Hi Joe,

I guess I'm unclear on this. I had assumed that when imap is running, I can
access my normal user mail folders thru imap, leaving folders where they are,
e.g. "home/<username>/mail". Is this what you are saying?

I did revise the client settings to reflect the change to port 993 and using
SSL, but not StartTLS.

Regarding the certs, keep in mind that I have postfix running on host.local. I
set up a host name to listen on this comuters local IP address. That is why I
originally issued 2 different certs, one for the name, and another
for the local (internal) IP address. But, as stated earlier I deleted both
and re-issued one for imapd.pem. Still not connecting.

When I had imap running, I could telnet to it at port 143 and get a reply. Now
that imaps is running when I telnet to port 993 I get only a blinking cursor.
If I press any key, it exits back to the local telnet prompt, no visible
reply from imapd.
