    Hello,

    when a user uses a wrong password for this email during login (webmail or pop3),
    is it logged somewhere? if yes, where is that log file?

    ( I did look inside exim_mainlog/exim_paniclog/exim_rejectlog but there is nothing about using wrong password there).

    Hello :)

    Yes, that is correct. Login attempts to webmail are stored in /usr/local/cpanel/logs/login_log. Note you will also see an entry in /var/log/maillog for POP3 login attempts.

    Thank you.
