I have a VPS with WHM and cPanel installed, when I try to login to an email account I made in cPanel, I get this error message:-
POP3, Server Response: '-ERR Authentication failed (bad password?)'
. I can login to the main account for that cPanel account however with no problems.

I can also send mail from the created account with no problems.

Does anyone know how I could go about fixing this.

(Fedora 5)

Thanks in advanced,
Sam Millar.

Didn't work. :(

Surely FTP passwords have nothing to do with POP3 passwords?

Anyone else have a solution?

Please!:confused:

Couple questions for you.

1. Do you have root access to the box to run scripts? You can try running some fix scripts if you do.

2. Have you tried telneting to that pop3 server and logging in through the telnet session? There are many walkthroughs on the net on how to do this, just google it.

3. Are any other POP3 accounts having the same issue or is it just a specific account? If this is the case delete the account and recreate it. Also delete all of your temp files, including your temp internet files, on your PC. That will usually flush out any bad or garbled password files that are saved.

Hope one of these helps.
