    Issue with my POP3 mails (Fetchmail) from my XP box?


    I have 4 computers in the network and the server is a Debian server running Apache, PHP 4, MySQL, Postfix and Fetchmail.

    I can send mail fine via Postfix from my XP machine and I want to be able to simply collect POP3 mail from my XP machine.

    I did edited the .fetchmailrc file, which looks like this (I'm using john.doe@ntlworld as an example):

    Code:
    poll pop.ntlworld.com with proto POP3
    user john.doe there with password xxxxxx is john here
    I should be able to collect my POP3 mails from my XP machine with the following setting in outlook:

    Name: John
    Account: john.doe
    Email: john.doe@ntlworld.com
    Password: xxxxx
    POP: 192.168.0.3
    SMTP: 192.168.0.3

    My debian server is 192.168.0.3

    Am I missing something?

    Is your Debian system running a POP3 server?
