    When I ran up2date last night on my ES3 box I am now unable to send/recieve. Does anyone know how to fix this? I tried alternatives --set mta /usr/sbin/exim though that didn't work. Anyone have any idea's

    Thanks

    It appears that pop3 works just fine so it didn't break exim, it just broke the imapd. Getting these errors.

    imapd[1557]: command stream end of file, while
    reading line user

    anyone else have these type fo problems after the ES3 updates released last night?

    I have tried a number of things. I downgraded from edge to stable release. Didn't work.

    I ran /scripts/exim4 - no luck there either.

    mailperm - does not resolve the problem . . . eiter does ./fixeverything

    cPanel . . . do you have a fix?

    Okay the problem is that the rhn update overwrote the imapd configurations. I cannot use imap auth. This is the fix i used.

    cp /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/imapd /usr/sbin/
    /scripts/restartsrv imap

    That's exactly how to fix it as outlined in the following post:

    It appears the issue was actually that a bad CP 9.3 release (C2) allowed up2date to overwrite it (and was subsequently corrected in 9.3C4, though it didn't go back to fix those already impacted).

    Thanks dude.

    Worked fine on the sending part.

    I just seem to be still having some receiving problems :confused:


    Edit: All my mail seems to be going into the box where it stores mail that doesn't belong to a real address. :confused:

    After we had run the fix yesterday afternoon, everything worked fine, including receiving. Still working today.

    Did you make sure to restart imapd?
