Mail-server dovecot auth gives fail on passdb (shadow)

Hi all, I have a question about Mail-Server, I have setup the mail server with default configuration.
I would like to connect to it using imap (but pop3 would also be ok).
However every attempt from a mail client (I use Outlook) gives error in looking up the users.
I think I have the MX records setup correctly to my own domain.
Also attempts with telnet to login are not successful, it fails by the auth process on passdb.

The default configuration, should use the general users identified on the NAS, that would be allright for my situation.
It looks asif the shadow parameter in the dovecot.conf is not working well.

Is it correct that nowhere a mail database is maintained (or can't I find it) with inbox, sent, draft, etc?
I also added "args = blocking=no" to the passdb array, but no difference.

I could really use some help, since I am struggling with this for days now... :roll:

Brgds,
Kees
