on a lenny system, recently, someone else went in and reconfigured
the authentication used for the mail system, and mail is currently
working fine. i now want to add a new email client (IMP, part of the
horde framework) but i obviously need to configure it to match
whatever the new mail authentication protocol is. where can i find
for those who've actually worked with horde and IMP, here's what
looks like the relevant snippet from the horde/imp/config/servers.php
$servers['imap'] = array(
'name' => 'IMAP Server',
'server' => 'localhost',
'hordeauth' => false,
'protocol' => 'imap/notls',
'port' => 143,
'folders' => '',
'namespace' => '',
'maildomain' => '[deleted].com',
'smtphost' => 'localhost',
'realm' => '',
'preferred' => '',
'dotfiles' => false,
'hierarchies' => array()
i have good reason to believe that those settings are no longer
correct, i just need to know how to figure out what they *should* be
on this system.
