You might encounter such errors if your server is using courier/maildir and, for some odd reason, courier pop is not running and cppop is instead.

I found something like this happened one time when I restarted pop via WHM.

If you should be using courier/maildir, try running:

/scripts/courierup --force

Wow!

Forgive my enthusisasm - but this is the first script I have ever run via SSH. I have been trying to figure out this problem for two days on a new install.

I read this post and thought - I don't really understand what it means but - go for it.

I just about fell out of my chair when my Outlook express was able to connect to the server.

webignition: a huge thanks. Not entirely sure what I just did - but it worked!!

Cheers

Forgive the second post - but this also seemed to fix my webmail functions, which were not working...

'-ERR Authentication failed (bad password?)'
