thanks again mmorse for the very quick response....just a couple more things.
How do I set up IMAP? I tried to setup evolution for IMAP but it cannot authenticate with my zimbra server, it's saying "cleartext logins disabled" . What does that mean? I'm using plain text authentication...also, how do I enable SSL for regular mail and IMAP and POP? And lastly, if I use the connector for evolution/outlook, does it still use port 143 (IMAP) to communicate with the server and retrieve emails? Or does it have it's own port? I'm asking because at work SMTP and IMAP ports are ok, but at home, they are blocked by my ISP, so I keep changing from my SMTP to Optimum Online...
Thanks again so much
