    mail checker connections

    In the past I have been able to get kshowmail working wonderfully in Gnome with Novell SLED 10 and also openSUSE 10.3.

    Kshowmail will not work for me in Ubuntu 8.04, nor will mailfilter. The only pop mail checker I can get working is pop3browser. I installed all 3 of these programs with the Synaptic Package Manager.

    Is there something I may be missing with kshowmail and mailfilter?

    Kshowmail fails to find my hostname and mailfilter gives the following errors:

    mailfilter: Error: Error occured while sending username to server.
    mailfilter: Error: Server login failure.

    Here are my specs:

    Novel/Suse Novel Linux Desktop 9 [hda0]
    Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop, SLED 10 [hda2] (no SP's)
    openSUSE 10.3 [hda3] (default)
    Ubuntu 8.04 [hdb3]

    Dell Optiplex GX260
    512mg RAM
    Pentium 4 @ 2.00GHz


    ATI Technologies Inc. Radeon RV200 QW [Radeon 7500]
    32mb onboard graphic memory
    AGP Aperature 128mb

    Thank you,
