Hello All,

In v76 we found that updates can break dovecot if the configuration is customized. This includes customizations done in supported manner using our configuration templating system. This has resulted in
Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/bin/dovecot-auth
being removed causing login failure on mail clients as well as webmail.

The only current known workaround is to do the following:

Move/Rename
Code:
/var/cpanel/templates/dovecot2.2/main.local
then run
Code:
/scripts/builddovecotconf
and restart dovecot by running the following:
Code:
/scripts/restartsrv_dovecot
We'll update this thread with more information and the status of the case when available.

Thanks!

Hello,

This is solved in 76.0.2:

Fixed case CPANEL-23589: Invalidate local dovecot configs containing references to the deprecated dovecot-wrap binary.

Thanks!
