Hi Simone

Once upon a time...we were limited to 8 characters for
users' logins (and apparently still limited to 8
characters for passwords).
I know that from the login for pop3. I can remember that my first login at my
Internetcomunity a special ISP was longer that 8 chars. I was able to login, but
I couldn't read mail with pop3. After changing login to 6 chars I become able to
read mails with pop3.

For uucp it was no problem to handle mail.

Regards,
Ruprecht
