        Thanks for the pointer on the logging, makes all the difference in
the world! ;) As for Netscape on a Mac, I'm now just telneting to port 110
and issuing user and pass commands... Now, what I'm seeing happening is the
if I'm a local user, and only required to enter my username, it works.. If
I'm a virtual domain, and have to use the @ in my login, it never queries
the SQL server... Such as follows:

user test
pass password

user test@xxxxx
pass password

        The first sends a query and the second does not... So, my guess is
that for whatever reason, it sees @ in the username, and isn't happy
anymore, and never attempts to authenticate... I'm not finding any core's
or anything like that, it's just not talking to anyone.. I'm going to mess
with this other server I'm setting up and see if it does anything
different.. Thanks for all the help!
