Hi there

I know this is actually a Win200 Workgroup problem, but I hoped someone would have a solution here.

I have 4 computers connected together as a workgroup for windows 2000.

I want to house my spambayes server on one machine "", and use it to serve all teh other machines.

Having installed it locally on one machine without any trouble, I decided to install it on the new machine ( and just change my Outlook Express settings to access ( whici is configured to acccess my pop3 server on teh internet.

When I try to do this, I get teh following error

The server responded with an error. Account: 'pop.iprimus.com.au', Server: '', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR Connection not allowed', Port: 8110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC90

I have also tried calling the computer by it's name, this sometimes is a quirk that works in win2000, but this  didn't help either.

I did a netstat on and is showed that it was listening on port 8110, but that the external address, like many other ports it was listening on, was

Is there something I have to do to open the port to the network?

Security isn't a problem because the entire workgroup is behind a separate firewall built into a router.

Any help woudl be appreciated
