    Hi All,

    Since the upgrade to C92 neither of our servers are able to successfully change POP3 passwords.

    The page does not give any error, but the new password does not work from pop3 or imap or webmail auth.

    Any ideas?

    Check the error logs at /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log.

    Is the problem is for all the domains on the server or just for a single domain?

    Also check the ownership of the shadow file for the email account in question. The path to the shadow file is :- /home/username/mail/domainname/emailaccount/

    Still not working? This has been a problem on and off for about 3yrs. Wonder when they will get it together! :mad: How hard is it to fix this issue for once and for all? Once its fixed how can it be broken again unless the routine is continually touched and messed with. I will never know how they can screw up the change password funtion time and time again. Its amazing if you ask me. If it works, dont touch it! :rolleyes:

    Nothing in the log file

    I have chgrp on a couple of the folders under the mailbox to match a newly created user.

    Still to no avail...
