Hi Stephan,

You need to add the Everyone account to your /etc/passwd. Make sure these two lines exist:


For me the SYSTEM account was in there by default, but not Everyone. This will have you going in no time.

By the way, I just had a post about this a few days ago -- a search for imapd probably would have uncovered it.

The server is running but it allways refused the connection for a client.
A telnet to the server bring up this error :

* BYE [ALERT] IMAP4rev1 server crashing: Unable to look up user name

I am using Win2K and the cygwin version 5.0 1.3.22(0.78/3/2)

the uw-imapd package has the version uw-imapd-2002d-1

Does somebody know this problem ?
Is it a cygwin problem or a imapd problem?


bye Steve
