Description: ------------ inside POP3.php under function _authLOGIN the $user and $pass are base64_encoded and enclosed in double quotes before being sent. ie: sprintf('"%s"', base64_encode($user)) sprintf('"%s"', base64_encode($pass)) The double quotes caused a problem with my mailsite 4.5.6 POP3 server // +OK MailSite POP3 Server Ready Removing the double quotes made it work. ie: sprintf('%s', base64_encode($user)) sprintf('%s', base64_encode($pass)) However, my redhat fedora core2 POP3 worked fine whether or not there were double quotes. I'm not familiar with the POP3 RFC, but if the double quotes are not necessary, especially if the subject does not contain a space, perhaps they can be ommited
