Hello, I recently started up a FreeBSD system (4.8 Stable) and as part of the post install selected the imap-uw-2002 server. So the install is from packages rather than ports. I looked at some of the archived imap questions but they all assume one is building it. Is there a way to figure out how it has been compiled? It seems to magically run (telnet to localhost 143 gets a response although I don't know any low level commands to verify more) but my login always fails. Isn't there some user configuration I have to do? Its as if the logins are disabled or something but I cannot find any information on imapd configuration files or the like. The imapd man page is devoid of any configuration info.
I am trying to access the server from a win XP box by configuring an email account to reference an imap server on the local net using my Freebsd login name as the user name and my Freebsd password as the password. I also try the same thing on the FreeBSD system itself using netscape +mail. In both cases it asks me for a password but always fails the login. Where can I get some information on this? Any help is appreciated. -- Paul Voith _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
