Thread: OpenSUSE 11.4 imap logging

    Default OpenSUSE 11.4 imap logging

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to debug a problem I'm having setting up my android tablet to get mail from my OpenSUSE mailserver.

    The server is running OpenSUSE 11.4 x64, and has the stock imapd server that is run from xinetd and resides in /usr/sbin/imapd
    Running it from a shell prompt I get :

    "* OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4REV1 I18NLEVEL=1 LITERAL+ SASL-IR LOGIN-REFERRALS STARTTLS LOGINDISABLED] aurigae IMAP4rev1 2007e.404 at Mon, 31 Mar 2014 13:24:49 +0100 (BST)"

    Basically I want to turn on logging if it is possible so that I can work out what the client is trying to access.

    I have this working from my desktop computers (using Mozilla Thunderbird) using an imap directory of 'mail' but whenerver I try this on the android mail client it goes away checks it and then deletes the setting. Consequently it seems to try and check my entire /home directory tree and then crashes as I have a large amount of files / folders.

    I've also verified this with a test account that has few files in /home and that works as I would expect (except it still goes from the home folder and not the mail one).

    Does anyone know how to turn on logging or have any other hints that would help me solve this.

    Cheers.

    Phill.

    That might be the uw imap implementation. You should check it. I'ts
    configuration is very limited, but you should have some documentation on
    /usr/share/doc/packages/packagename. Sorry, I can not verify the exact
    package name.

    In Linux, all logs go to "/var/log/", and mail log should be "/var/log/mail"

    No, that can not be, if it is the uw-imap. You have to verify first what
    imapd server you are using.
