    It appears since the update to CPanel 4.8.0 I'm getting these errors:
    -----------------------------------------------
    NEOMAIL ERROR

    Couldn't open /home/***/mail/***!
    -----------------------------------------------

    Anyone know the fix?
    CPanel version 4.8.0 - 11

    Thanks.

    Fixed it. The configuration directory was left behind.

    &could not open /home/hosting account/mail/email account&
    even if i run /scripts/mailperm will change perms to 0660 but i cannot use the email account.

    my client calls me everyday - everyday i send an email to that email addres, the account works just fine, the client downloads his email (the one i'm sending) and a couple of hours later.. he calls... my head spins

    Can you do a direcory list of /home/***/mail and /home/***/mail/*** and post it on here?

    error

    i was creating a new account and had the ssh opend. after the creation af the account, in the /home/account appeared a new directory called mail, with nothing in it.... I entered the cpnel for that account, gone to the email accounts admin, and just before creating a new email account i checked again in the /home/account... the &mail& directory wasn't there anymore. I created the account but the /mail didn't showed up.

    so i guess that is the problem... it cannot open /home/account/mail/email account cose there is no /mail .

    why is this happening?

    Are you saying that the mail directory disappeared when you logged on to cpanel?

    have you tried creating a dummy directory when the mail folder is available? This might prevent whatever might be removing the mail directory from doing it again.

    error

    If I create a directory within /mail the /mail will stay - but the error will persist. And I cannot create a directory everytime someone's creating a new account on the server...

    Me again,

    It wasn't a neomail error at all. When I edited the cpanel, on a page i left a delpop before the &html&. So when I was accessing that page all the email accounts were deleted.

    I tooked every page of cpanel and compare it with the original one. Lots of work for a small row i didn't see it :)
