Thanks Jeff. I tried the commands and they work fine. I wish that there
was a way to spy on the port 110 conversations (log the sessions) so that I
could see if Outlook is issuing a command that the POP3 server cannot
BTW, I downloaded an IMAP server from SCO skunkware and I'm trying that

The first step to solving such problems is to assign the blame.
The list of contestants are:
1. 3.2v4.2 popper
2. Windoze 98
3. Outlook 98
4. Operator Error.
Fire up your Windoze 98 telenet and run:
=>> telnet comix 110
Connected to comix.
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK SCO POP3 server (version 2.1.4-R3) at
+OK Password required for jeffl.
+OK jeffl has 39 message(s) (48888 octets).
(lots of junk deleted)
+OK Pop server at comixs.comix.santa-cruz.ca.us signing off.
Connection closed by foreign host.
If that works, then popper and Unix are fine.
My guess is that you're using some of the POP3 extensions and the
3.2v4.2 popper incantation is failing. I don't have Windoze 98
or Outlook 98 so I can't tell you how to control this.
