Pop3 error


I have sendmail configured and I use Xinetd as a pop3 server.
Trying to connect via outlook, i get the message :

Server error:
ipop3d: relocation error: ipop3d: undefined symbol: krb5_kt_start_seq_get»

All the mails are in the mailbox but can't reach it...

How did you install your pop3 service? I recommend you compile it from source, and do a ./configure --help to see what you can do to disable kerberos.

If your distro is any Red Hat from 4.2 through 9.0, the pop server that comes with the distribution (and installs via rpm) works fine. I have used all of them without problems.

You may have your configuration goofed up, though - have you run authconfig and enabled kerberos by any chance? If so, run it again and turn kerberos off.

To be honest, though, POP3 is a crappy protocol. You should be using IMAP or better yet IMAPS instead, and I would recommend either Eudora or Pegasus as a client instead of Outlook. If you aren't using an Exchange server as a back end, there is no benefit to using Outlook, it's just a invitation to Email virii.
