IMAP Setup?

I can get my mail using IMAP on port 143 but I can’t seem to make Apple Mail to use my IMAP folders to store sent messages and drafts. I get an error saying the “Message can’t be saved” when trying to save as draft and my sent messages just seem to dissapear. I am using “Password” athentication on port 143.

Anybody have any ideas?


Two tips for Apple Mail:

  1. Click on your Sent (or whatever) folder, then go go Mailbox -> Use This Mailbox For -> Sent (or whatever).

  2. In your Account Setup pref pane, go to Advanced for that account, and set the IMAP Path Prefix: to “INBOX” without the quotes.



That did it. Now I am loving IMAP.
