Cannot connect to POP3/IMAP 4 on exchange 2003 server

I am trying to setup POP3/IMAP4 on our existing exchange server.

POP3 and IMAP4 are enabled and running but I get the following error when I try to connect to the server using Outlook

Tack POP  Receiving reported error (0x800CCC92) : Your e-mail server rejected your login. Verify your user name and password in your account properties. Under tool, click E-mail accounts. The server responded: - ERR Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.

All users can currently connect to the exchange server via SMTP with no problems at all so I cant see it being the username or password.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You will need to specify the DOMAIN\user format of your username.

Use telnet to test and see what responses you get...

C:> telnet servername 110
+ ok server ready
user domain\username
+ok
pass password
+ok
list
+ok nn messages
1 1023
2 2098
3 333444
4 546
etc.
+ok
quit

POP3/IMAP4 run off the mail box alias not the user name if there is a space in it.
i just changed the username to the alais and its all good :)

Hello CaptainGiblets:

I'm having the same issue, what do you mean by run off the mail box alias?

Can I get a little more details to solve this issue as well.

Thanks
