Description Boris Glawe 2005-09-12 10:21:30 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-DE; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050717 Firefox/1.0.6

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):

How reproducible:

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

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!
