Problem: [56947] [Ex-P1] - SMTP Auth Problems (was 'Intermittent email authentication problems') Status: Closed
Problem description Added on: 11/06/2009 @ 13:03

Over recent days there have been a concerning number of reports across the Community from customers who are being presented with intermittent authentication dialogues when accessing our POP, IMAP or relay servers using their mail clients. This has proven difficult to replicate however the volume of reports suggests that something is amiss.

Found a truncated file that appears to be causing problems. Having sorted this, SMTP authentication appears to be working again.
