>Cyrus IMAP on Hardy Heron

>So you’ve just installed cyrus imap on Hardy Heron and you can’t seem to connect. You try a test telnet session and get


icottee@ijcdev:~$ telnet localhost 143
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
* BYE Fatal error: can't write proc file
Connection closed by foreign host.

Take a look in /var/log/mail.err and you’ll see stuff like

The solution is simple


chown -R cyrus /var/lib/cyrus

I’d give cyrus a restart after that as well.

    “The solution is simple”

    I half expected to see following:

  2. >Thanks, the post was very useful.
    Suggestion: Change the group also

    chown -R cyrus:mail /var/lib/cyrus

  3. >Also I needed to do:

    chown -R cyrus:mail /var/spool/sieve/

    in order to use avelsieve through squirrelmail.
