Description of problem:
mutt -f imaps://user@mailserver results in a prompt asking whether I accept the certificate, and prompting for username and password.
Entering a wrong password results in a SASL Authentication failure as expected
Entering the correct passwords freezes mutt. It doesn't respond to anything - not even to Ctrl-C or Ctrl-Z.
The connection can successfully established from our solaris client. It's not the mailservers fault, since it perfectly works with other mailclients.
I haven't configured any firewall.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.connect to an imaps server (with ssl)
2.enter your correct password
3.wait for years - nothing will happen
Actual Results: mutt freezes
Expected Results: mutt should load the headers
Can you get a strace?

strace of mutt until the freeze point
Hm, so it's hanging reading from the server socket. What sort of imap server?
By applying the settings from this homepage, it worked fine, I don't know, what
caused the behaviour I experienced before, but it's working now! Thanks!
