I just install THUNDERBIRD for my emai client.But it only can send mail
and cant received mail from any server.
i have create atleast 2 account , 1 is my email at my company and another is Gmail. But still same .
Evenif i can send mail with only 1 out going mail is my company SMTP server .
I still use Evolution mail client in fedora but it same ,cannot receive mail.
So how can i do to receive mail in inux.Im using fedora 6.0
Thanks for any comments
To receive mails using Evolution first you should know IP address of your POP or Imap server and username , password for your account.
If you have all this info. then In evolution goto tools->settings->add
Write your name and email id then mention server type POP or IMAP then type in IP address of your server and username.
Next time when you start the Evolution it will ask you password of your email account and if it is authenticated by server it will display your mail folders with mails.
Thanks for your reply
But my problem is onlu port 110 is closed when i scan by Nmap program. I know how to setup an account on client machine.
Now i want know that how can i open port 110 on my machine.
port 25 is for sendmail N i can send so why i need open again
anybody comment can help me open the port 110
Without any error messages all we can say is: something is wrong. For instance pine can be set into debug mode, do not know about mail clients you are using there. You need to find a way to get error messages.
my error message is " authorization failed " it seem my password was wrong but not like that.
i can receive my mail in WIndows with Password which i type in LInux but only get success in WinOS not in LinuxOS.
Im using Fedora core 6.0
I have try disable my email account from winOS. and recreate account in Linux but ..same result,cant received mail.
Now if i want read email with company account (POP3 server not support for Webmail, right?) ,i must switch to WInOS to received mail. In linux i can send mail to everywhere.
#sudo /sbin/iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp --sport 110 -m state --state ESTABLISHED
i havejust type above command but nothing is change
#nmap -p 110 localhost
