POP3 Mail problem


I lately install POP3 mail server( courier) on my linux box, and than I try to configure and use my linux account for mailing,

I have Exim for SMTP outgoing mails that works fine as i don't have authentication working for it (Not sure if it is working).

but when I try to connect to pop3 server through windows outlook I got this error

There was a problem logging onto your mail server. Your Password was rejected.
Account: '', Server: '', 
Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR Temporary problem, please try again later', 
Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92
Anyone has idea what goes wrong here, It gives this error and does not authorize me to login through pop3 server, though it recognize the User name

I'm no expert but I'd say you have the wrong password.
I setup my own POP3 server for the first time earlier and used adduser -s testing and set its password and I was able to login to this and use it fine. I am using Dovecot.
