It appears that the mail client is communicating with the host, but the
connection is being rejected
This is the required settings
The configuration on your e-mail client should be set to use:
* IMAP Server: mail.ec.auckland.ac.nz
* SMTP Sever: mailhost.auckland.ac.nz
* SSL: Enabled (both on IMAP and SMTP)
* UserName: NetID
* Password: NetPassword
* NOTE:If you are using a Windows based client (e.g. Outlook,
Outlook express) do NOT check 'Secure Password Authentication' .
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. The account settings are:
Server Type: IMAP
Use SSL: Whenever Possible
Authentication Type: Password
2. Check for Supported Types .... results in error ....
Error while Checking Service.
Could not connect to mail.ec.auckland.ac.nz (port imap):
Unable to browse and use IMAP folders
Browse and use IMAP mail folders
How often does this happen?
Constantly happens all queries to IMAP server.
Identical configuration with outlook on windows desktop working ok.

Then DO NOT check "Whenever possible" and change to "Never"
** Obtained my first authentication with the IMAP server!
** Entered and saved password (after initial incorrect password) and then appeared normal start-up, without error.
** Subscribed to all IMAP folders, but was then unable to browse?
** Then back to Connection refused errors?
** Cycled system a few times but same problem, I’m guessing configuration settings but don't have the kb to resolve?
Distribution: Fedora Core release 3 (Heidelberg)

Description of Problem:
Help appreciated please, configuration and diagnostic steps for SSL connection and Port 993 would be ideal, I think?
