Post POP3 quest.....

Hello.

Suppose I'm an organization which buys mail account and domain from Arminco. Suppose my organization name is al-qaeda, and my domain is al-qaeda.am. Server is located at Arminco. My email address is [email protected] Here questions go:

1. Why am I using 'binladen%al-qaeda.am#al-qaeda.am' as a username in my outlook.
2.
-------
telnet al-qaeda.am 110
+OK CommuniGate Pro POP3 Server 4.0b5 ready <[email protected]>
USER binladen
+OK please send the PASS
PASS georgebush
-ERR incorrect password or account name
-------
telnet al-qaeda.am 110
+OK CommuniGate Pro POP3 Server 4.0b5 ready <[email protected]>
USER binladen%al-qaeda.am#al-qaeda.am
+OK please send the PASS
PASS georgebush
-ERR account has been moved to a remote system
-------



How do I check my mail directly using telnet and pop protocol??
Note:: OUTLOOK WORKS!!

What hostname do you use in Outlook? al-quaeda.am? Or something else?

in fact there's something I forgot to notice:
I'm running outlook from a computer which is connected to that server through LAN, and so my host written there is not al-qaeda.am, it's just host's IP address in local LAN......
So?

ThX a lot.

Stupid question.. have you tried to do telnet by IP adress? (In that case only you can claim you did the same things as Outlook).
But I don't realy see any difference in telneting 25 port of host name or by ip adress. My suggestion look very stupid, but that's the only thing I would try on your place.

Does Arminco Support give you any answer?

Commutitygate is virtual mailbox sofwtare, so i think that u must specify domain name in usernae, so communiygate can open proper mailbox,
try binladen_DOMAINNAME, or binladenOMAINNAME

VX: he does (see his 1st question). I'm not sure about last #al-quaeda.am, but that might be Arminco's specific config.

Rust. Did you tried telnet host.am 25 ?
I swear I did thing you're trying to do once, but this was 1 year ago, and I remember seeing the same message. I remember trying different hostnames and ip adresses, but I don't remember wich one worked...

Does Outlook make any logs of what exactly it doing?

Oof.

Still can't make it .

telnet host.am 110
same result as telnet redcross.am 110.

By the way, I didn't understand why did you write 'telnet host.am 25'.... Is SMTP anyhow bound with POP3??

Ooof I'm tired of lame administration of Arminco
I need to write a webbased mail client for Al-Qaeda and I can't make it!! Help!

Regards,
Silver

Sorry about 25 port, I so used to telnet on SMTP ports I automatically write 25 after any telnet command. Of course it should be 110.

I wouldn't say it's 'lame administartion of Arminco' because Outlook works, right? And if it works - then system is OK!

Have you actually spoken to their support?
