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
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-pop3d/log: up (pid 1173) 2989243 seconds

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 state

Any suggestions on how to debug this / progress this / fix this.
