You would probably be better off asking your question on the Postfix forum. The mailing list is available here: http://www.postfix.org/lists.html You could also start here and search for an answer: http://www.postfix.org/start.html This link might also help you: http://popbsmtp.sourceforge.net/ If you do post on the Postfix forum, be sure to include the output of: 'postconf -n' along with the relevant portions of your log file. By the way, "pop-before-smtp" is rather deprecated. Why not use SASL/TLS instead? It is much more secure and is readily becoming a requirement with many ISPs. -- Gerard [EMAIL PROTECTED] "Fantasies are free." "NO!! NO!! It's the thought police!!!!"
