Pop3 not working in Groupwise 6.5
Posted on 2004-08-27
I have a Groupwise 6.5 server. I have enabled POP3 on the GWIA and
restarted the GWIA. I have done everything that I can possibly think of
to get this to work. I have checked the classes, post office links,
checked the restrictions under Access Control and POP3 is enabled globally
for all users, tried Outlook and Outlook Express as the client, tried
several different usernames and passwords that have 5 characters or more,
created a nickname for the user and also created a Gateway alias. I am
trying to POP3 into my account on the local Lan. DNS is setup correctly
I thought that maybe the Firewall was blocking POP3 traffic but that
shouldn't matter if I am trying it on the local Lan.
When I try to POP3 into an account, I can see it come across the GWIA and
try to authenticate but it won't accept the username and password. That
is the error that I received on both the GWIA and client.
I telneted into port 110 on the GWIA and here are the results:
*Ok Groupwise Pop3 server ready
- ERR Login Failed
Our passwords have both letters and numbers in them and all are over 5 characters.
