Getting IMAP working

Getting IMAP working

Getting IMAP working

I thought I did everything to get IMAP work working but apparently it is not enough. What I have done is to set services to auto start.

I am able to telnet to port 143 on that server and it answers ok.

I have verified that IMAP is enabled on the user in the administration console.

The problem is that I get login failures. I first tested this with Thunderbird and it just returned wrong username or password. Then I wanted to telnet myself to test what happens.

This is the information I get:

* OK The Microsoft Exchange IMAP4 service is ready.
? LOGIN Administrator@domain.com myPassword
? BAD Command received in Invalid state

Any ideas?

RE: Getting IMAP working

Since you are not using the SSL port (993), in the IMAP properties, change "Secure Logon" to "Plain text Logon" and try again.
