nail is not receiving mails


Hi,

i'm using "nail" to send emails, works great!

But receiving emails doesn't work...

My configuration in "/opt/etc/nail.rc":

Code:
set smtp=smtpmail.PROVIDER.DOMAIN
set smtp-auth-user=USERNAME@PROVIDER.DOMAIN
set smtp-auth-password=PASSWORD
set folder=pop3://USERNAME@popmail.PROVIDER.DOMAIN
set from=USERNAME@PROVIDER.DOMAIN
Every time i'm sending the command to receive mails i'm getting the following message:

Code:
#nail
No mail for admin
...even if there are messages in my inbox...

Am I missing some config-parameters or anything else?


Thanks in advance

Hmmm ... are you ever prompted to enter your password for the POP3 server? It sounds like nail isn't talking to POP3 correctly. I've never used it, though, so I'm not sure how to advise you further; you'll probably havce to check the docs for diagnosing POP3 connection issues.

No, i'm not prompt for a password. I already checked the man page, but I didn't find any config-parameter about a pop3-password (like smtp-auth-user, smtp-auth-password)...
