    I would be migrating from Qmail to ISPCONFIG. I have a mail hosting server which has ISPConfig configured & the mails are pulled to a local server via fetchmail. The problem I face is that if I enter the username as web[ID]_USER in the fetchmail file I am NOT able to fetchmail.
    But if I give the fetchmail script logs an authentication error. This used to work with Qmail but I assume something's been overlooked by me becoz of which I am not able to user the username@domainname in fetchmail

    Help would be appreciated

    Please post the exact fetmail errors and your fetchmailrc file.

    Is fetchmail dwonloading the mails to the ispconfig server or from the ispconfig server?

    Sorry for not being precise in my description of the problem.
    1) Fetchmail is on a seperate linux server with CENTOS installed & would be downloading from the ISPconfig server

    2) The contents of the fetchmailrc file:
    poll SERVER_IP protocol POP3 port 110
    user web2_user1 with pass abc is user2 here

    The above mentioned entry works fine. But if the entry changes to the following:
    poll SERVER_IP protocol POP3 port 110
    user user1@domainname with pass abc is user2 here
    then i get errors. The error is as follows:

    fetchmail: POP3> CAPA
    fetchmail: POP3< +OK
    fetchmail: POP3< CAPA
    fetchmail: POP3< TOP
    fetchmail: POP3< USER
    fetchmail: POP3< UIDL
    fetchmail: POP3< RESP-CODES
    fetchmail: POP3< SASL
    fetchmail: POP3< .
    fetchmail: POP3> USER user1@domainname.
    fetchmail: POP3< +OK
    fetchmail: POP3> PASS *
    fetchmail: POP3< -ERR Authentication failed.
    fetchmail: Authentication failed.
    fetchmail: Authorization failure on user1@domainname@SERVER_IP
    fetchmail: POP3> QUIT

    When using WEB[ID]_USER i dont get errors. It downloads mails perfectly fine.
    But I want to try the other option of user@domainname

    user@domainname is not suppoertde by ISPConfig, you can access pop3 mailboxes only by username and not by email address.
