Hello Wouter, Remove the 'recordio' calls, they won't tell you anything you wouldn't see in 'telnet' also. Open a telnet to port 110, use 'ps' to figure the PID of 'qmail-popup' you're connected to and execute
strace -fFtTo /tmp/qmail-popup.log -s 128 -p $PID Than try to log in. The log you provided does not contain enough information and seems to be a trace of the wrong process for figuring out the reason of your problem (you seems to have traced the telnet, not the qmail-popup process). Please send the *complete*, unaltered trace output; every cutting, editing or "information hiding" might lead to wrong results. I'd therefore assume you use a test account you are about to delete after your problem is solved, for not accidentally revealing a real e-mail address or password. -- Best regards Peter Palmreuther ..."My coat contained a furnace where there used to be a guy."
