POP3 not working with NAT in versions since 3.2.0

Reported by: pupemail Owned by:
Priority: major Component: network/NAT
Version: VirtualBox 3.2.2 Keywords: NAT POP3
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Windows


Windows 7 64 bit host, Windows XP SP3 guests. When I upgraded to 3.2.0 none of my guests were able to POP my email accounts when using NAT, bridged they are fine. I downgraded to 3.1.8 and the guests could once again POP my email using NAT (even leaving 3.2.0 guest additions installed on the guest). I then tried 3.2.2 and experienced the same issue, had to go back to 3.1.8. I tried numerous variations of --nataliasmode1 sameports, proxyonly but never got NAT and POP to work with 3.2.x. I haven't tried 3.2.4 since the change log doesn't look promising and I've been pressed for time. No VBox.log file is attached because I had to revert back to 3.1.8 and don't have the time to switch 3.2.x in and out again. I need NAT because I travel alot and bridging to my wireless adapter doesn't work at most hotels and some client sites.

Unfortunately, I couldn't reproduce the problem you've described. What I have done:

  1. created test gmail account
  2. configured account/mail client
  3. send mail from the host and received it in guest's mail client.

Please reopen if it still does not work with VBox 3.2.8 and you can provide more information.
