    i've installed isp-config and got this problem about accessing e-mail account

    in i get 'Password error: Login failed' that's when i use web1_username as username. and when i use full e-mail as user name it's said wrong username, so i think it's has something to do with the password.

    when i try to access from outlook i keep getting username/password input box.

    i'm noob and don't know where to look, please help

    Ths correct. ISPConfig stores the passwords in /etc/passwd for security reasons and deletes it from the database after it has been written to /etc/passwd.

    It's /etc/shadow.
