Let me start off by saying how great most of the tutorials on 'HowtoFAorge' are, great work guys. Ok I have followed the Debian Sarge tutorial to the 'T' a few times now and cannot ever seem to log in using pop3 or pop3s, I have not tired IMAP as yet. I am using DynDNS to give my server a static hostname ( wizzardry.ath.cx), my server is internal geting it's IP from a dlink router and is using 192.168.0.100. All other modules in the server work Apache, bind, FTP, I can send and recieve mail internally using a virtual user and domain, here is a quick output of this: Code: wizzardry:~# telnet wizzardry.ath.cx 25 Trying 126.96.36.199...
