password not taking on first try for new users

    When I create a new user in a domain (email acct.), pop doesn't authenticate with the password.

    If I then reset the password, POP properly authenticates with the password.

    So, it seems the password is not set correctly when I first create an email account. Any ideas?

    # cat /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/|grep hash
    $go_info["server"]["password_hash"] = 'md5'; // 'crypt' = crypt; 'md5' = crypt-md5

    Please be a bit patient, it may take some time until the password is written to disk.

    I never had to enter a password twice on my ispconfig systems.

    It shouldn't take more than half a second for it to write. Its in the passwd file, not the database.

    Strange, I waited 10 seconds this time and it worked. I guess I'm just too quick :)

    I'am one af the authors of ISPConfig, so I know what I'am talking about ;) The writing of the password takes maybe a millisecond, but the batch job to change the configuration is not run instantly.

    That makes sense. Thanks.
