[DeleGate-En] Re: Problems using delegated with imap
31 May 2001 17:16:07 GMT Attilio Vaccaro <>

Sorry for my previous post in the personal mailbox: I won't cut the 
previous messages in order to let anyone read my question.

The problem that we're having is that even if we set the option:

when the client tries to connect  passing just the username, the daemon 
refuses the connection (in the debug log there's written that it's 
expecting a login in the format "username@host").
