    Default imapsync error when using ssl


    my commandline:

    /usr/bin/imapsync --ssl1 --ssl2 --noauthmd5 --buffersize 8192000 --nosyncacls --subscribe --syncinternaldates --host1 --user1 username --host2 --user2 username

    now the error... while connecting to Host 1 i recive this message:
    Error connecting to

    I think the double point after 993 is to much...
    but i canīt change this...
    (I also try --port1 993 , but the same error....)
    When i left --ssl1 i receive the message, that no cleartext login are allow...

    Background: Host1 is the Zimbra Server... i would like to sync one postbox with another mailserver (no zimbra)
    Sorry for my bad english

    I had the same issue... Check out

    I gave up on using SSL and instead opened up port 143 (IMAP non SSL) on both machines. I used iptables to lockdown the connections so only the two machines could use the non-encrypted port on each other.

    It is not optimal but the imapsync worked like a charm - slow but reliable.
