    Hi,

    recently imap stopped allowing users to login.
    imap itself is running just fine and accepts connections, but the problem is that no matter what you use to login imap always reports a:

    Code:
    Dec  1 18:29:22 servername imapd[13719]: Login failed user=user@domain.com auth=user@domain.com host=localhost [127.0.0.1]
    POP connections are working just fine, though.
    My guess would be that imap isn't able to verify the login info, so I checked all file & directory permissions and compared them with a working server, but they match.
    I upgraded to the latest version, ran horde, imap & updateuserdomains related scripts from /scripts/ and contacted CPanel support about it and so far all to no avail.

    Please let me know if you have an idea what might be going wrong here.

    Thanks.

    EDIT: just in case anyone else is experiencing the same issue:

    The problem was, that the CPanel imapd file got replaced by a different version and so caused the conflict.
    Simply copy the CPanel imapd over the system version and restart the xinetd, which will fix the issue:

    cp -f /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/imapd /usr/sbin/imapd
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd restart

    Any word on this? I believe I'm having the same issues, but I didn't try this fix because of the above error.

    Thanks!

    You could try:

    /scripts/upcp --force

    This worked for me on a similar issue.
