We can retrieve webmail and MUA mail from the internet, but trying to MUA (Eudora 7.1) from a windows xp pc on the internal LAN times out.

On the xp pc I tried telnet to localhost 110 and telnet 110 but it never connects. I can telnet on the server itself and it responds correctly.

I figure it has something to do with dovecot.conf but not sure as I have not used dovecot before.

Any ideas/suggestions appreciated.

You cannot telnet localhost 110 on the windows xp machine because localhost refers to the machine on which you are working. Are you able to ping the server from your xp client ? Please provide the output of

netstat -ntlp
