    Hey everybody,

    I must be doing something wrong, I've setup the Debian Sarge following the instructions on this site. After that I've succesfully installed ISPConfig. When that was done I installed the webmail package.

    Now when I want to login as user web2_m1 using webmail, it failed. I also tried the e-mail address ([email protected]) but I get the same error. Am I doing something wrong? Do I need to setup the webmail, if so how can I do this?

    Thanks in advance,

    Regards, Jeroen.

    Which error do you get? You must send an email to the account before you can use pop3. Webmail uses pop3 to login to the account and it might fail if the account has not got at least one email.

    Hi and thanks for your quick reply. I've sent an e-mail to this account but I still can't login, getting this message:

    For webmail, you must use the email address to log in, not the username.
    And as lerra suggested, what's in the mail log?
