Description: ------------ The Tikiwiki groupware comes with version of the net_pop3 package. Whenever I want to collect mail with pop3, I get the message "Catchable fatal error: Object of class PEAR_Error could not be converted to string in /home/vicfont/public_html/forum/lib/webmail/net_pop3.php on line 909". I investigated a bit and found that file net_pop3.php actually corresponds to this package POP3.php. So my guess was to exchange the file for the new version 1.3.6 - but still the same problem occurs (now on line 897 though...) I now believe that this is a bug in the PEAR package, which somehow must dpend on the PHP configuration, as there are thousands of Tikiwiki installations running with no problems... Please help me with this. And feel free to get in touch if you need to know anything about my PHP installation or configuration. Best wishes, Jan

This is not a problem in PEAR, but how pear packages are used in your software. (Missing error checks)
