I'm trying to set up email on my server, and have successfully set up POP3 with gmail for my main account. When attempting to set up another user though, gmail reports ` There was a problem communicating with example.com. I can't figure out why it's working for me and not the other users. I do receive email sent to the address on the server.
One suggestion I found online was to try logging in over telnet, but strangely, it kicks me off right after I log in.
nona~$ telnet example.com 110 Trying 126.96.36.199... Connected to example.com. Escape character is '^]'. +OK Dovecot ready. user frank +OK pass password +OK Logged in. Connection closed by foreign host.
thanks for any ideas and help
