Fresh Debian 8 install - imap and smtp issues

Postby gbr » Sat Jun 25, 2016 8:50 pm


I just did a fresh install on Debian 8, and I'm trying to connect Thunderbird via IMAP and SMTP. According to the docs at, I shouldn't have to configure Dovecot or Postfix.

The issue I'm having is that I can't connect via IMAP or SMTP, I always get authorization errors. I haven't even tried Caldav or Carddav yet.

Have the instructions changed recently?


ps: I'd really love to have PostFix, Dovecot, and Groupoffice do all auth via Active Directory, but I can't seem to find a complete set of docs.
