    I hope that this question is OK in this forum.....It does regard CPanel indirectly....

    I have setup a vitual server under Linux, CPanel6 and using Exim and Horde
    IMP and would like for my clients to have access to the "Vacation Notices"
    module of IMP.
    However when they try to setup the vacation messaage by submitting their
    password it give s the following error:
    " Failure in modifying vacation notice: Could not login - check password!
    "

    I had a quick look at this and here is my findings:

    - Vacation works by creating or adding some commands into .forward email
    (for sendmail or qmail, and/or exim).
    - This .forward will be modified or created through FTP. It does this by
    trying to log in to the FTP server using the login credential of the logged
    in user. However I suspect because horde does not save the password in the
    session var, it must ask you for the password.
    - Because the user can't login to FTP it says "Could not login" at the top
    of the screen.
    This also explains why only the (Virtual Web Account) main user can perform
    the change since that user does have FTP login access.

    Is there an easy way to get this to work with out going through FTP? Any
    other suggestions would be appreciated!

    Roger..

    I have some customers using the "Auto Responder" feature in Cpanel for vacation messages and it seems to be working well... but it does require that they log into cpanel.

    I thought of the Auto-Responder but that requires me to set it up for them each time.

    I want each of my individual users to set their own messages.

    Thanks for the suggestion
