I am a complete Linux newbiie and I am having trouble to my Cox email account on my new Red HatLinux machine. When I attempt to send/receive mail I get this....

Unable to connect to POP server pop.east.cox.net.
Error sending password: -ERR invalid user name or password.

Please enter the POP password for MyAccount@cox.net on host pop.east.cox.net

I can connect using the Web client thru Firefox and I have two Windows pc's that are also working fine. Any ideas

From the server error message it looks like either your username and/or password is incorrect.

kosar,
I am using evolution.

ray,
I would have thought the same thing based upon the message, however as I said in my original post I can get on using both the web client (from linux) as well as from both my windows clients (either outlook or web client).....yes I know Linux is case sensitive, but I know I am typing my credentials in correctly.
