    After creating a email adress I can't login to it. I always get "Error: Password error: Bad login". Other Email address from other domains work.

    I deletet the user on the server under /var/mail as well as in the database under isp_isp_user and recreated it. But unfortunately with the same problem.

    I know that the mail does work because I can read the file with incoming mails on the Server using SSH.

    Any help apreciated.

    In which program do you get the error "Error: Password error: Bad login"?
    Did you get errors in the mail log?

    By the way, NEVER delete a mailuser manually in the ISPConfig database! Otherwise you will destroy the referential integrity of the database.

    I found out that the new user accounts are not written in /etc/shadow could that be the reason why I can't log in?

    ls -la /root/ispconfig
