I am using outlook Express for my mails, The mail server is a Linux Redhat
7.3 box with Qmail and
When i try to connect to the mail server it pops-up the login window for
Username and passwd , i entered the correct login name and passwd but still
it does not accept it.
When i checked for the logs here is what it says :
Aug 29 20:38:26 eric ipop3d: pop3 service init from 126.96.36.199
Aug 29 20:38:31 eric ipop3d: Command stream end of file while reading
line firstname.lastname@example.org host=[188.8.131.52]
When i use Webmail (Sqwebmail) the same thing works fine !
Why POP3 is not allowing outlook to check the mails....
The error means that the TCP connection has broken or the user didn;t logged
out properly etc... also somebody said that might be a DOS attack but that
is not the case..
How do i use Outlook with Imap ?
Here is my Pop3 config i suppose this is right =>
[root@eric drive2]# cat /etc/xinetd.d/pop3s
# default: off
# description: The POP3S service allows remote users to access their mail \
# using an POP3 client with SSL support such as fetchmail.
disable = yes
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/ipop3d
log_on_success += HOST DURATION
log_on_failure += HOST
and pam.d is
[root@eric drive2]# cat /etc/pam.d/pop
auth required /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth
account required /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth
I also added the Entry in /etc/hosts.allow
I disabled pop3 and used Imap
Here is the Error Outlook gives
The server responded with an error. Account: 'mail.domain.com', Server: 'mail.domain.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '* OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4REV1 LOGIN-REFERRALS STARTTLS AUTH=LOGIN] [184.108.40.206] IMAP4rev1 2001.315rh at Sat, 30 Aug 2003 00:38:54 -0400 (EDT)', Port: 143, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC90
Somethign funny is happening since outlook seems to think it is still using pop3 "Protocol: POP3". I would double check your config and make sure you didn;t just change the port numbers. If that doesn't work then try with Mozilla or a different client.
