First of all I have qpopper running on 4.10 and 5.4 with out any
problems. I installed the package version.

Second that error message is saying that user charles is not a valid
user on the ISP where you are telling qpopper to fetch the mail

In my research before posting this question, I saw this same
in numerous places, but I never saw a resolution!

I have qpopper 4.0.5 running from inetd on FBSD 4.11.
I start it thus: /usr/local/libexec/qpopper
When I connect from my Mac to check my mail, I see the following in

Jun 19 19:45:18 moe qpopper[199]: charles at
( -ERR
[SYS/TMP] POP authentication DB not abailable (user charles): No
file or directory (2)

Anyone have any ideas what's wrong?
