual_domains.cf map, then you must
MySQL to create users.
Any mail gets stored in /var/vmail
Since this is of your own design (or copy/paste), we cannot support
every single virutal mailbox setup.
Please see: http://www.postfix.org/VIRTUAL_README.html for a background.

Cyrus IMAP/POP questions should be taken to their mail list.

This is true if using the local transport.  You are using virtual mailboxes.

Postfix only transfers email.
It does not create users nor display email.

Where are the logs of a successful or failed attempt?

Usually using useradd or if you are using virtual mailbox, then there is
another way that depends on configuration.

This is a bit offtopic (sorry about that), but maybe you need to switch
cyrus to dovecot, it can make you life much easier. If you really want
to keep cyrus, you need really do the rtfm in the long way.

Dear my friend, Eero....

You are right. Thank you very much. I have 1 step ahead although I
still have problem. I can get the content of incoming email but I can't
sending email.

I use OpenSuSE 11.1, KMail and DoveCot version:
"
sussy:/etc/ssl/certs # dovecot --version
1.1.7
".

This is the configuration of my DoveCot:
"
sussy:/etc/ssl/certs # dovecot -n
# 1.1.7: /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
# OS: Linux 2.6.27.29-0.1-default i686 openSUSE 11.1 (i586)
base_dir: /var/run/dovecot/
log_path: /var/log/dovecot.log
protocols: imap imaps pop3
listen(default): *
listen(imap): *
listen(pop3): *:110
ssl_disable: yes
disable_plaintext_auth: no
login_dir: /var/run/dovecot//login
login_executable(default): /usr/lib/dovecot/imap-login
login_executable(imap): /usr/lib/dovecot/imap-login
login_executable(pop3): /usr/lib/dovecot/pop3-login
login_greeting: Dovecot of MyGoogle.Com ready.
mail_executable(default): /usr/lib/dovecot/imap
mail_executable(imap): /usr/lib/dovecot/imap
mail_executable(pop3): /usr/lib/dovecot/pop3
mail_plugin_dir(default): /usr/lib/dovecot/modules/imap
mail_plugin_dir(imap): /usr/lib/dovecot/modules/imap
mail_plugin_dir(pop3): /usr/lib/dovecot/modules/pop3
auth default:
  debug_passwords: yes
  passdb:
    driver: pam
  userdb:
    driver: passwd
".

I have created local linux user account on my Postfix+DoveCot server. I
also can access the content of my mailbox from my KMail. I am so happy
but once I try to send email (testing the smtp) than I realize that I
can't send an email from my email client (KMail).

I use this setting on my email client:
1. 'incoming mailserver' == 'outgoing mailserver' ==
'mail.mygoogle.com' (pseudonome). Also username and password are all the
same between incoming/outgoing mailserver, namely the local userlogin of
LINUX. As the username, I put 'ricky' (but not '[hidden email]').
2. smtp authentication: No encryption and plaintext.

The error message on my KMail is:
"
Sending failed:
Your SMTP server does not support The server responded: "5.7.8 Error:
authentication failed: generic failure". Choose a different
authentication method. The server responded: "5.7.8 Error:
authentication failed: generic failure" The message will stay in the
'outbox' folder until you either fix the problem (e.g. a broken
address) or remove the message from the 'outbox' folder. The following
transport was used: mygoogle.com Do you want me to continue sending
the remaining messages?
"

and also:
"
Sending failed:
Your SMTP server does not support The server responded: "5.7.8 Error:
authentication failed: generic failure". Choose a different
authentication method. The server responded: "5.7.8 Error:
authentication failed: generic failure" The message will stay in the
'outbox' folder until you either fix the problem (e.g. a broken
address) or remove the message from the 'outbox' folder. The following
transport was used: mygoogle.com
".

I'm stucked again. Please help me. Could you tell me where my mistake,
please?

Thank you very much in advance.

Pasting the corresponding postfix/smtpd log entries for this transaction
would be very helpful.  And please repaste the log entries above without
redacting or obfuscating the hostnames.  You're showing a TLD above
which should be a hostname, not a TLD.  We need to see what's actually
going on in order to help you (or, at least I do).

please, do not obfuscate hostnames, also postfix -n is needed and
logfiles from postfix server.

I think you should try to use 127.0.0.1 as smtp server and without any
encryptions to test.

On normal operations postfix and dovecot works from scratch. ( on
advanced you need to do some modifications)

At least your mailserver is not open relay.. looks like something is
really wrong with your config.

Well, default config on suse? is really messy, maybe you can take basic
config from postfix and start with it?
