Help with SSL IMAP


#1

Hi,
I just signed up yesterday and I’m trying to get access to my mail through ssl imap, but I’m having trouble connecting, getting login failures. I’m pretty sure this is possible from https://panel.dreamhost.com/kbase/index.cgi?area=658 , but haven’t found any other information on the subject. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I do this using Mozilla Thunderbird and the settings are:

Server Name: mail.
Port: 993 (the default)
Use secure connection (SSL): checked
Use secure authentication: unchecked

bah, my fault, I was using the mail alias instead of the mXXXXXXX user name on the mail server. Thanks for the respose though…
