OE 6 can't rec. emails.

by caktus / March 16, 2005 3:14 PM PST

When I attempt to download email using primary email account 'Login-caktus' dialog appears. Correct User Name and Password are entered. The settings for this account are correct and it sends OK. I have several other accounts with the same ISP that send and recieve OK. I keep getting this type of error code:

There was a problem logging onto your mail server. Your Password was rejected. Account: 'caktus', Server: '', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR [AUTH] Password supplied for "caktus" is incorrect.', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92

I've Googled these error codes but can't seem to find a fix as the accounts settings and the password are correct.

I am using XP Home, IE6 SP 2, OE 6.

Any ideas out there?

Accessing the POP mail port...

All indications with regards to the error code and error message say that your account username/password does not match for whatever reason, thus denying you access.

Another method you can try is to telnet to the pop mail port using the command line/dos command.

C:> telnet 110
+OK Qpopper (version 4.0.5) at starting.

type 'user caktus' and you'll get the response,

+OK Password required for caktus.

then type 'pass <password>' and you'll get a response depending on the password being correct or not.

In some cases, mail servers require that you format the username as ''.

Turned out to be an ISP problem.

Have a great day.
