simply don't use it, thunderbird for windows works good with imap.
This is not as feasible as stated. Changing 500 users from Outlook to
something they have likely never seen is always a nightmare, even if the
subtleties are small.
Try explaining that to upper management..."uh, we are getting rid of
your Outlook, as well as everyone elses because our server won't work
with it. It should only take an hour per user to transfer everything
over to the new software, and most users will experience data loss
because not all parts are transferable." In short, it would cost less to
install Exchange than it would to migrate, train and re-create data for
that many users.
To the OP...have you checked the log files on the server to check for
errors? I have numerous Outlook and OE users who use IMAP over SSL, and
SMTP Auth on port 587 (again with SSL). We do not use SPA. We use
courier-imap and qmail, and have vpopmail managing the multiple domains.
Almost all of our domains have to use their full email address as
username. I have seen before however, that sometimes Outlook will try to
append their domain to the username (eg: [EMAIL PROTECTED] or
something similar) so the problem may rest there.
Depending on what IMAP server you use, the log file may be
/var/log/maillog. It should give you an idea of where to start looking.
I honestly do think that MS Outlook complies as well as other IMAP
clients, just like MS and their IE browser >_>...
For example, the University of Washington has the following for their
email client page:
and if you note the location of outlook (the bottom) along with the
information "we don't support this", then maybe you get a hunch about
how usable Outlook is with IMAP.
The UW uses uw-imap (whatever the latest version is) because they
develop that mailserver.
I'd look at the directions a bit though, see what's going on, but yes
authentication does work with SSL/TLS, and it works well from what I can
understand. Otherwise other depts (like the one I was working for at the
UW) would complain about not being to use Outlook, unless it was
