Above line indicates that:Dec 9 12:09:17 bubba fetchmail: connection to mail.XXXXX.it:pop3s [194.244.xyz.2/995] failed: Connection timed out.
- it is pop3 over SSL (pop3s / port 995)
- you probably selected [x] use SSL
Better start 'clean': delete the account in the web interface -page: retrieve mail - (not edit, but DELETE) and start over for this account.
Select pop3 and leave the use SSL UNchecked. ([ ])
After that, you could check the settings by:
- Log into** your Bubba with ssh and change to user root.
- check the settings for fetchmail, which is in /etc/fetchmailrc
there should be an entry like:
Code: Select all
poll mail.netscalibur.it with proto POP3 user 'xyz' there with password 'abcdefgh' is 'yyyy' here
CHECK if your password is correct. The web interface of the Bubba MIGHT screw up your password if it contains special characters. This issue is addressed elsewhere on this forum.
If the password IS the problem, you have either to pick a new one that is accepted by Bubba for the time being or wait until a software update is published with the correction for the 'special characters in passwords'.
Hope this will help you.
