IMAP error
« on: July 05, 2006, 05:38:18 AM »

Hi,

I am getting this error:

IMAP Error: Could not connect to mail.-------.com at port 143: Connection timed out

I found questions like mine on Net, but there is no answer.

I think that main.inc.php is configured ok.

mail.-------.com is IMAP mail server and it is working OK. I can connect to it throu regular mailclient with same parameters.

Could you help me...
Thanks

did you try instead of using mail.yourdomain.com using the ip address of the imap machine and try to telnet the machine to the port 143

Example

machine:~# telnet 213.xxx.xxx.xxx 143

Trying 213.xxx.xxx.xxx...
Connected to 213.xxx.xxx.xxx.
Escape character is '^]'.
