Error: Webmail “User **** Is Not Authorized For ****”

You will receive an error when accessing Horde, RoundCube or SquirrelMail from webmail on a cPanel installed server.
It allows you to login. But, when you access specific email account, it shows this message/error.

' Error User is not authorized for Mail (Host: *.*.*.*)."

It usually happens when cpanel update has issue OR you migrate the account or server OR rebuild it.

Run force cpanel update :
/scripts/upcp --force
