So again, its not working as intended for you. That test was with the
imapd, which I still have around but not use.
I still think the cause of the problem is a firewall, inetd is allowed to
ports 110 and 143 but when control is passed to imapd is blocked. So you
to give imapd the same "permission" that inetd has -- in Windows Firewall
the Exceptions tab, add the program and make sure it is enabled.
Also make sure that /var/mail and /var/spool/mail are the same directory
a link to the other), I just used File Monitor and saw that imapd does
all those places and more, but first in /var/mail, and since I have a
link it opens /var/spool/mail/<username>.
I added uw-imapd.exe, uw-ipop2d.exe and uw-ipop3d.exe to the exceptions and
I made sure that /var/mail and /var/spool/mail are the same directory. When
I attempt to run uw-imapd, it still gives no output. I also tried disabling
AVG's Email Scanner, but still nothing. If it matters, /var/spool/mail is a
link to /var/mail
