IMAP connection error

Nov 10, 2011 9:23 PM



I am not able to configure email endpoint with SMTP and IMAP server. When i deploy the process, it shows me error that "could not connect". What could be the reason.


Using send email activit, i am able to configure SMTP for sending emails. But not able to configure and deploy email endpoint.


Please provide help

    Find out the protocol and port used to receive emails from your email server.


    Default values are given below (for MS Exchange Server):


    SMTP - 25 (Only for Sending Emails)


    POP3 - 110


    IMAP - 143


    POP3s - 995 (SSL)


    IMAPs - 993 (SSL)




    You can verify connectivity by using TELNET command from a command prompt


    syntax:   telnet email_server_host PORT


    e.g.  telnet 110


    If you succeed with the above command, you can use the same values to configure email endpoint.
