Hello guys,

So I have this problem, suddenly the email logins stopped working... I can't even login trough the cPanel webmail feature from the Email Accounts section. I select roundcube and I get authentication error. I also can't login over IMAP. What could that be? Of course I tried rebooting and updating, it did not helped. Sample from the log in /var/log/maillog

Thanks

Hello @bbhsoft,

The output you provided looks to show the Chkservd login attempt for service monitoring as opposed to a manual authentication attempt. Could you let us know the output to /var/log/maillog and /var/log/exim_mainlog when the authentication attempt fails?

Also, please post the output from the following commands:

Code:
cat /usr/local/cpanel/version
 /scripts/restartsrv_dovecot --status
Thank you.
