    HI,

    We're getting a strange problem with some accounts no longer being able to check their email through Pop3 - the password is getting rejected. Checking via webmail is working using the same details.

    For users which have separate email addresses set up, these are working. It's just the default one where the username is just the username without the domain.

    Any suggestions? Are POP3 account passwords etc stored somewhere else on the server? If so, can anyone tell me where I should start looking?

    Many thanks.

    Mav.

    do you have the "prevent POP3 flood" checked in the settings?

    No, I don't. I should also have mentioned that this problem started after upgrading to WHM/Cpanel 6.2.0-R18.

    I notice that there is another active thread on a similar problem "Email account not working, hangs when checking".

    shell into your box and run /scripts/upcp and you should be fine.

    (Solved the issue for me)

    Do the following

    ps -ax and see if there is a cppop running or ipop3d daemon.

    If it is ipop3d kill it and then go to /etc/xinetd.d and remove ipop3d from it.

    then run the cppop daemon which should be in
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/cppop
