    It seems that you have removed your /home/freepayd/etc dir or any of it's subdirs by wrong. Try restoring it from your backups.

    Hello :)

    Yes, it's possible that you or your client accidentally removed the /etc directory from the account when you were moving the directories around. Check to see if the following directory exists:

    /home/$username/etc

    If it does not exist, you will need to restore it from a backup because it includes files that are required for your email accounts.

    Thank you.
