    Has anyone else seen this error. Suddenly several of my customers are getting it and they cannot check their email due to password rejections.

    What are the permissions on the socket file here:


    # ls -l /var/spool/authdaemon/socket

    This should resolve the problem.

    Code:
    chgrp mail /var/spool/authdaemon

    im having the same issue.

    /var/spool/authdaemon already belongs to mail group - so that is not the issue.

    There are multiple reasons this error might occur on a machine. There are two prior requests in this thread that a ticket should be opened if the suggested resolutions do not work for you due to the complexity of the issue. As such, please submit a ticket to us and provide the ticket number here for better tracking.
