Quick Start Guide: Using POPFile with Secure Password Authentication

Head to the web interface's Security tab, and enter the server name and port of your Secure Password Authentication-protected server. Once done, you simply need to change the server name in your mail program to - you don't need to change the username.

Unfortunately, you can currently only have one SPA account through each installation of POPFile.

A note about MSN Secure Password Authentication

You have to start popfile with the following command (type it in exactly)

perl popfile.pl --set pop3_port=110 pop3_secure_server=pop3.email.msn.com pop3_secure_port=110

On your accounts, server page, make sure you have the following information:

Incoming mail server:

Make sure that “Log on using Secure Password Authentication” is CHECKED. On the Advanced tab, make sure that “Incoming mail (POP3)” is set to 110 and that “This server requires a secure connection (SSL)” is UNCHECKED.

You should be able to check your mail now by clicking on the account name from your drop-down list.
