Dear GOD I am going insane! I have followed two tutorials so far, wiped my entire Debian install once, and this tutorial is the second that has failed to work correctly! When trying to authenticate with the secure pop3 server I get an error returned "-ERR: Login Failed" in Evolution. I checked the syslog and found out this is why: Code: Jun 11 17:04:53 toolbox pop3d-ssl: Connection, ip=[::ffff:192.168.0.6] Jun 11 17:04:53 toolbox authdaemond.mysql: failed to connect to mysql server (server=localhost, userid=mail_admin) Jun 11 17:04:58 toolbox pop3d-ssl: LOGIN FAILED, ip=[::ffff:192.168.0.6] Jun 11 17:05:00 toolbox pop3d-ssl: LOGOUT, ip=[::ffff:192.168.0.6] I have restarted mysql, ensured it is running by simply logging in with the mysql command, checked for whitespace in the authdmysql (or w/e) file... what is going on?? Please help; I was supposed to have this mail server up two days ago Thanks!
