    Hello,
    I'm having trouble with setting up mail accounts. I get the following error when ANY account setup through WMH interface attempts to check (POP) email.

    I'm using the EXACT information provided in CPanel (Configure Mail Clients). There are no ip problems, all DNS resolves fine. I can send a message using MAIL command in SSH and it will drop into the proper "mail" qmail style directory. However when I send from another server, the mail is not delivered, and I am unable to get the POP clients to work, and SquirrelMail does not recognize the username or password either.

    Thanks for any help

    I think I solved the problem myself

    from an ssh shell as root user I ran the following script to fix the cppop problems

    /scripts/courierup --force


    Then went into WHM web interface and selected

    Service Configuration->Exim Configuration Editor

    and unchecked "Use callouts to verify the existance of email senders."

    I deleted all my Outlook POP accounts and set them up as IMAP


    Everything seems to be working fine. This is my first WHM server, so I'm wondering why the unchecking the "callouts" allows smtp to work??

    (sample)

    chattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device while reading flags on /usr/lib/courier-imap/man/man8/deliverquota.8.gz

    chattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device while reading flags on /usr/lib/courier-imap/man/man8/mkpop3dcert.8.gz

    chattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device while reading flags on /usr/lib/courier-imap/sbin/mkpop3dcert
    chattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device while reading flags on /usr/lib/courier-imap/sbin/pop3login
    chattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device while reading flags on /usr/lib/courier-imap/sbin/sharedindexinstall
    chattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device while reading flags on /usr/lib/courier-imap/sbin/sharedindexsplit
    chattr: Inappropriate ioctl for device while reading flags on /usr/lib/courier-imap/share

    Anyone?

    If you are on a VPS, I believe those ioctl messages are normal.

    Is there a /home/username/mail folder for this user?

    Go on, have a guess
    It's normal on a VPS because Virtuozzo haven't implements ACL support.
