Hmm, I might have gotten a bit ahead there, as the Pop3.log file would be in a “hidden” directory, but the location is revealed by going to the Tools > Options > Maintenance and click on the “Store Folder” button - cut & paste the path into Explorer.
However you can use telnet to verify that you can log into the server by following the instructions below.
- Click on the “Start” button and go to All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt
- Type in telnet hostname 110 and press Enter.
- You should see “OK Hello there.”
- Type in USER username and press Enter.
- Now it should say “OK Password required.”
- Type in PASS password and press Enter.
- Now it should say “OK logged in.”
- Type in STAT and press Enter.
- The first number will be the number of messages on the server, the second number will be the total size in bytes.
- Type in LIST and press Enter if you want a list of the message numbers and the size in bytes for each message.
- Type in QUIT and press Enter to log off the server
Please report any error messages you may get. Here is a cut & paste for an example:
[code]C:\Documents and Settings\User>telnet mail.openvein.org 110
OK Hello there.
OK Password required.
OK logged in.
OK 3 4326
OK POP3 clients that break here, they violate STD53.
Connection to host lost.
C:\Documents and Settings\User>[/code]
If you get to step #9 and the first number is zero, that means there are no messages that Outlook Express can “Recieve” - either you read them already using Outlook Express which had deleted them from the server, or the messages aren’t being delivered. By default Outlook Express stores a copy of the message on your computer and tells DreamHost not to keep the message. This means if you setup two identities for the same mailbox, messages recieved by one identity will not be recieved by the other identity. You have not mentioned any error messages and this is a situation where you would not get an error message.
