I use Redhat 9.0.

I just got a free account from (20 megs!) and i have set up everything in linux. My pop3 is and the smtp is I used to be able get my mail and recieve it and stuff, but I can't do either. I get this error message: Error while performing operation: Host lookup unknown reason. and Error while fetching mail: Host lookup failed: Unknown reason. the account is working fine because I just sent my other email a message in outlook (**sigh**) and it worked fine, but it won't work with ximian. Any help? I disabled my firewall to see if that would work, but it still won't.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

I'm starting to add warning points at this point as you in no way are showing respect by placing this same thread in more than one forum. You are basically spamming our site at this time.
