Unable to change Password on Webmail due to com class error

Post by abhishek4joy » 2012-10-18 11:17

Hi all,

I have installed PHP and configured Squirell mail as the Webmail client.
I have even enabled the Hmail server password change plugin for Squirell mail.
Every thing works fine but when i try to change the password It gives the following error:
COM class is not available. Password can be changed only on Windows servers.
I have even enabled com.allow_dcom = true in php.ini

I am using Windows server 2008.
Hmail server : 5.3.3
Squirell mail : 1.4.22
Php version: 5.3.17

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,
Abhishek.G

If your webmail software is not on same physical server as hmailserver, then it needs to be. (I think)

Make sure you have changed the correct php.ini and also restart IIS to make sure php.ini is read. Also read this
