    After upgrading to cPanel 9.9.2-S8n Neomail stopped running correctly.
    When anyone logs in they get this message:
    NEOMAIL ERROR
    Couldn't open!

    and that's it ... nothing further.
    Anyone experiencing the same behaviour?

    Thanks

    Check permission of the neomail files. That's usually a permissions issue.

    Dear,

    Make sure that your configurations are set right. Check your neomail configuration file neomail.conf.
    And check neomail.pl too.

    Regards,
    :)

    I finally found out what the problem was on my side.
    Our neomail.conf was chattr +i because we set up a different default language and attachment sizes.
    In previous versions, Neomail used /var/cpanel/neomail as the default session storing location.
    Newer versions now store sessions in /tmp.
    So cpanel was unable to overwrite my neomail.conf to reflect the new location (/tmp) and that broke everything ;)
    Took me some time to discover this and I had to modify the neomail code to find out where the problam was because Neomail never indicated it was failing in $neossessiondir.

    Hope this helps others

    Regards
