Hi, I tried to connect using MS Outlook 2002. I tried SSL connection, I tried without SSL and also i tried with and without smtp auth. I can see the "test connection" of MS Outlook 2002's test emails when i logged using the webmail client. so i beleive SMTP is good. Its only that pop3 connection is not happening? The log on /var/log/maillog shows the following:- Code: Aug 11 19:20:28 aasai ipop3d: pop3 service init from 192.168.1.30 Aug 11 19:20:31 aasai ipop3d: Command stream end of file while reading line user=[email protected][email protected][email protected] Any clues/tips on how I can get the pop3 daemon not to throw this message and get my MS Outlook to work. Many thanks for all your help. Best regards, Nanda.
