The client can't connect to IMAP server anymore. It always report "Could not connect to mail server <server name>; the connection was refused." No use to restart or reconfigure the mail server settings. Then I must create a new profile and It'll work well as before. But after a few days, the same problem happens...... 1. I haven't try a pop server. 2. Reproduced on w2k, linux, solaris8 with mozilla 0.9.9. Is it a server-related problem? Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Actually, I don't know how to reproduce it. Just use mailclient for several days and be patient. 2. 3. Actual Results: failed connect to IMAP server Expected Results: connect to IMAP server
Setting QA contact to Karen.
Have similar problem: "Failed to connect to server imap.mail.netcenter.com" This happened immediately after installing Mozilla on Windows 2000 server. The Netscape email client works just fine. I removed all Netscape accounts and added 1 account in order to narrow down the problem. Same result: Netscape email client is working just fine. Mozilla IMAP email client is not working. Cannot receive email. However POP3 email client is working fine under Mozilla.
Always happens when attemting to get mail from Netscape server.
Create a new profile and try again. Sometimes this can solve the problem. Don't know the reason.
Reporter is this still a problem? If not, please close the bug!
Still get an error "failed to connect to server imap.netscape.com" when trying to get Netscape mail. It has never worked. works fine for all POP mail accounts.
John Caruthers, can you connect to netscape imap with other app?
reporter, is this a network prob? i tried: $ telnet imap.netscape.com imap imap.netscape.com.: No address associated with name $ - please try telnet or another mail app.
As far as I know: - The correct server is imap.mail.netcenter.com not imap.netscape.com if you want to connect to Netscapes Webmail - Only the netscape branded version is allowed to connect via imap to the Netscape Webmail service. Reporter are you trying to connect by mozilla or thunderbird ?
I the server to the one suggested "imap.mail.netcenter.com" and it still gives the same error "Failed to connect to server imap.mail.netcenter.com". I tried in Outlook also with similar message.
Reporter, since only Netscape-product are allowed to connect, this can't be a Moz prob. Marking RESOLVED INVALID
I haven't met the same problem on netscape/mozilla for a so long time. Maybe it's fixed sometime. Well, it's ok to close it. But I don't think the reason should be "since only Netscape-product are allowed to connect, this can't be a Moz prob". The reason is unknown till now. :)
