When I try to connect to my email Im getting:

-ERR Unable to log on

Im using:

Limilabs.Mail.Log.Enabled = true;
pop3.ServerCertificateValidate += new ServerCertificateValidateEventHandler(Validate);
pop3.ConnectSSL("xxxx.com"); 
pop3.Login("fs@xxxx.com", "fdsafadsda(");

At this moment I get a exception:
-ERR Unable to log on

Your code looks correct.

You are getting an error returned by your server - server refuses to authenticate you.

There might be several causes of this, most common are:

  • Invalid or mistyped password
  • invalid or mistyped username (MailEnable says it should in the format of MAILBOX@POSTOFFICE)
  • POP3/IMAP protocols are not enabled for this mailbox (Using the MailEnable Administration Program, open the Properties of the POP Service and select the POP tab. Select the Access Control Button and
    ensure that the option to Grant Access is selected.)
  • server requires OAuth or app passwords.
