Re: Official and self-signed Certificate manual for hmail [SSL]

I'm trying to setup an internal test hMailServer with SSL/TLS encryption. I've read a few tutorials on how to create self-signed certificates, but somehow none of them work when trying to connect from the client to the server on the SSL ports. One tutorial says hMail will use .KEY and .CRT certifica...

Re: POP3 Server UIDL unsupported, hMailServer fails to retri

UIDL is optional command. You can't say that server is obsolete, if it does not support UIDL. Server still follows rfc1939 specs. Using UIDL when it is not required is bad design decision. It does not mimic IMAP. POP3 does not have folders and IMAP does not have persistent unique message ids. Altho...

Re: POP3 Server UIDL unsupported, hMailServer fails to retri

UIDL is needed only if you set your email program to leave emails on server. If you don't do that, pop3 client can use retr I'm sure martin required it for a reason & suspect it was because UIDL is pretty simple yet reliable in identifying messages. Not requiring UIDL is certainly possible but odds...
