I have a problem w/ dovecot

[private/dovecot-lmtp]: No such file or directory)



[SOLVED] It seems this entry only in /etc/postfix/main.cf applies to Ubuntu/Debian systems.

virtual_transport = lmtp:unix:private/dovecot-lmtp 

change in

virtual_transport = dovecot

I know it's a very old post, but I had the same problem today, and I can't find the right solution, but a lot of "tips&tricks" :)

I solved myself:

  • Ubuntu Server 14.04
  • Modoboa 1.6.0
  • Postfix, Dovecot, ecc..

The problem was in the file /etc/dovecot/local.conf in the line protocols there was no LMTP protocol listed so adding LMTP and restarting Dovecot solved my problem.


protocols = imap


protocols = imap lmtp
