Learn passwords was enabled. However, it should learn only the FIRST password entered for each account.... not multiple passwords for each account.
Right? It would seem logical that with learn-passwords, the first time i put in the password for [EMAIL PROTECTED], it "learns" that password. If I try to log into [EMAIL PROTECTED] with a different password, I should be rejected, as it "learned" the first password. --- Michael Bowe <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > I could be barking up the wrong tree here but... > > Perhaps did you configure vpopmail to "learn > passwords" ? > > It rings a bell for me that if you upgrade from an > v4.x vpopmail, and you > enable clear passwords in your v5.2 vpopmail, you > loose all your existing > passwords and the general way to recover from this > is to enable vpopmail's > "learn passwords" functionality > > This could explain why "any password works".
