You wrote that you can login. Why is that a problem?

Or do you mean you canNOT login?

If the latter, check to see if IMAP is running:

ps waux | grep -i imap

You probably either don't have dovecot installed or don't have it running. So try:


cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/
./build set dovecot yes
./build dovecot

It might also be related to http://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=243, http://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=18 (only if you don't have dovecot installed) or firewall.

If you can access IMAP from an external source but your squirrelmail and/or roundcube doesn't work, then you should start looking at your configs for those email packages or some config in your php. I believe they both use php sockets to access IMAP, have you disabled the socket functions in your php?
