    POP does Authenticate but IMAP does!

    I am setting up a VPS / Linux server, created an account, and set up an email account. However, when I attempt to access the email account via. pop3, either the email account or pw is not accepted. However, I can access the same email account via. IMAP.

    Also, I can telenet into the pop3 system, but not log into the account, and I can access the account via. WEBMAIL.

    I set up the account with WHM/CPanel. Is there some required setting to activate or setup the pop3 system?

    Thanks

    When you try and login via POP3 what does tail -f /var/log/maillog show?

    When I attempt to log on via pop3, nothing shows up in the /var/log/maillog file. This file has other messages, but none that show any error.

    I am getting the following message:

    Oct 17 16:17:33 server pop3d: bind: Address already in use
    Oct 17 16:17:33 server pop3d-ssl: bind: Address already in use

    However, the pop3 server does respond to direct telnet requests and I can send it commands.

    That's odd... the failed login requests should show up.

    What do you get with:
    ps aux | grep auth

    When I do a "ps aux | grep auth", I get:

    Just a guess, but you could try converting to mail2dir by reading (carefully) the following thread:
