Bug with imap?

Post by kris » 28 Apr 2005, 00:37

Hi!
I just tried to set up my first imap account (fastmail.fm).
When I check -> the emails are not listed (downloaded) in the listview.
The status says: successfully connected....but the the listview
stays empty (the logfile too).

In my regular mailclient it works...

Is this a bug?

thanks

The IMAP plugin only delivers unseen messages. This is because with IMAP you usually leave all your mails on the server, which eventually results in a large list of messages that PopMan had to retrieve and show each time. Therefore it makes sense to only retrieve the new "unseen" mails with an email checker/notifier like PopMan.
