Email client for 30 days unable to collect from Onetel server

Conversation Starter

Hi All,

Although able to acces my email via Horde logon, my email client "Eudora" is unable to download them.

Error message "An error ocurred with a temporary file while transferring your mail"

This has been happening for more than a month now!

Does anyone have any ideas a to how to fix this?

Hi @konundrums a museum piece of software.


Wasn't Eudora a little more helpful in explaining what the temporary file was? 


So, let's think about why there might be a temporary file that causes errors.


Sometimes a virus scan will hold up or contain a file and that may not be accessible by the client. If you're connecting as a POP3 client then try configuring IMAP but do remember to save / backup any existing downloaded mail messages.


Do you get an error only on multiple file downloads or only on emails with attachments?
