This isn't really a problem, I'm just curious. Whenever I logon to to mail.goth.net on port 110 to check my mail (I don't do this on a daily basis, just when I'm not on my own computer) I get the following results:


Code:
+OK POP3 sanctuary.goth.net v2001.78 server ready
user liberant
-ERR Unknown AUTHORIZATION state command
user liberant
+OK User name accepted, password please
pass ********
+OK Mailbox open, 1 messages


My question is why I have to enter my user name twice. This happenes every time. Does anyone experience similar results?

This may seem like a dumb question, but do you Telnet into the port 110 or do you use a mail-client?

It's not something I experience.

PreZ's comment when I read it was that he isn't the one who created the pop3 server (or something to that effect).

ShadowCrow, I'm sorry I did not expand on this. Whenever I'm not at home, and I need to check my mail, I usually use this site's form. But most of the time, I'm at school, where I'm not supposed have or check email at school. And they have installed a filter that blocks the web form, as well as disabling any mail clients. So I use Telnet. Its just simpler.

*Nods*

Can it be that your Telnet-client automatically writes some character(s) upon connection to the mail-pop3-server? Like writing the "escape-character" once it connects to the server?

Do you have local echo on when you connect?

Just some thoughts.

I just tried this myself:

$ telnet mail.goth.net 110
+OK POP3 sanctuary.goth.net v2001.78 server ready
user liberant
+OK User name accepted, password please

I aborted the telnet then. I don't know whats going on for you, maybe some weird key encoding or something, I don't know. Is this still a problem?
