I am trying to login to my mailbox, but getting the following error:

Err login

Also I found error message in the /usr/local/psa/var/log/maillog on the Postfix node:

imapd-ssl: IMAP connect from @ chdir "/var/qmail/mailnames/": Permission denied

I noticed that incorrect owner is set:

# ls -la  /var/qmail/mailnames/
drwx------ 5     399     399 4096 Oct 28 22:26 user1


The issue is caused by incorrect permissions for the mail user folder.


Set correct permissions to fix the issue:

# chown -R popuser:popuser /var/qmail/mailnames/
drwx------  5 popuser popuser 4096 Oct 28 22:26 user1
