Beta-testing email logins using address! - nate - 05-29-2006 02:05 PM

Here's where you can talk about the little beta-test we're doing of a new mail authentication backend that lets you use the address of a mailbox instead of its username. Which is especially nice for those crazy m4854574 ones!

See my recent post to the http://dreamhoststatus.com/ blog for a wee bit more info!

Post good/bad experiences here! I'll keep an eye on this here forum!

Works for me. Does this mean we'll be able to point to 'mail.dreamhost.com' and 'webmail.dreamhost.com' in order to get our mail and login via this method? The reason I ask is that this would help fix the SSL certificate issue in both the browser and in Mail.app on OS X.

No, the cert stuff is unrelated! Except, yeah, you can go to webmail.dreamhost.com (that's always worked).

Doesn't work for me. Neither IMAP nor SMTP accept my username and password.

FWIW, I switched back and forth between the name and mbox #. It always worked when I switched back. I also verified that webmail is working.

SMTP is working for me.
If you're using Apple's mail it will prompt you for your password after the change (even if you have it saved).

Btw, thanks for the feature :-)

Doesn't work for me - neither POP nor SMTP.

Send me a private message with the settings you're using!

Just did a quick check on one IMAP account with an Mxxxxxxx address and that seemed to work okay (using TBird on XP). Good show Nate.

I was just going to bed and the cocoa has gone cold now. Ah well it is a sacrifice in the name of progress.

it's working in outlook 2003 with pop3. Thanks for the feature. I've been missing this.
