    Hi there,

    I am having problem setting up mailbox for one of the domains, on server running latest Release.

    Basically, I am entering username and password, cPanel displays confirmation screen with username and password BUT page "Add/Remove accounts" does not show up any accounts (except main one).

    Now, users' folders are getting created in /mail folder. I have played with folder permissions, I have deleted it even completelly - error persists.

    Is there other configuration file, or place I can look into?

    Please suggest.

    Cretu

    look at ~username/etc/passwd file. See if the usernames are created over there with the access folders. If yes... let me know.

    linux-image,

    In matter of fact /etc was missing. and could not be recreated when account was re-established - strange.

    After todays' cpanel release upgrade I have attempted re-creating whole account and /etc folder got created correctly. I went trying setting up account and this time it worked!
