    I'm sure some have stumbled upon this error and googling it renders little help.
    It's been a couple of years since it happened to me but today the problem occurred.

    I (accidentatly) ran yum --disableexcludes=repoid --obsoletes update --skip-broken
    This updated dovecot or exim and that is a no-no on cpanel servers.
    Running /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms sorted out the rpms. However, the problem persited.

    So the fix: run /scripts/fixquotas (always good to run at times) then run
    /scripts/reset_mail_quotas_to_sane_values --force- --confirm
    Finally run 'Repair Mailbox Permissions" from WHM

    (Solved!)
