Red face imap+xinetd: connection not kept alive


Hi friends,

what's wrong here?
I'm using xinetd and imap via ssl encryption. When I access my eMails with a local mail client (evolution) all works fine. But if I try to acces imap from my laptop (Outlook) I can only download the header lines and may view a mail or two. Then the connection is closed an Outlook says that I'm not connected to an imap server.

My xinetd configuration looks like that:

service imaps
{
disable = no
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = root
server = /user/sbin/imapd
flags = IPv4
}

Any idea?

Hi hakcenter, thanks for your reply.
I solved the problem by selecting by selecting "Connect to Server" in Outlooks file menu. Otherwise it always disconnects directly after I fetched the headers. It worked before so I wondered why it didn't with my new Imap server.
