I'm using POP for seventeen different mail addresses on a collection of different mail providers.
It has been fine for many years but from yesterday has attempted to pull new mail from an account that no longer exists.
The dialog box shows:
15:37:43.133: --- 9 Nov 2021, 15:37:43.133 ---
15:37:43.133: Connect to 'mail.districtwebmasters.org', timeout 30 seconds.
15:37:44.310: >> +OK Dovecot ready.
15:37:44.310: << USER email@example.com
15:37:44.373: >> +OK
<< 0018 PASS XXXXXXXXXXX
15:37:46.381: >> -ERR [AUTH] Authentication failed.
I've reviewed Tools > Internet Options > [Receiving] and this address is not in there.
Another odd symptom, the dialog runs quickly but, as far as I can see the problem address is around the 20th being accessed (i.e. off the bottom of the list of addresses in settings)
Restarting Pegasus or rebooting the PC does not clear the problem.
A review of pmail.ini while pegasus was running showed an additional POP definition and, examining that, it's the one causing problems. (Even though the PC has been rebooted several times to try and clear the error)
Closing Pegasus again caused the additional POP definition to disappear from pmail.ini but I still get the errors when fetching new mail.
The unwanted POP definition is recreated in pmail.ini when I restart Pmail.
Where's that coming from and what's the best way to remove it please?
