POP3 Connector on WIndows Server 2003 SBS not working one minute, then working the next
Posted on 2010-01-05
Client is running a Fedora server which is handling their email. Their exchange server uses a pop3 connector to grab a copy of their emails and deliver to their Exchange mailboxes. The POP3 connector's schedule is on a 15 minute rotation.
For long periods of time, event viewer shows access is granted for the POP3 connector, and email comes in. At other times there is the following warning:
Warning: Mail retrieval failed, reason: POP3 Host did not acknowlege password and returned following error: -ERR Authentication failed..
This warning has been showing up for the past 30 minutes and no one is getting their emails. Any ideas?
