We are an all Mac company mostly using Mail app, but we have some diehards using Eudora 6.2.3 with POP email accounts.

After migrating to Kerio Connect 7.1.1 we had big problems with the Eudora POP3 clients refusing to authenticate.

After much testing and log checking, it turns out Eudora was trying to use Cram-MD5 to authenticate, and not correctly switching to regular password authentication.

I found this document which explains how to turn off CRAM-MD5 in Eudora.

Turning off CRAM-MD5 fixed the POP3 access problem.

The document states:

The error you are seeing is most likely caused by one of the following:

1) The server advertises that it supports an authentication mechanism that it does not actually support.

2) The server advertises that it supports an authentication mechanism, but has implemented the mechanism incorrectly.

3) The server advertises that it supports an authentication mechanism, but the mechanism is disabled for your account (CommuniGate servers are known to do this)..

Is this a problem with Kerio and implementing POP3 incorrectly as suggested?
