Well, tonight I find that if I leave "Use APOP Authentication" unchecked
and then click on the check mail button, Balsa goes off and (apparently)
talks with the POP server (on the RH PPP Dialer applet, there are solid
lines of red and green and the "modem" lights are blinking alot), but
nothing happens. Balsa locks up and the only way to get something to
happen is kill -9. Restarting Balsa works fine and then clicking the
authentication box and checking mail gets the error message about
authentication failure.

Not exactly. I do know that Eudora on Mac and Winders machines and
Netscape on Linux work it properly.

My initial response was yes, but then I recalled trying to check mail
from a non- machine (it didn't work).

Good to hear.

Thanks for the efforts.


P.S. I'm manually sending this to the balsa-list instead of only back to
you Carlos.
