    You might encounter such errors if your server is using courier/maildir and, for some odd reason, courier pop is not running and cppop is instead.

    I found something like this happened one time when I restarted pop via WHM.

    If you should be using courier/maildir, try running:

    /scripts/courierup --force

    Wow!

    Forgive my enthusisasm - but this is the first script I have ever run via SSH. I have been trying to figure out this problem for two days on a new install.

    I read this post and thought - I don't really understand what it means but - go for it.

    I just about fell out of my chair when my Outlook express was able to connect to the server.

    webignition: a huge thanks. Not entirely sure what I just did - but it worked!!

    Cheers

    Forgive the second post - but this also seemed to fix my webmail functions, which were not working...
