I changed the imp/config/server.php for authentication using POP3
IMAP, it really accelarate the authentication process but doesnt have
option of 'FOLDERS'/'Open Folders', which was available with IMAP, so of
use. Is there any other way out??
this is due to the protocol: POP3 doesn't support subfolders for it's the
normal protocol for downloading entire messages from an external mailbox
your local mail client.
But did I understand right: you can login with POP3, but you cannot with
IMAP? In that case, try IMAP/NOTLS or IMAP/SSL/self-cert (look into the
servers.php for the correct syntax). I guess your courier is not
configured for using
IMAP (or, at least, IMAP with plain text login). It would be worth a try
set server-list to 'none', and set all user-select options to enable
protocol, port etc.) - do so in the /imp/config/conf.php. In that way,
easier to play around with the parameters at login screen.
We can login with POP3 much faster compared to IMAP(sesion many times
expires). We set server.php for user entry for server, port & protocol.
Tried with IMAP/NOTLS(143) & IMAP/SSL/novalidate-cert but login fails.
Another cross-check: try to login to your IMAP server from an external
client or webmail (http://demo.horde.org), and try to connect with your
IMP to an
external IMAP server. This is the most useful way to find out what is
Strange thing was that, when the same webmail installation was used for
another IMAP server in the LAN, the login was sucessful & quite fast(using
IMAP-143). Seems to have some IMAP config issue. Pl suggest.
