clevercactus imap update


Regarding the IMAP fix in yesterday's release of clevercactus beta 2, it turns out not all the problems were solved. Gary reported that beta 2 fixed problems for him, but John and James are still seeing issues. I just saw as well that Koz gave it a try and found login problems, thanks for the report (and the nice comments)! Koz also commented that it would be nice if RSS messages used the more of the RSS information: I agree: there are many cool things that can be done with RSS and weblogs as well. For example I've been looking at OPML, which I've noticed some people use as a way of holding information on the feeds they read (although that's not its primary purpose. I admit I'm a bit fuzzy on that, if anyone knows more, or thinks I'm wrong, please let me know)--it would be great if clevercactus could just create a set of RSS feed configurations from reading a single OPML file off somewhere. Ditto for RSD.

So the next step is to start testing with several different servers. So far I've been using a local server on WinXP and the one on my linux box. I've now downloaded courier 1.5.1 and 1.7.1 as well, which is what John Rubier uses, I'll try to get information on the server used from others for whom it's failing. I think it must be a small difference in how the command is set for those servers, or a slightly different interpretation of the standard.

Good progress so far though.
