Subject: problem with postfix + cyrus-imapd
From: John xing (jxingmail.com)
Date: Mon Dec 11 2000 - 15:39:29 CST


I tried to make postfix (20001030) and cyrus-imapd (2.0.7) work together
on a single host (Redhat 7.0). So far, everything looks fine, except that:
a cyrus-imapd user must also be created as unix user
in order to have mails delivered to that user's mail box in cyrus mail
This defeated one of the important purposes to use cyrus-imapd.

The error I got in /var/log/maillog is:
Dec 11 11:28:20 eyre postfix/local[5948]: AE77318D02:
to=<tryeyre.example.com>, relay=local, delay=1224, status=bounced (unknown
user: "try")
Here user 'try' is a cyrus-imapd user, but not a unix user.
If I make 'try' a unix user, the problem will be gone.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.


List below are configurations in my setup.

(1) /etc/postfix/main.cf:

queue_directory = /var/spool/postfix
command_directory = /usr/sbin
daemon_directory = /usr/libexec/postfix
mail_owner = postfix
myhostname = eyre.example.com
myorigin = $myhostname
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain
alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/aliases
alias_database = hash:/etc/postfix/aliases
mailbox_transport = cyrus
local_destination_concurrency_limit = 2
default_destination_concurrency_limit = 10
debug_peer_level = 2
debugger_command =
xxgdb $daemon_directory/$process_name $process_id & sleep 5

(2) /etc/postfix/master.cf have this line:
cyrus unix - n n - - pipe
flags=R user=cyrus argv=/usr/cyrus/bin/deliver -e -m ${extension} ${user}

(3) /etc/postfix/aliases has this line
root: doe
where 'doe' is both a unix and cyrus-imapd user.
And it will receive mails for root and root's aliases.
