Hi

My question is the same as in title.
The problem is that i can connect to my mailbox ('+OK POP3 ready') but mail server doesn't accept and respond with '+OK' why I'm sending command 'user someuser' .
Any ideas.

My example:
(...)

var
s:string[30];
p:pchar;

begin
        s:='user someuser'#0;
        p:= @S[1];
        ClientSocket.Socket.SendBuf(p,length(p));


Thank you in advance.

I think you may be missing some protocol characters... the mail server needs to know where each message begins and ends, as sockets are raw data. For example if you send "Hello world" followed by "Goodbye" the text received at the other end would be "Hello worldGoodbye". A quick Google suggests that each command should be followed by CRLF but there may be more to it than that.

Example:
s:='user someuser'#13#10#0;

Hi

You we're right qmayo. Really thanks for your help.

It suppose to be:      s:='user someuseri'#13#10;

Regards.
