    Hi!
    I've setup a domain in WHM: www-hosting.com. I added a account there: admin@www-hosting.com and tried to send a email (SMTP auth is on). My mail program asked me to enter the password for: admin+www-hosting.com, so I entered it. But the server said, that either my username is wrong or my password. Why can't I send mail? Why can't I authenticate?
    :confused:

    PS. Exim.conf = http://www.amsterdam.pl/exim.txt

    Are you able to send mail using the main account username?

    username: admin@www-hosting.com
    pass: respective pass.

    if that is not taken; then i guess /home/username/etc/shadow is corrupted.

    try resetting the password again.
