Problems pulling emails of Exchange (SBS 2003) using fetchmail
« on: February 23, 2013, 05:41:01 AM »
Hi  I'm trying to migrate emails from exchange to g-mail- google apps migration tools are hopeless in this case. So i installed fetchmail and keep getting errors.

Fetchmail: Cannot connect to the remote mail server: Connection failed to ******: Connection refused.
Feb 23 17:16:02 server fetchmail[10933]: POP3< +OK Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 POP3 server version 6.5.7638.1 signing off.
Feb 23 17:16:02 server fetchmail[10933]: 6.2.5 querying ****otocol POP3) at Sat 23 Feb 2013 05:16:02 PM NZDT: poll completed
Feb 23 17:16:02 server fetchmail[10933]: Query status=3 (AUTHFAIL)
Feb 23 17:16:02 server fetchmail[10933]: normal termination, status 3

 
I have tried pop and imap- tried the different protocols SSl/TLS/...
Logs seems to point to an authorization issue.
Username and password have been confirmed as correct- can log onto the SBS2003 and access the emails via OWA.
Have done some research and it seems to point to a M$ NTLM authorisation protocol.
I'm none the wiser with regards to instructions how to configure NTLM -enabled on fetchmail- can anyone provide some clarity on this.

Kind Regards
