Intermittent problem with OE
« on: May 23, 2003, 05:53:38 PM »
Occasionally, I'm receiving the OE login screen when starting OE from dial up.  Normally, the process of Avast and then OE start up together properly is okay but sometimes I get this OE screen with the username set up for Avast and a password field.  Note, I also have SpamPal in this chain as Avast->SpamPal->OE so my username in OE is setup myname#pop3.myip.com@localhost.  Avast uses the # symbol while SpamPal uses the @ symbol.  This works fine nearly all the time but I do get this one problem sometimes.  Since Avast uses port 110 I have SpamPal and OE set up on port 1110.
The wind in the wires made a tattletale sound
And a wave broke over the railing
And every man knew, as the Captain did, too,
T'was the witch of November come stealing.

You're right it is exactly the same problem.  Well not exactly but within the same family.  I'll check the log file next time that happens.
