I'm not using Linux, but setting-up a Linux box is on my list and I was a UNIX troubleshooter many years ago. Maybe this will help:

Troubleshooting

PROBLEM: you are connecting to your POP server with valid password and username and they are rejected with a message Password incorrect.

SOLUTION: PAM doesn't like your setup. This message is common for qpopper 2.53, use 3.0 and it should disappear. Otherwise, look into /etc/pam.d/pop3 that you created. Is it OK?
