Hi there I have installed nPOP Version 1.0.8 also have installed npopssl002arm.zip
Have used the same server POP3 and SMTP settings as I use in Outlook but when I try to connect using nPOP I get the error message "Unknown Email Server" I get this when I try connecting to an XTRA account or Gmail Account
Any assistance would be appreciated I know I must be missing something obvious as everyone else has said nPOP works wonderfully


Thanks
thenzman

Welcome to Geekzone... Strange. You should check the configuration again and make sure the password is correctly entered (I suggest using the on-screen keyboard, so you know if you are entering some characters that on the Apache can only be accessed through the Function key).

Also, for GMAIL, remember it needs different ports and SSL connection. I am not sure nPOP supports SSL connections.

"Connection LAN"? Is this using the default Internet connection on the Apache or using your wireless AP? Remember that you can only access Xtra accounts from within the Xtra or Telecom NZ networks, unless you have their "secure" service enabled.
