I’ve recently started playing with IMAP4. For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s an email protocol meant to replace POP3. This web page should give you some idea:
Anyway, I’m having some problems with it, and hope that some of the gurus here can help. Basically, I can check my email using IMAP4 (it works both with and without SSL enabled), but I can’t send email. I’m using Hinet, and my mail server is 25 (that is, my address is @ms25.hinet.net). I’ve tried using variations on the theme, such as imap.ms25.hinet.net and imap.hinet.net, but no luck. I’m using Sylpheed as my mail client (this is a Linux box) - I guess I should try it with some other client. Anyway, if anyone else here is using IMAP and has an idea, I’d like to hear from you.
