Bug in connection to inbox.com [reproducible]

Post by itmozart » Mon Jul 09, 2007 2:18 pm

almost every time (maybe always) there is a message in my inbox.com server, PT pops up with an error message.
this doesn't happen when there are no messages in the server (PT checks regularly).

is there a way for me to send you a more detailed report ?

I have the same problem.

This is quite a serious issue if all inbox.com users are shut off from poptray... And to me it seems so promising. :)

I ask the same question as itmozart, how do we provide more information?

Whenever I try to check the messages, I get:
Connect Error:

Syntax error, command unrecognized
There's no way to reset the "popcounter" on inbox.com, so it has to check the last 215 messages since I activated pop. :]
But this shouldn't be the problem since itmozart has the same issue.

Any help is appreciated! 8)

Sounds like their mail server doesn't recognize some POP3 command. Do you have QuickChecking on? You can try switching that off. Otherwise I don't know.

Well, that might be it. But I can check my email with mail clients such as Thunderbird or Sylpheed using the same protocol.

In the account creation tab, it does say that the account is working:
vm13.inbox.com POP3 server ready <9822.63324545234625000@vm13.inbox.com>

Login OK
Message Count: 6

Quick Checking and Safe Delete (UIDL): Supported
When I enable quick checking, I get the error message above.

When I DISABLE quick checking, I get another error:
Connect Error:
error during operation
Where could the problem be?

Thanks for the answer. 8)
