Here's my situation, I am trying to get an RSS feed to my inbox and to a few other folders so that I can have an instant alert pop-up in my RSS reader (KDE Desktop, Akregator). I used to have these RSS feeds setup a while back when we were on Zimbra 4.5 and due to desktop upgrades (y'know how quickly Linux desktops come out) I lost those feeds. Anyway, in Zimbra 4.5 this worked and was a simple setup.
The problem I am having is that the URL login method does not seem to be working with Zimbra 5.0.5. There is no authentication prompt in the browser and so I suspect that Firefox, Akregator etc. is not submitting the login/password as a result.
For example: using wget from the command line does WORK.
However trying the same URL using Firefox, Konqueror (or Akregator) with the login/password encoded does not work.
wget --no-check-certificate --user='greenrenault' --password='ZimbraROCKS' https://webmail.australia.gov.au/zimbra/home/greenrenault/inbox?fmt=rss&query="in:inbox is:unread"
or even simpler again using Firefox, Konqueror (or Akregator):
When using Firefox, a warning is displayed 'You are trying to login to a website that does not require authentication. This may be an attempt to trick you, do you want to continue?' (or similar)
I have even changed the password so that it does not include any special characters which may be buggered up in the URL.
Any ideas? Am I a complete moron and missing something crucial?
