Hi gator
Just come across your posting. Until a few moments ago I was in a very similar situation, trying to connect emailing software with a MySQL db, using MyODBC drivers. I had received the same error message too.

What we have discovered here (actually a colleague not me!) is that the connection could be successfully made only when one does not select specific catalogues (sets of database tables) to connect to - even if you can view / select individual ones.

Leave the field blank and test the connection. It worked for us here!
