when i go to webmail.virtualservername i get login screen with default virtualservername use automatically displayed no password. what/where is the password. this is not obvious from anywhere in the virtualmin panel possibly a design flaw...

    When I try to login to Usermin from main virtualmin menu I get big red messge "An error occurred listing mail in this folder : Failed to connect to localhost:143 : Connection refused". This is the same error when I try to access mail via the URL.

    However from the Usermin menu route I am able to compose messages. I think this must be a bug.

    Seems like maybe your IMAP server isn't running?

    So have you tried logging in using the password selected when creating the domain?

    it is not accepting the password i entered, no password is displayed, and I cannot see where to change the password. where do i set the password? i have also tried adding a new user and logging in as the new user. no joy...

    What gets logged to /var/usermin/miniserv.error and /var/log/secure (or /var/log/authlog) when you try to login to Usermin?
