droneill,

I just recently got cable access.
When I called and ordered the service
the saleswoman said I had to have WINx
installed in order for them to come out
and install Road Runner.

So to make things easy I installed WinME
Everything worked fine including Email.

As soon as the tech guy was gone, I was on
my way to re-installing RH.

I configured Kmail to the proper settings
POP = pop-server.twcny.rr.com
SMTP = smtp-server.twcny.rr.com

added 2 email accounts
When I try to send or recieve
I get the following error:
Error Connecting to pop-server.twcny.rr.com
Could not login to pop-server.twcny.rr.com

I said:
"PASS <yourpassword>"

And then the server said:
"-ERR Password failed for sbrock1@twcny.rr.com"

Now I know for a fact my passwd is correct, I have checked it
over and over.

Any ideas?

Steve Brock
