    About a week ago, users can no longer use POP before SMTP authentication on my server. This has caused a lot of problems. I do not remember changing any settings in WHM, but I suppose it is possible since my short term memory isn't too great. Anyone have an idea as to what may cause Exim to stop allowing POP before SMTP? Regular SMTP authentication still works.

    It happened on my accounts also (reseller) with the only change that I noted was the update to version 9.9.9 C113 about the same time. I noted the update on the 6th and the problem on the 7th.

    I did note that it did not affect email sent to other accounts on the same server, just accounts off the server (AOL and Yahoo)

    the issue is that syslog is not running
    /etc/init.d/syslog restart
    that will fix it.
