At this point I have spent at least 16 hours trying to get my 24-hour old spamcop email account imapped into Eudora, so forgive me if the minutia details are listed somewhere and I have yet to find them. Just point me in the right direction.
I am FINALLY getting the full directory from spamcop imapped to Eudora. At least for the last half hour (it keeps changing). My understanding of imapping is minimal at best, but I've always understood that it was a two-way street and that I should be able to make changes from my email program (Eudora, which I'm also a total newbie with) that would effect the directory structure of the server (account, whatever the right word is) that is being mapped. The two basic things I'm trying to do are:
Create my imapped directory structure Every time I try this in Eudora, it apparently tries to do it, but I always get an imap failed error message. My workaround has been to create the directories in the webmail, and a few minutes ago I finally got something set right for Eudora to see them. Unfortunately whatever I got right this time, hasn't likewise corrected going the other direction to try to make a new directory.
Move already existing messages that are only in Eudora to the IMAP tree I can see where this one may not be a possibility. But again, it's the imap failed message.
So what exactly do I not have set right and in which program that keeps giving me these messages.
I'm using Eudora 220.127.116.11 in sponsored mode. I am popping into spamcop (only because I couldn't figure out how to delete mail from my ISP after it's been forwarded, which is a university) and imapping out into Eudora. My OS is Windows 2000 Professional, if that's relevant.
And thanks in advance!
[edited to add] I finally figured out how to do all of this as far as the Eudora commands are concerned. But yet again, it is now refusing to read the imapped directory structure. This has got to be a bug either in Eudora or my ISP. Anyone have the slightest clue? Sometimes I say refresh mailbox list and it does. Or sometimes resynchronize (which I don't understand yet). Sometimes it ignores me. Sometimes it works. What the frell? Okay, now I just checked it for something and it's there? Is this maybe a dial-up issue that just takes a half hour to get my structure? Or is it my ISP just totally balking under worm attacks? Or is it a bug?
