      @Igaz,

      The ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem and ssl-snakeoil.key is created by ssl-cert for snakeoil user and should not be deleted:..

    Hi, I’m following this article to install mail server at work. I’m stuck at this step:

    nc localhost 143
    x1 LOGIN user pass
    the terminal replies: 
    x1 NO [AUTHENTICATIONFAILED] Authentication failed.
    

    But I am sure from user and pass, I created it from the guide, you used “Matie“, I user “imed”, username and password are the same.

    Any Idea?
