ERROR : Connection dropped by imap-server.


I am using RH9. Please help.

    I had the same problem. After having to look around i found out that the xinetd server did not accept connections from the localhost, so I edited the /etc/xinetd.conf file and removed te line "only_from" from it. You maybe can check the config file for the imap daemon, most proppably under /etc/xinetd.d/ and make sure it accepts connections from the local host.
    Cheers.

      I had the message ERROR : Connection dropped by imap-server, and a fixed it. The problem was that the usr's home in passwd was /dev/null . Strange is user already had home. Why it changed, i don't know.

    cat /var/log/maillog

    I had an error saying /usr/local/courier-imap/libexec/authlib/authvchkpw : No such file or directory. authvchkpw was not were it was supposed to be. I copied it from the courier-imap source directory to that location and it worked fine.
