UebiMiau locks out after server receives email

    Like another user on here, I cannot receive email. I think it maybe a seperate issue though, because the mail is being delivered into the file, but UebiMiau locks up and wont let me in!

    I have setup a VPS server using the Perfect Debian 3.1 setup. Then installed ISPConfig. I have DNS configured for one domain at Everydns.net to point to my server. I created a site and a user, and from that user, sent an email to my standard gmail email address, which I received. I responded from there to test receiving email.

    Now when I try to login to UebiMiau it locks up for like a minute and I eventually get an error: "Login error - You cannot login with the username and password entered. Please check your username and password and try again."

    I am using the same username and password which worked the first time! I tried it with two seperate accounts and confirmed UebiMiau locks a user out up as soon as an email is received for a user.

    Mail is being put into /var/mail/web1_sbecker. The email is making it to the server, because I can see it in the file! But it seems that as soon as something is in the inbox, I can no longer login to UebiMiau.

    Here are the last few lines of my /var/log/mail.log

    Code:

    Also, I did not install Courier-IMAP/Courier-POP3, should I have done this?

    I would appreciate your help please!

    Please run
    Code:
    chmod 1777 /var/mail
    and try again.

    It works! I could smack myself, that seems so obvious. I'd just never seen chmod 1777 before. Thanks!
