Mail not working

  • i cant open b2mail.php thus the cron job won’t work
    it keeps saying:
    Ooops POP3: premature NOOP OK, NOT an RFC 1939 Compliant server
    do you guys know why?

  • The ugly answer is, it has to do with the different versions of the POP3 mail server spec.
    POP is a specification for mail servers. The first versionof the POP3 spec is RFC 1081 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1081.txt). b2mail.php requires that a POP3 server be RFC 1939 compliant (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1939.txt). There are some subtle differences, and I’ve only had a quick glance at b2mail.php to see what it does that’s not RFC 1081 compliant.
    Unfortunately, I don’t know a workaround at this time.

    thanks but how would i know if my server is rfc 1081 or 1939?

    Well, b2mail.php is telling you it’s not 1939, which at the moment is the only feature that matters. I assume you’re using anther POP3 mail client to talk to it (you might have had a choice of POP vs IMAP when you set up a mail reader like Outlook, Outlook Express, Mozilla Mail, Netscape Mail, et cetera), so it’s probably a functioning POP3 mail server.

    ya im on POP 🙁 I didn’t have a choice really, but i like POP. iPowerWeb (host) didn’t let me pick which RFC i could use… i’ll ask them to upgrade it. thanks anyways


    I have the same problem. I’m as well an ipowerweb customer. Seems to be their server?!
