check your /var/log/auth.log or /var/log/syslog for more info and post it here.

You need to capture the logs during an attempt to login in order for us to see any errors regarding the failure.

Ok let's try this way:

Open a shell and type

Code:
tail -f /var/log/auth.log
then open another shell and type

Code:
tail -f /var/log/syslog
Then try to login to your mail server. You will get your error.

Copy and paste the output of each shell into a note here.

Without more info your problem will never get solved.

Default check your passwords

I ran into this problem as well when i setup my server. Turned out to be a password problem. Login to phpmyadmin and reset the password so you know its correct and see if that will let you login. Normally the login failed messages have to do with passwords not being correct. Just another place to look at least ;-)
