How do I connect to POP using PEAR class from another server
Posted on 2006-04-01
I am using the "Net_POP3" class from the PEAR package in order to connect to a POP server and check messages. It works perfectly fine when run from the same server as the one hosting the email, but when I try to run it from a sister server with a different domain name, it churns for a minute and then returns "Generic login error." All login info is most definitely correct, as it works fine when on the same server.
I am not terribly familiar with the PEAR package so I hope someone who is, or a more IT-saavy person, might be able to tell me why the login is being rejected. Some PEAR setting? Something on the server blocking access? (Works fine when checking via a mail reader like Outlook Express.) Thank you in advance!
