Everything works, but I have some POP3 doesn't

    I've just completed successful installation of ISPconfig. Everything is working as expected, except POP3.

    I tried to get Webmail working (by installing the Roundcube package) and got nowhere. I am unable to login (And yes, I'm using username and password, not [email protected] to login).

    I've also tried using it with Outlook Express, and it didn't work - Authorization error.

    Where do I start to figure out how to fix POP3? The answer is probably obvious to the pros.

    What is the output of:

    netstat -tap | grep pop

    Thanks for the reply. Here's the output:

    apollo:~# netstat -tap | grep pop
    tcp6       0      0 *:pop3s                 *:*                     LISTEN     10590/couriertcpd

    Please make sure that you enabled the maildir checkbox in ISPConfig under management > server > setings on the mail tab.

    I just enabled that, and restarted the "smtp" service using Management > Server > Services and I'm still getting the following error in Outlook:

    There was a problem logging onto your mail server. Your Password was rejected. Account: 'Apollo MailTest', Server: 'xxxx.xxxxx.xx.xx', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR Login failed.', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92

    There is no restart needed. Just wait a minute as ISPConfig has to reconfigure your accounts.

    Did you use the correct username? the username has the format web[ID]_username. the username is not identical with the email address.
