I have an install of Debian using Evolution 1.4.5 which fetches mail
from my pop mail account without difficulty.
I also have an install of SuSE 9 (via ftp) using Evolution 1.4.4 which
refuses to retrieve mail from the same account (I was thinking of
This is the error I receive:
Unable to connect to POP server pop.compuserve.com.
Error sending password: -ERR Failed to open mailbox bwaldow
Please enter the POP password for bwaldow pop compuserve com
Re-entering the password repeats the above error message.
The same settings work fine with Evolution 1.4.5 on Debian. I've gone
directly into my account at Compuserve and verified I know the password.
In the working setup, pop3 extensions are not disabled. In the failing
(SuSE) one, either setting provokes the error dialog. I've removed and
re-installed Evolution on SuSE. No difference.
Any ideas? Google found several old and one new messages about this
error, but I didn't find anything conclusive or applicable.
Thanks in advance,
