I have a problem with the email accounts .. All of it doesnt work when i try to check them on microsoft outlook .. i'm using a whm/cpanel on a VPS from godaddy. When ever, i try to "Send & Receive" emails, i'll be prompted for the user and pass. Even when i've entered the correct one, i'll still be prompted again. I believe its one of the settings in my whm/cpanel as i have no problems with the other email accounts that i'm using from a different shared host.
I've been concerned that my cPanel email address on my dedicated server hasn't been receiving emails. This was confirmed when an email sent by request from a friend did not arrive. The address is fosterd(***at***)pcfastlane.com if anyone would like to send me a test email.
What are the steps I can take to see if my cPanel email software is running correctly? I have already looked into my mail statistics, and it seems as though there are messages not being delivered, a fair amount which seem to be spam, but others that may not be.
My provider is using mailfoundry for spam filtering.. but I used IMAP (stored on server) for email.. my problem is that I'm also using a catch-all address and I make up random email names for sites I go to, to check for spam on the incoming side..
I setup filters in Cpanel to remove the selected spam or emails I don't wish to recieve.. but they don't seem to remove themselves.. it could just be a setup problem or it could be the mailfoundry.. not sure..
Here's the settings I have in cpanel (I just altered the name) is this the right setting.. or does it go elsewhere?
On my cpanel server, the main account catch-all is full of crap emails. So many that when I try to log into it with horde/squirrel it just times out. How can I clear the mailbox out? I tried connecting too it from outlook express and it connects but doesnt download any of the emails. This is the main email account that cpanel automatically creates for the account.
I have a VPS that runs cPanel/WHM and have been receiving a few enquiries where clients want to move only their email hosting to me. Most of them have small, static, web sites and seem happy with that.
Is this possible? If yes, I would appreciate some pointers on how to go about setting it up.
I just got a new vps running virtuozzo with cpanel/whm. I have no plans on ever using email on this server. What's the best way to turn all of it off from whm/cpanel and is it worth doing to speed up the server?
I am running on my VPS the WHM 11.11.0 cPanel 11.15.0-R17853 (Release version), I have noticed that I can't delete one of the Email Forwarders which is forward the emails to pipe program (see the attached image). I have tried to restart cPanel services & delete again, no luck.
Could some one point where is located the file, to overwrite it manually, please?
I have a domain hosted which is the primary domain with all its file hosted, it also has its own email accounts setup.
I now have another domain, i want to make the new domain the primary domain for the account which is hosting my website and the previous domain to be parked on top of it - this is with the use of cPanel.
Now from what ive experienced i should be able to use and setup email accounts from within cPanel from both domains.
This is my question.
The previous domain already has email accounts setup, if i make the switch and make it a parked domain onto the new primary domain will i still be able to retain the same email accounts/passwords/email?
e.g. if i have email@[url]after the switch i want email@[url]to be under the new primary account[url]
And now after creating a Joomla! site for a school that will be moving to my server from a local small isp that doesn't have a control panel (just a screen to allow users to set-up their email name and pwd) I'm stuck with trying to figure out how to set up their email accounts with their current password.
There are about 40 accounts that I can add manually, but when I change the nameservers, these teachers and staff are going to be at a loss as what to do; like I am at the moment.
I installed RoundCube through cPanel and it won't delete emails. I don't get any error messages or anything. When in Roundmail I select the email to delete and then hit the delete icon or drag to the trash folder it disappears, but when i log back in or click on the inbox again it comes back. Don't know if this is part of the same problem but i also can't access created folders. It shows the folder on the left but when i click on it nothing happens. I have a feeling this is a permissions problem but i can't find the issue. Anyone have any recommendation to try?
I have read alot of forums that say to enable the create folders option in the config file, it is enabled and i still have the same issues.
Is anyone successfully using cPanel with smtp port 587 and have a working email account?
After deciding that Plesk wasn't for me due to the lack of reference material in this and other forums, I had my hosting company, ServInt, delete my old vps and install a new one with cPanel.
Everything went fine until I configured my email. Just like with Plesk, I cannot access the smtp server via Outlook. I can ping it successfully, but it either terminates the connection or doesn't recognize the correct user name and password. With Plesk, it was a simple matter of enabling the use of port 587.
Not so with cPanel, at least for me. Even though the Exim service is enabled and another instance is enabled on port 587, I still can't connect. Thought it might be CFS, which is new to me with this install, so made sure it was disabled. Opened up a ticket with ServInt and even their techs can't get it functioning, so _they've_ opened up a ticket with cPanel.
Hence the title of this post, I can't beleive that I'm the only one whose had this problem before because blocking port 587 has been done by BellSouth/AT&T for many years now.
Nothing like having your company email down for over 6 hours to keep you up at night.
I have a W2k3 server with only one domain, it's manually configured in IIS and DNS locally on the box, and I don't want to put a mail server on the 2003 server. I also have a *nix box running cPanel. I was wondering if there is a way to just set my MX record to teh cPanel server so that I can get mail there.
The only problem is, I'd have to add the domain in cPanel, right? Is there going to be any issues with this if the DNS information for the windows domain isn't pointing to the cPanel server.
I ever seen a large mailbox be reliable, but now I have one that's mine and I have 8000 messages and 1.2gb. I can't even log into Horde webmail, if I use NeoMail its very slow, it takes 1 or 2 minutes to delete 100 messages or empty the trash. So I tried to setup the email account in Thunderbird and it times out. When I use POP3 thunderbird says it timed out but on the server I can still see the CPOP process for that user and it says it authenticating, if I try again to access it it says the mailbox lock is on, if I remove the lock same thing, no way to access it.
So any advise on how to access this large mailbox, perhaps there is a way to increase the timeouts?
Also whenever I try to do anything with the mailbox it increases the server load, from .20 or so it goes to 1, 2 even 3+
