    Hie. I have a Windows Small Business Server 2003 with mail Exchange. I have connect the fedora 10 desktop so that i can send and recieve mail. I am using evolution as client. on the configuration of receiving and sending l have just apply the same setting as those on the windows outlook express but l am getting this error message: Unable to connect to POP Server Goodheavens, Error Sending password: -ERR Logon failure:unknown user name or bad password. Please enter the POP password for [email protected] on host Goodheavens. But my password and username are correct. Is there any other configuration need to be done in order for the Windows to authenticate my fedora to use it pop server

    Try testing from the command line

    telnet windows_server 110
    user user_name
    pass your_password
