Description of problem:
I'm new at this and have looked through the FAQ/Bugreports on the website
but did not find anything on the problem that I'm having... Often, the
users would get timeouts while trying to get their mail. It just timeouts
and the line below appears in the maillog
<DATE><TIME> mail ipop3d[proc_id]: Login user=user_name host=
<DATE> <TIME> mail ipop3d[proc_id]: Command stream end of file while
reading line user=user_name host=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Our email clients are Outlook Express ver 5.50.4133.2400. Updates was done
Our previous version of RedHat 6.1 don't have this problem.
Thak you very much
Steps to Reproduce:
2.configure sendmail and pop3 services
First I've heard of it so it makes me think it is most likely a bug in
Outlook Express. Outlook is quite buggy as evidenced by BUGTRAQ and
similar mailing lists, so I would recommend that you try upgrading your
Outlook to the latest Microsoft update first and see if that fixes the
We have a pending imap package update which will be released very shortly
also and if it is a bug in imap/pop3, it may be fixed, but I wouldn't know
without a specific reproduceable test case.
Does it happen if you use Netscape or Eudora or some other client?
Without feedback or other datapoints, I cannot do anything if there is
an actual bug in the imap package. We just released an imap errata.
If that solves your problem, please close this bug report as resolved ERRATA.
If not please provide more information.
Please try the latest errata update (currently imap-2000c-1.6.0)
Closing because this is extremely old.
