Unhappy need to remap to imap server on linux

Good day,

I recently changed the ip con my linux server and lost the connection to the imap server, I cannot download the old e-mails to my outlook, as I am no longer hosting the e-mail on this server, and when I tried to synch to get the e-mails it fails to connect. How can I go about remaping to the imap server?

please help.

also, I lost connection from my wireless laptop to the server, all other wired computers can connect but not the wireless.....

create another mail account in outlook and when it asks for the server name give it the new IP address (or the fqdn if it has a dns entry on your site) of the old linux mail server?

The IMAP daemon on the server may be set to listen on a single IP address (the old IP address?) in which case, you could change it back to its old IP, and then sync your mail, or you could reconfigure the IMAP daemon to listen on all or just the new IP address. To advise further on this, I would need to know what IMAP software it is running.

If I have misunderstood your situation, could you clarify it?

I don't quite understand what you want when you say that you wish to remap the imap server?

I have tried with the new address, and no good.
when I say remap, I mean to set it in a way that It will listen to the new address.

how would I know how the imap daemon is set up? what command do I need to look in to it? (the settings) I think maybe i need to set it to listen to the new address?

as you can probably tell I am completely iliterate when it comes to Linux, I have been reading about it for the last couple of days, to get this resolved and I appreciate your help.....

when you refer to the fqdn are you reffering to the router?

also, how do i know if the server has a web interface for remote control or remote desktop?

Thanks for your help....

IMAP service

fqdn = fully qualified domain name.

If you have console access to the server then you can run, "netstat -lpn | grep 143". This will tell you what daemon is listening on port 143 (this is the usual port for the IMAP daemon.

I am running Cyrus for my IMAP daemon and it looks like this. (note that mine is on the non standard port 142 because I have an IMAP proxy on 143. Just ignore this and stick with port 143). This also tells you what IP address(s) the daemon is listening on.

root@blaze:~# netstat -lpn | grep 142
tcp        0      0 *               LISTEN     2031/cyrmaster
