This is going to kind of hard to explain...so here's some background. I have 2 virtual domains. domain1.com and domain2.com. I have dns1.domain1.com setup in my dns as my dns server and mail.domain1.com setup as my default mail server. I have the MX record for domain2.com pointing toward mail.domain1.com. This all appears to be ok.
Now in Linuxconf (RHLinux6.0):
For Mail delivery system I have mail.domain1.com setup as my Mail server and my host name that my ISP gave me as my Mail gateway (this seems to be ok). I have domain2.com setup as a virtual email domain (domain2.com is setup in my dns). For virtual domain user aliases, I have an alias name "webmaster" under domain2.com and all e-mail is being forwarded to "realuser1" (this "realuser1" is setup as a real user in linux).
Next, I set up a real POP account for "realuser1".
Using Netscape in linux, I can send mail with no problem using smtp and using mail.domain1.com as my smtp server and "realuser1" as username.
However, using mail.domain1.com as my incoming POP server and I try to retreive e-mail, it tells me that "there is an error with my POP server"
Next, I tried to change the pop-3 line in my /etc/inetd.conf file to"
pop-3 stream tcp nowait root /usr/lib/linuxconf/lib/vpop3d
and setup a virtual pop account in linuxconf with login name "virtualuser2" and a password. Now when I try to receive mail from the pop server (using either "virtualuser2" or "realuser1")", it gives the error "The mail server responded: invalid usercode or password, please try again...etc."
I'm completely frustrated at this point and don't know what to try next. I've read something about qpopper, but I don't know where to get it or how to install it or anything. If there's a way I can get this to work without installing qpopper, please let me know. Thank you.
