    fixed...

    Figured out how to fix it. Log into CPANEL and go to manage accounts. Find the mail account that is not working and go to change password. You can even change the password to the same password.. it doesnt matter. But when you click save, it will work again.

    I found what the problem is, but do not know why /scripts/mailperm does not fix it.

    File "shadow" should be user.mail, and is user.user for owner group. /home/usernamer/etc AND /home/username/etc/domaim.name/

    Maybe some better programmer than me can find how to fix mailperm or write something that will fix problem.

    I think that a simple:

    # chown .mail /home/*/etc/*/shadow
    # chown .mail /home/*/etc/shadow*

    should fix it :)
