    Well, let me start off by saying i got a new server(CentOS), i copied all the accounts from my old server (FreeBSD), i copied all of my accounts over to the new server, now the only issue im having is the email accounts wont let me log in, its telling me wrong login and password, even if i make a new account same thing, but when i goto domain/webmail i can login, but then when i click on horde or squirrel mail it says failed login

    i have checked the mail logs, it just says bad login, all of the domains are listed in /etc/localdomains

    I am logging in with username@domain.com and password.

    If anyone is willing to try and help me through this Please, I am dieing without the email

    Did you try to restart the services ? I had the very same issue the other day and a service exim restart or service cpanel restart (hum... don't remember :confused: ) fixed it.

    Good luck :)

    Run:

    #/scripts/resethorde

    It should resolve the issue.

    We are having the same problems SUDDENLY when we upgraded cpanel to the latest release build.

    Now, webmail is working fine but when we try to use smtp & pop, we get:

    1. pop: LOGIN FAILED
    2. smtp : Error 535 BAD AUTHENTICATION DATA

    Tried updating exin, still having same issue.

    Any ideas?

    See if you have popa3ds running. if so, kill and disable it and restart pop.

    /etc/xinetd.d/popa3ds

    I have the same problem, and tried to follow your advice.

    Unfortunately I can't kill the popa3ds process, as the PID's change the whole time:

    Code:
    root@vps [/var/named]# ps ax| grep popa3ds
    15641 pts/3    S+     0:00 grep popa3ds
    root@vps [/var/named]# ps ax| grep popa3ds
    15702 pts/3    S+     0:00 grep popa3ds
    root@vps [/var/named]# ps ax| grep popa3ds
    15731 pts/3    S+     0:00 grep popa3ds
    
    So, how did you fix the problem, exactly?

    1. Look for any files beginning with pop3* under /etc/xinetd.d/
    2. Modify the files and set

    disable = yes

    Save the modification and then restart EXIM/SERVER.

    And I thought you were supposed to be using your fingers to type and not your head?

    Emai Login Problems with Xinetd.d

    I have the same problem as the user above. I have a new CentOS 4.4 Dedicated Server and I have been unable to login into transferred email accounts or new email accounts.

    I used ps and it showed that the popa3ds service was running, but like the user above, it's PID changes every time ps is called (I don't know if this is normal or not).

    If someone could point out whether I need to create some files, delete something, or modify something it'd definitely be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    -Omar

    Restart from WHM

    Hi, I had a similar problem accessing via POP (both from Evolution and webmail clients Horde and Squirrelmail) and didn't have files starting with pop3 in /etc/xinetd.d.

    I fixed the problem just by visiting WHM > Restart Services > POP3 Server and restarting POP3.

    Try this from shell:

    Code:
    lsof -n | grep TCP | grep pop3
    
    This will tell you what running program has TCP port 110 (pop3) opened

    Then, we'll all know what program you may need to shut down and restart (or shut down and disable).
