I know this question has probably been beat half-ta-death but it is my turn to ask.. sorry.
I obtained a Virtual Private Server from Go-Daddy to act as an Email Server and DNS. So far I have been successful in Implementing the DNS server and, for the most part, the Email server.
The Email server can send Outgoing mail and it can receive Incoming mail. I can also log onto the Virtual machine and retrieve email (using the 'mail' command) for all current email users.
My problem is with POP3 authentication (and IMAP for that matter). I am using 'Plain Text' passwords and i am NOT using SSL. It fails to authenticate when using 'Telnet Localhost....' (as a means of testing) and from Thunderbird. (as is to be expected)
I am sure that there is a setting or .config file that I am overlooking. I could sure use another set of eyes on this.
Question: is it possible that I may be missing some data in the 'host.conf' file?? If that is possible what should I look for?
