What error do you got ?
unless your user is incorrect or you're providing a wrong password, it
should have worked !
One question, how did you setup the account ? using collection lists ?
I've tested and i think there are 2 ways to use a pop account ( and note
that alpine+pop always leaves a copy of the messages on your server ,
that are ways around but that's kinda of topic :)
1º ( personally perfered ) - put your server configuration on the main config setup ( M-S-C )
this will dowload your messages from your pop account to the special account INBOX , and then
you can setup the imap account using collection lists . You'll have on
your folder list ( M-L ) 2 entries Mail and your imap account , on Mail
you have special folders for sent messages , postponed messages , sent
mail and INBOX .
2º - [x] Enable Incoming Folders Collection on the folder options (
M-S-C ) this will create a new special folder under your folder list (
M-L ) named Incoming-Folders and will move your INBOX there. In here you can
add accounts being pop or imap etc...
besides asking for server information it will ask for what folder you
want to list ( usually INBOX ) and a nickname for that ( I don't like this
for imap account because i have many diferent folders and i want to
navigate through them and move messages around , and with this you can
only list one folder )
* I couldn't setup a pop account using collection list ?! or better
i could but every time i openned that folder it was always empty , it
didn't fetch the messages from the server. I think it should be
possible, don't know why it didn't work :S
** i assume that you've already managed to have your imap account working ?
I do know everything, just not all at once. It's a virtual memory problem.
