Subject: "Firewalled IMAP, not POP3" problem.

Package: elm-me+
Version: 2.4pl25ME+87-1
Severity: wishlist

(This could be normal or important, but since POP3 functionality isn't
important in Elm, I'll stick with wishlist.)

In this version, I cannot connect to "my" POP3 server, since that server
doesn't offer IMAP, it offers POP3 only. The changelog mentions that elm
uses IMAP to access username@server "folder" first and tries POP if
connection to IMAP port gives Connection refused. But this server just times
out. There is never "Connection refused." . Therefore I cannot access my
POP3 account.

Maybe there is an option or switch to force to use POP3, but I haven't found
or noticed it. Command "cd /usr/share/doc/elm-me+ && zgrep -i \\\<pop\\\>
*" doesn't show anything usefull.

I was going to offer username@server[:{imap|pop3}] syntax (like
username@server:pop3) to force to use non-default protocol, but then I've
noticed that this is used to access different folders in IMAP. Maybe it
could be username@server[:{imap|pop3}/port_number] ? I am not sure if
username can contain ":" and if not, then it could be
[{imap|pop3}[/port_number]:]username@server syntax.

Version 2.4pl25ME+73-2 worked for me.

 - Peter.

P.S.: Is there a way to specify "From:" address in Elm? Some lines in
      changelog suggest it does, but I didn't figure out how to set that
      header. I know full name can be specified in ~/.elm/elmrc .
 - P.
