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 -----Original Message----- From: xmail-boun...@xmailserver.org [mailto:xmail-boun...@xmailserver.org] On Behalf Of Ben Green Sent: 08 March 2013 19:28 To: XMail Users Mailing List Subject: Re: [xmail] User password 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. --- On Fri, 8/3/13, Barry Kavanagh <barry.kavan...@onaitech.com> wrote: > From: Barry Kavanagh <barry.kavan...@onaitech.com> > Subject: [xmail] User password > To: email@example.com > Date: Friday, 8 March, 2013, 14:00 > I have an old Xmail server running on > a Gentoo Vmware box with full root > access.I want to send a mail as user15 but can't remember the > password.I have very basic Linux :( I am trying to reset the password > for user15 > > I have tried entering say "user15" "XYZ" and saving the file but it > does not work. > > How do I successfully reset this Xmail user password when the server > has no X server and no web admin. > > _______________________________________________ > xmail mailing list > firstname.lastname@example.org > http://xmailserver.org/mailman/listinfo/xmail > _______________________________________________ xmail mailing list email@example.com http://xmailserver.org/mailman/listinfo/xmail _______________________________________________ xmail mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://xmailserver.org/mailman/listinfo/xmail
