[LUG] pop3 mail
>From: "Paul Sutton" <lonehacker at hotmail.com>
Hi, I would be grateful if you could please help me with the following.
My New Motherboard died the other day, And as this was also my
win98/Internet box I am currently unable to use the internet, I have been
trying to configure my Mandrake 7.1 box to at least down load e-mail but I
seem to be having some problems.
If I load up kmail and click
file settings, then the identity tab and enter the following details
Name: Paul Sutton
Org: Home User
e-mail paul at psutton16.fsnet.co.uk
reply to: as above
Clicking on the network tab I enter the following
I am using SMTP so I check this radio button then enter smtp.freeserve.net
and the port as 25. (25 seems to be default and I don't seem to have
anything about smtp ports in my freeserve documentation.
Under pop I enter
Under the incomming mail/accounts part i click modify and check the
Name: Paul Sutton
passsword: password (well my real password anyway)
host: this seems to be pop.freeserve.net (is this ok)
port: 110 (again not sure if this is right)
Once done I click ok then goto file and click check mail in - paul sutton
and get the following error
Account paul sutton in open. The server was not found.
I am not sure what is wrong here.
Should I belong to a pop users group.
I know that I dial in correctly because a)
I get the dialog box with my ip address and the freeserve address and how
long i have been on line for. This seems ok. however I am hoping that the
problem is something really simple as I really could do with having acess to
my pop3 mail again as I am unsure when i can get my other computer back.
In the meantime I am using Linux 100% of the time at home and seem to be
getting on ok, it's a bit slow but I need to recompile my kernel and remove
some of the start up services (USB has already gone as I don't have it and
it fails anyway) but do I need httpd to start up?
My current spec is
P166 with 64 mb ram and linux installed on a 3.5 gb harddisk and also using
a 2.5 gb harddisk. 56k modem(works) and a banshee graphics card.
Thank you for any help.
