    Spent a looong time figuring out what's wrong with my webmail. Tried doing updates again and again(its a new server btw). Realised in the end that 'AUTHENTICATE LOGIN failed'(from HORDE) only happens when i use a reseller login to access other accounts' webmail.

    Why is that so? :cool:

    For Security. :)

    Why would a Reseller by reading the eMail of their Clients anyway?

    You'll also find the same 'no login allowed' msg. when trying to view 'phpMyAdmin' if not using the actual account Owner's PW.

    Of course, if you're root you can just straight to the mail directories.
