hi, I have a redhat 7.3 system running qmail/vpopmail/vqadmin/ and sqwebmail.
All appears to be working well, ie send and recive messages from virtual accounts, webmail auth works fine, however I cannot get my pop3 clients to authorise and download mail. My Mail server has to interfaces, one connects to the internet (alesi.projecthugo.co.uk) the other is on my local lan (jordan.no-dns.co.uk) I have a domain called mdlan.co.uk - and an account matthew.darcy on mdlan.co.uk if I login to [EMAIL PROTECTED] using sqwebmail I can send / recived mail, make folders etc etc, however when I connect to it via pop3 using MS Outlook 2000 I get a poor MS connection error. I have tried connecting to the mail server via the internal address jordan.no-dns.co.uk and via the external system alesi.projecthugo.co.uk using the usernames [EMAIL PROTECTED] or matthew.darcy%mdlan.co.uk - same connection error every time qmail stats show pop3 is not staying up for longer than 1 second [root@jordan pop3d]# qmailctl stat /service/qmail-send: up (pid 30961) 925 seconds /service/qmail-send/log: up (pid 1171) 2989243 seconds /service/qmail-smtpd: up (pid 30963) 925 seconds /service/qmail-smtpd/log: up (pid 1172) 2989243 seconds /service/qmail-pop3d: up (pid 31995) 0 seconds /service/qmail-pop3d/log: up (pid 1173) 2989243 seconds messages in queue: 0 messages in queue but not yet preprocessed: 0 I am not sure if this is normal as shouldn't the pop3d daemon only start up when called - if via a login request ? Also my logs in /var/log/qmail/pop3 have no information in them [root@jordan pop3d]# ls -la total 8 drwxr-xr-x 2 qmaill root 4096 Dec 30 12:56 . drwxr-xr-x 4 qmaill root 4096 Dec 30 12:30 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 qmaill nofiles 0 Nov 9 19:22 current -rw------- 1 qmaill nofiles 0 Sep 29 10:14 lock -rw-r--r-- 1 qmaill nofiles 0 Nov 9 19:22 state Any suggestions on how to debug this / progress this / fix this. Thanks, Matt.
