Running into the same error messages. running FBSD 6.4 with WHM 11.23.2 cPanel 11.23.6-S27698. I have ran /scripts/upcp --force also restart pop3 and imap with no luck! Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Hello,

I have already answered this question on another thread. Please try looking through threads before asking. Anyways, in a latest update in WHM it updates IMAP to a newer version, thus you need to enable IMAP in the 'IMAP Configuration' (in cPanel 11.24.x its now named 'Mailserver Configuration')

This does not help with anything in at least 2 cases i've seen so don't jump on people because they opened a new thread.. as many things don't work as posted. Some things work for some but not for all.



Check /etc/rc.conf for the following lines:

courier_imap_imapd_enable="YES"
courier_imap_imapd_ssl_enable="YES"
courier_authdaemond_enable="YES"

If this lines are not there or showing differently modify them or add them to look like that.

After that try and start/restart courier.

A note on the '--force' usage. That flag does not get propagated to all the scripts upcp calls, for example /scripts/courierup. Thus, if your goal is to force an update of courier, run

/scripts/courierup --force

As for the failures:

1. Is the Courier Port verified installed?
2. Anything logged to a system log?
3. What happens when you use the init script, rather than the restartsrv script?
4. What happens when you execute the imap binary directly?

Hello

add manually this lines to /etc/rc.conf
work fine for me,
os: freebsd6.3

courier_imap_imapd_enable="YES"
courier_imap_imapd_ssl_enable="YES"
courier_authdaemond_enable="YES"

Thanks You k3oni

i am having same problem, your advice did fixed my problem for some time but now its back.

i think i have to find other solution

edit: i found the problem it was due to my firewall blocking more then 100 connection and not due to something else.
