Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 10950
Imap problem with Microsoft Outlook client
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
I was first running IMAPD server on RedHat 6.1. My Oulook Express 5.0
client worked perfect with that version. When I upgraded that system to
6.2 the problems started. Everything works in 6.2 but IMAPD server gives
an error in Outlook. Message: Your Imap server has closed the connection.
blah blah blah. When I look in /var/log/messages it says: Apr 20 22:53:14
hjr inetd: pid 15478: exit signal 13. Ok when I click on OK in
Outlook my mail comes in and I do not have a problem anymore. Only when I
close Outlook and open it again the same story. Redhat 6.1 did not have
this error. So I thought it might be the upgrade process. I installed
Redhat 6.2 on another machine fresh and the same problem. Pine works fine
with the IMAP server in Redhat 6.1 and 6.2 so I don't think it is a
configuration error. Pine is from the same university (WU) as IMAPD so I
think the new server is only tested with Pine.
tail messages > tmp.tmp; tail secure >> tmp.tmp; tail maillog >> tmp.tmp then
grep tmp.tmp for a pid that appears in all three produces:
Aug 7 11:03:21 server02 inetd: pid 14529: exit status 1
Aug 7 11:03:12 server02 imapd: connect from 192.168.0.1
Aug 7 11:03:12 server02 imapd: imap service init from 192.168.0.1
Aug 7 11:03:12 server02 imapd: Login user=michael host=wks01 [192.168.0.
Aug 7 11:03:21 server02 imapd: Connection reset by peer, while reading l
ine user=michael host=wks01 [192.168.0.1]
We have several users (imap) users on the same Outlook Express Client - could
this be the problem???
