Can't receive mail in outlook 2003 or outlook express 6 via POP3
Posted on 2006-06-29
I have a really weird problem. I have 2 small work groups on the same network. My POP3 mail server is on one workgroup and the clients are on the other work group. One client is running Win XP and can send / recieve mail without any problems internal and external to our network. The second client is running Media Center. It is configured to check the same email accounts as client 1. The MC system just will not recieve any email. It will send just fine but will not recieve. It doesn't matter if I try outlook 2003 or express. Driving me crazy.
Anyone have any clue why this would happen?
I have SPA configured on both as well as "my outgoing mail server requires authentication". If I run the test account settings in outlook 2003 on the MC system it works and I get all green check marks. However, I can't see the messages. If I go to machine one it will download the msgs just fine.
The MC system running Outlook Express is configured for multiple identities under a main account. The main account seems to send / receive mail but none of the other identities are working. They can send but can't receive.
All the outlook express settings for the accounts are the same between client 1 and 2. Client 1 works Client 2 can't receive.
