Hi Ben,

I tried changing my password multiple times but it is just not working. I am
so frustrating right now. This is what I get from a packet analysis but I
know the password is correct!

Packet Trace

+OK <1362772686.1015...@target-domain.net> [XMail 1.22 POP3 Server] service
ready; Fri, 8 Mar 2013 19:58:06 -0000
USER use...@target-domain.net
+OK Password required for use...@target-domain.net
PASS user15
-ERR Invalid auth or access denied

Regards
Barry

Hello Barry,

If you have root access to the server why not just edit the "mailusers.tab"
file?

That file will be located in:

/var/MailRoot/

Normally, and find the line that looks a like this:

"mydomain.com"<TAB>"username"<TAB>"0401080c0b"<TAB>7<TAB>"usernamedirectory"
<TAB>"U"<NEWLINE>

The "0401080c0b" password is admin in plain text ;-)

Once you have done that you may need to restart xmail server... this should
do it:

/etc/init.d/xmail restart

Hope that helps :-)

Benjamin.
