Email Clients say "Not an IMAP4 Server", can only get mail through webmail?
Alright, so I apparently messed up my email. I downloaded my email folders from my previous host's mail folder through FTP and then uploaded them to my new server's mail folder thinking it'd be an easy transfer. Yeh... didn't work, now I can't get my email through Outlook 2003 or ThunderBird. Any ideas on how to reset my mail server? I don't know if it's just the mail folder that's messed up or what.
"mail.mifbody.com is not an IMAP4 server." is the error. Says that for ThunderBird, in Outlook I believe it says something to the effect of not being able to grab the folders. Works fine through Horde's webmail, though.
Since you appear to be running cppop, I believe your cPanel server is still in mbox format. I believe IMAP support was provided with the mbox format but it was limited but is better under the maildir format. Your old host/server might have had maildir format set up and the new one still use mbox format. You should be able to convert from one format to the other or, if you are on a dedicated server/VPS, switch the server over to using maildir format. If you don't have access, you might have to speak to your customer support
Yup, trying to connect on 143. It says that it's connected, then after awhile it times out and says that it's not an IMAP4 server.
I also tried the obvious, since it says it's accepting on the POP3 port, I tried getting mail through pop3 account, and that didn't work either. "Mail server mail.mifbody.com responded: " with nothing after it.
