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.

There was a problem logging into your mail server. Your User Name or Password was rejected. Server Response: '-ERR this user has no $HOME/Maildir'. (Account: 'xxx-xx', POP3 Server: 'www.mydomain.com', Error Number: 0x800ccc92).
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??

I got the same messages, on a VPS, so I hope it's normal
