in reply to Net::POP3

You mentioned that the Exchange server is behind the firewall and the FTP server in in the DMZ. Have you confirmed that you can connect from the FTP server to the Echange server via POP3?

Given that turning degugging on in your code didn't give you much additional info, I would start there.

    Other than establishing I can connect to Exchange via POP3 (from behind the firewall), no, I don't know HOW to confirm the Exchange server will talk to the FTP server via POP3. How would I do that?

      from the commmand line on the FTP server type

      telnet exchange_server_IP 110

      you should get a POP3 prompt if all is working well.

        Ah, thanks for the heads up.

        All is not well...

        E:\SyscoBin\PerlScripts>telnet 10.240.81.76 110 Connecting To 10.240.81.76...Could not open a connection to host on port 110 : Connect failed

        Fixable?

        Ah, thanks for the heads up.

        All is not well, the connection couldn't be established.

        E:\SyscoBin\PerlScripts>telnet 10.240.81.76 110 Connecting To 10.240.81.76...Could not open a connection to host on port 110 : Connect failed

        Fixable?
