Article Last Modified on 6/12/2001



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Commercial Internet System 2.0



This article was previously published under Q253565

SYMPTOMS

The POP3 server does not let some members log on to retrieve their e-mail. Microsoft Outlook Express will show the following error when you are trying to log on after three attempts even when you are using the correct password:

There was a problem logging onto your mail server. Your Password was rejected. Account: 'user1', Server: 'server1', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR Permission denied', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92

CAUSE

The same e-mail address has been assigned to more than one user.

This is an ambiguous situation for Microsoft Commercial Internet System (MCIS) because the POP3 service can't find out which user is supposed to be the valid one for the given e-mail address, so it rejects all logon attempts from all users that have the same e-mail address.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, find the users who have duplicate e-mail addresses and change the e-mail addresses.

You can avoid this problem by running a script similar to one of those provided in the "More Information" section of this article to find out if a specific e-mail address is already in use.

Note that although MCIS does not let any user with a duplicated e-mail address log on, it drops the e-mails sent to this e-mail address to the mailbox directory of the user created first of those with the duplicate address. So no e-mail sent to the ambiguous address is actually lost.

You can use a script like those samples listed in the "More Information" section of this article in order to probe the mapped Membership Directory database to see if there are users who are already listed using a specific e-mail address. When querying the Membership Directory instance, using the Active Directory OLEDB Provider may yield faster results than sequential Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) container searches.

STATUS

This behavior is by design.
