me: you have something wrong in your server.
in your server console,
tail -f /var/log/syslog
then, re-try login

delete that email,
then, re-add it
keep console open

Guest: sorry to be a pain

Guest: i'll be right back .. gotta pop to the shop .. be back in 5 - 10 mins .. sorry
me: re-try login to webmail
now, it should be fixed
What I did: your /etc/postfix/main.cf was empty, i put a valid generic main.cf, then use ehcp->options->fix mail config, to make it suitable for your server.
put something in /etc/mailname
then restart postfix.
Guest: working .. thank you very much
me: your postfix was broken somehow.. i fixed that
Guest: thank you very much for all your help
me: ok. have nice days with ehcp.
see you, bye
