    Default pop3 mail being sent 40+ times

    We installed an untangle box in bridge mode but soon after all 8 users behind it reported that email was getting stuck in the outbox if it was over 2MB yet the recieptant would call saying that they've received it not once but 20+times or until the email was deleted from the senders outbox.
    Web activity etc is fine just email from Outlook.

    dsl Modem/router - UT (latest version via upgrade from previous- bridged - default settings) - switch - lan (win2k8 file server and 8 vista users).

    Email= MS Outlook 2007 - pop3

    Only by bypasing the UT, so router straight into switch, did all issues disappear.

    So just wondering if I've fluffed it somewhere or if someone else has coma across this.
    TA.

    Well since the untangle doesn't even inspect outbound SMTP traffic, I don't know what to say.

    interesting.... Check to see if the interfaces are not reversed. The bridge mode works if the interfaces are reversed. Go to one of the block sites on the web filter to see if you get the plain text block page or the regular block page.
    to be understood, you must first understand.

    Bah, everyone that installs Untangle servers will put the thing in backwards at least once. Don't feel bad.

    boyan.sharic, then you either don't have "exactly" the same problem, or you didn't really check to see if your interfaces are backwards.

    Everything would work with the interfaces reversed except for some very specific things.

    Verify that if you unplug the external interface that the little light goes out in the Untangle UI on the interfaces page.
