[DeleGate-En] Re: POP proxy and Outlook

Hi, Thanks for the quick reply.

Here we go again...

When it works (and it works!) now I can see the whole transfer back and   
forth. Pretty dangerous stuff!
But with this user, the process stops at the password. We've trided and   
changed the password and asked him to try again to connect but it didn't   
work. From what I see it, the string might not be terminated properly and   
delegate is waiting and waiting for the CR, or LF, in the end, until the   
timer is expiring and the connection is closed. He is claiming that his   
Outlook works just fine with some other provider, but I don't understand   
what is here different from somewhere else.

If you allow me... Can you just send the password as is, when the timer   
is expiring, and if it is right is going to go through, if not, your are   
going to find out from the server's response. Or perhaps you already sent   
it, and the server didn't see the termination character and is not   
sending you back anything. In this case, before sending the password   
perhaps should it be padded with a CRLF, or something? (Just thinking...   
hope you don't mind)

Thanks much for your attention to the matter.

Best regards,

Horia

Also I can't figure out what happened without seeing what the target
POP server said.

In normal situation, here should be a record of opening message from
the server prefixed with "POP S-C ..."
Conversation between server and DeleGate can be peeped and recorded
using a builtin-filter "-tee" like follows (with DeleGate/6.X):

  ... -vd FTOSV=-tee-n-L FFROMSV=-tee-n-L

Studying the conversation and seeing the difference will give us
useful hints.

Cheers,
Yutaka
