I've closed the browser and cleared cache and cookies (It's FF 45
ESR). And it's worked.

Especially for it to appear in the horde.log

Thanks.

Hi

I'm having a bizarre issue - I don't think it's in the code, but I'd
appreciate some guidance as to where it could be.

This morning when I logged in, I got the Horde Portal (as always) and
when clicking on the Mail link, I got a white screen with
Authentication Failed and some logs.

My first though was that there was an update (I do a pull from git
every Sunday) that required a backend change. I wasn't able to find
any commit that looked like changed something and when I returned to
the portal and the config, all the apps were current, all the DB
schemas were current, etc.

The Horde log has these line in though every time I try to access
webmail.example.net/imp

2016-07-04T07:50:45+00:00 ERR: HORDE-BETA [imp] Authentication failed.
[pid 20861 on line 720 of "/usr/share/git-horde5/imp/lib/Imap.php"]
2016-07-04T07:50:45+00:00 EMERG: HORDE-BETA Authentication failed.
[pid 20861 on line 1678 of
"/usr/share/git-horde5/framework/Core/lib/Horde/Registry.php"]

However, if I manually change the URL to webmail.example.net/kronolith
(for example), I am logged in and able to see my calendar. ActiveSync
is also working with no issues.

Now comes the weirdness.. If I log in with a different browser, or an
incognito window - then after reaching the portal and clicking the
mail link, I am taken to imp as normal.



Why would imp authenticate in an incognito window/different browser,
but not otherwise? And the authentication which is an MySQL call
against using the same credentials as the imap/mail server?
