Webmail problems

There is a similar thread here http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,88972.0.html but I'm not using IMAP.
Sometimes I can't login but get the "Error, Unknown user or password incorrect, Go to the login page".
Other times I can login without trouble but accessing an email or replying to an email brings up the same error message even though the folder structure is still visible on the left hand side. This happened twice with a reply yet the reply was posted!.
I have screen captures if they are needed.
Using Firefox 3.6.9 on Sabayon Linux 5.4 KDE

You are using IMAP if you are using webmail.

Thank you for that. It had never occurred to me as I always use POP3 and Thunderbird, just going to webmail if I'm away from my machines.
Are you still getting problems?

Re: Webmail problems

I wonder if there is a connection with another problem; If I send an email to my PN address it is bounced back. Here is a munged extract from the bounce message:
Subject:

Re: Webmail problems

Update:
Still having occasional problems getting kicked off but the other problems are now sorted. I wasn't aware of the necessity of turning "catch all" on to receive all emails addressed to anyone@mynode.plus.com. I did raise a ticket and have been informed that the problem of getting kicked off or not always being able to logon are recognized as an open problem that they are working on.
