That's the problem.  The only error indicator I was getting was that the 
password was being rejected from IMP.  I even expanded the server type choices 
to include pOP3, and that didn't want to work either.

Yup; kind of.  Locally, I'd get into the beginning of the connection, and since 
I don't speak imap://... I end up waiting for the connection to time out.

From mtest, I get nothing but 'no such mailbox' errors.  That's what made me 
leery of the imap program - I know the mailboxes are there, and the syntax for 
mtest looked pretty unambiguous.

I didn't try pine.

The good news is that I figured out part of the problem from squirrelmail, so 
that's back up and running.  That takes a lot of pressure off (3000+ customers 
and it seems like they all wanted to do webmail for the first time today....) 
so I'll be able to look at it after I get some sleep.

Either way, it looks more like it might be an IMP error rather than an IMAP 
error.  So, to answer the original mail "IMAP-UW seems to be working great from 
here!" :-)
