    I have CPanel/WHM setup on my server, Exim is running.

    I have setup an email account and it doesn't work when i try to connect to it using Outlook Express, It just won't accept the user name and password.

    When i try to read it via WebMail it doesn't accept the user name and password.

    I have tried a few different things and this just isn't working.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you,
    Chris Mayhew

    I have tried that and it doesn't work.

    I haven't actually changed any Exim or Mail settings since Managed.com setup my server with CPanel/WHM

    Nope, i am running Red Hat 9.

    According to Managed.com that is what you had to have to install CPanel/WHM

    Well, this might apply to some RH9 installs.

    Check and see if dovecot is running. If so, killall dovecot processes and restart cppop.

    I have just found out that my mates domain name can actually connect/send and receive email.

    But my domain will not connect no matter what i do.

    He actually is using a sub domain of my domain. :confused:

    It never hurts to try and rule out every possibility. Also, take a peek at your IP tables.

    Naturally I am assuming that your are NOT behind a firewall!

    I figured out what it was, i decided to re-add the CPanel account.

    And when trying to do that it complained about my Hostname being the same as the domain.

    So i changed the host name, added the account and guess what? EMail works.

    Thanks for your help. :)

    I'll be back if i have any more WHM/CPanel problems ;)
