Problem with FreePOPS and Hotmail

Post by njetski » Sun Dec 17, 2006 10:13 pm

I followed the instructions thoroughly in your thread about FreePOPs but I received a "NETWORK ERROR" message when testing the Hotmail account. I enabled port 2000 (TCP and UDP) in the Windows XP firewall. Have I missed something?

I checked the FreePOPs log file:
Sun Dec 17 21:05:31 2006 freepopsd: ERROR(log_lua.c, 70): (@lua/hotmail.lua, 345) : Login Failed: Unable to make connection

Thanks for any help.

After downloading and installing FreePOPs, you must update the LUAs.

EXIT FreePOPs, then download the latest LUAs...

You can download the latest hotmail.lua at the link below...
http://www.freepops.org/download.php?file=hotmail.lua

While you are at it, update the updater.lua also at the link below...
http://www.freepops.org/download.php?file=updater.lua

SAVE the LUAs and then COPY and PASTE the LUAs to the FreePOPs\LUA Directory overwritting the old LUAs.

RESTART FreePOPs and check your email.

If the HOTMAIL Account works, then setup a new account and use the following CRITERIA...

USERNAME/LOGIN = x@updater
PASSWORD = x
PORT = 2000
SERVER = 127.0.0.1

This account will update FreePOPs LUAs automatically everytime you check it. Set it to MANUAL and only check at most once a day, usually once a week is enough, or even only when you have problems.

If you still have problems with HOTMAIL, PLEASE check at the FreePOPs Forum at the url below for further help or advice...

Many thanks for your help. It works fine now. However, the updater still does not work.

You probably just need to copy the new updater.lua to the FreePOPs\LUA_UNOFFICIAL Directory.
