When it finds the mail server it is having problem with login name and password yet these are the same as the account that i have created under email accounts in ispconfig.

    Are you using the user name (web(nr)_name) and not the email address to access the account?

    Yes that is correct i am using the web_ address to log in in fact i have tried every combo even with the domain name attached as well.
    When i first got it to work arfter loading ispconf i sent a email to the address and it created hundreds of error email messages that came back to my mail box.

    Please make sure you have enabled Maildir in ISPConfig (MAnagement -> Server -> Settings -> Email).
