Re: Mail lists lots of headers but mozilla does not see any imap mail

I can see my mail sitting in /var/mail:
ls -l  /var/mail
-rw-rw----    1 jf  root       786590 Jun 14 12:15 jf

On another old system, I see /var/spool/mail/jf but it
has a file size of 0.  Mail is working on this old caldera system.

It's the first time I've tried to run IMAP on the new knoppix hard disk install.

Thanks in advance,

I can see imap is running at port 143.

It even responds sort of:

((It pauses a few seconds and then))
Connection closed by foreign host.
