Whilst away, my mail server died due to an extended power outage.
After rebooting, everything seems to work OK (i.e. no major filesystem
damage) except that I can no longer connect to my mail server using
thunderbird (on another machine on the same LAN).
The errors in /var/log/sendmail are:
Jul 31 16:58:58 machinenamehere dovecot: imap(userx): Error: User
initialization failed: Namespace '': Mail storage autodetection failed with
Jul 31 16:58:58 machinenamehere dovecot: imap: Error: Invalid user
settings. Refer to server log for more information.
I have no idea what server log this refers to, there is no 'dovecot' in
/var/log and no reference
to a log file in /usr/local/etc/dovecot/*
Google searches on this error message don't turn up anything exactly
all results are from 5 years ago on linux, anyway.
