Exch 5.5 POP Server Authentication
Posted on 2003-10-23
Here is the scenario: I have an internal network with a Linksys router to the ISP. I have a DNS server handling the routes. I have another server for Exchange 5.5 and mail works fine for internal users. Mail also works fine for VPN users. My issue is POP authentication. I have telneted to the box and get to the point where I can enter:
but every time I enter the password it comes up bad username or password.
Whenever I use a client (outlook 2000) it continuously asks for the username and password. I have read many books, etc... on using POP on Exchange. Have tried domainname/username/alias and multiple combinations of other possible usernames. I know all the usernames and passwords and even setup another user to see if it would work. No avail. The domain is an Active Directory in which the Exchange Server is joined to that domain.
Does anyone have any insight as to why no username and password will work. I have looked through the Exchange Administrator and believe everything is setup right.
Any help would be appreciated.
