    I updated to the latest version of cpanel and all of the sudden I can not access or send email. Roundcube reports connection to storage server failed, squirrel mail is a blank page and horrde 'Login failed because your username or password was entered incorrectly.' Does anyone know how to fix this. I have forced re-installs on all email clients, forced re-install on cpanel, fixed email permissions. nothing. any ideas?

    thanx

    Hello :)

    Are you only experiencing this problem with Webmail, or does it apply to email clients installed on your desktop as well? Do you notice any specific errors in the "/var/cpanel/roundcube/log/errors" file?

    Use the following commands to check if any partitions are at 100% usage:

    Code:
    df -h
    df -i
    Also, check to make sure IMAP is enabled in "WHM Home » Service Configuration » Service Manager".

    Thank you.

    the log says
    10-Jul-2013 21:02:15 +0400]: IMAP Error: Login failed for XXXXXXX from XX.XX.XXX.XXX. Could not connect to localhost:143: php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known in /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/roundcube/program/include/rcube_imap.php on line 191 (GET /cpsess6863819433/3rdparty/roundcube/index.php)

    I do not have any firewalls up. is that message saying i have 143 blocked for some reason?

    I found the problem

    /ect/hosts had a permission of 600. changed it to 644 works now unless this is a bad idea.

    Well done! No, I don't think its a bad idea as 644 are the recommended permissions on any file. Glad to hear that it is working now for you :)

    Yes, the default permissions on the /etc/hosts file is 0644 so that is a valid solution.

    Thank you.
