Hrm, well, I'm presuming that in place of the FQDN, you can simply put in an IP address? This box is just in the testing phase so I've put the IP in for the host name. But now, rather than accept anything, it's refusing everything. I know the passwd that I'm testing with is good (I can verify it in my ~vpopmail/domains/<domain>/vpasswd file), but it's just not giving me any love. The non-informative Evolution error message doesn't help at all either, so upon sniffing the network, I can see I'm getting a "535 authorization failed (#5.7.0)" error. Anyone have ideas on this one? Could it possibly that that whatever's trying to access ~vpopmail/bin/vchkpw isn't able to due to permission problems? Hmmm... Thanks again, Bill
