If pop3 works, then just use imp with pop3 support.  You'll need to compile
php with imap support, but in the imp configs just choose that you have a
pop3 server and not imap.  We've got an old mail server here that doesn't
have imap running on it, and that's what I did ;).  IMP can be obtained from

I would love to do that - but courier-imap won't compile either! I think my 
machine has an aversion to inter7 software! 

The telnet thing is just a workaround so we can get our mail, while I'm 
sorting out the webmail problems. Using pine and POP3 is probably the way to

go. I've done that before, but it slipped my mind!

I suppose the next question would be has anybody got sqwebmail and/or 
courier-imap to work on hp-ux - one for another list!!

Thanks everybody!
