[9fans] IMAP clients and plan9 imap server

Moin,

I tried to connect with different clients to a plan9 imap
server. With kmail I get a folderlist and the number of messages
stored in the folders but if I select a folder there is no
message. With Operas M2 I only get a folder INBOX but also no
message and mutt gives me a RAM-MD5 auth failed?

Maybe this is a configuration problem on the server but it would be
nice to know, which imap/pop clients working with the plan9
pop/imap server.

Matthias

Yes, sure but I dont need to encrypt a password if dont get any
message. ;-) I dont want run pop or imap to the world. If I ever run

We normally talk to our plan 9 imap server with netscape or microsoft outlook.
I haven't tried opera. We normally start it under tlssrv but I've also run it
without. If you don't manage to debug the problem, I'll bring up opera M2
in a few days and give it a try.

interestingly, nmap 3.45 reports your https as "Microsoft IIS SSL"

In my case, nmap is wrong.

nmap does an incredibly bad job identifying whats behind plan 9 ports
because we're not worth their time to know about. At least it finds
the open ports, even though we often have different services there
than others do.

Thats nice, not because outlook but because that there are working clients
out there. ;)


It isn't important so much but it would be nice. I'll test mozilla,
kmail, gnus and mutt to. Maybe the result is worth a wiki page.

Many thanks

I would like to work with all possible clients. I've had to change it a number of times
to work with outlook and netscape. If there's something we do that bothers the
others, I'ld like to know exactly what. IMAP is a big protocol and I know that
at least some of my tweaks were to get around idiosyncrocies in the clients rather
than bugs in the server.
