Hey SiegeX,
Question, When I'm logged in as root and I start KDE I am able to set up an email account through mozilla mail but it always asks me for a password to get new email but wont accept it.
I was able to set up mozilla mail for a user but I had to tell it not to use passwords since sendmail is already configured to send the password that counts to my ISP, also I turned off the password for receiving mail to get it to work. But I don't seem to have that option when I'm logged in as root.
Is there some kind of block on root being able to check email through the web browsers?
Note: I am able to check mail as root with PINE.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be very helpful.
