403 forbidden error
When I did a fresh install of Mandrake 8.2 with Apache I got this error when trying to access my websites that I had stored on another drive. I was upgrading from NT 2000 using IIS 5.0 so I had my original websites that were working before stored on another drive.

I spent 3 days looking for a solution to the 403 error I was getting when I tried accessing my websites. I had everything setup correctly in Apache (at least I thought). And I kept dinking around with my virtual server settings. I even changed the path in Apache for my default website to make sure it was not a webpage error.

My website pulled up fine when I did this but even though I duplicated the settings in my default site with the new Virtual site I created for my website I still got a 403 error.

The solution: You need to make the changes in the directives.
Once I added lines to my commonhttpd directive in Apache for my vitual server and the path where my websites were located I was then able to pull up my websites without this error showing up anymore. I have more information about the steps you go through to do this on my website.

I hope this helps others who maybe having the same problem I was.

Animail can work as a mailchecker (as well as a full features MDA), and supports IMAP4Rev1 with SSL.

Hi there,

Sorry, not a 644 I'm afraid. I'm about to graduate and so my web space and email is either getting converted to an alumni account for life, or being cut. I'm guessing that the 403 is part of the change over/deletion since all the files are there and okay.

In the meantime this http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:DPtIZgtFwEA:www.cs.bris.ac.uk/~mm7323/ledmail/+ledmail&hl=en&lr=lang_en will get you the page, but not the downloads.

Maybe it is time to move to sourceforge?

Have you tried using stunnel with your mail checkers? See the FAQ at http://www.stunnel.org/faq/examples.html#ToC6

I use IMAP w/SSL to check my mail, and I have found that none of these mailchecker programs utilize SSL. :(

 Using the Auth/ apop, if the mail server supports
it would mean that you wouldn't need to store the password in plaintext.


 If you have to use POP, though, you'll have to store the plaintext password somewhere - just make sure its not world/group readable.
