eNetBot Mail complains that it is unable to initialize the server sockets

Problem: eNetBot Mail complains “POP3 server unable to bind” or “SMTP server unable to bind”

Solution: This error occurs when the eNetBot Mail application is unable to bind on the PO3 (110 port) and the SMTP port (25) on the local machine.

Possible conflicts are an existing POP3 server (or Proxy server) or SMTP server running on the workstation or server.

There is a work around for this problem that involves changing the port numbers that eNetBot Mail binds to for POP3 and SMTP servers.

Please refer to the following help pages for detailed instructions:


Note: This error could also occur when the trial period has expired for eNetBot Mail.
