duh, imap over ssl uses port 993

my ignorant got tested again when i reconfigured my ssh tunnel to use imap instead of pop, to get into company's vpn.

i've spent quite a few times, first trying with with port 110, then with suggestion from company's mailinglist i switched over to 993. yet, it didn't occur to me that 993 is imap port over ssl.
as soon as an in-house consultant clicked thunder bird's account configuration window's checkbox for ssl connection, i'm fetching some 7000 emails.


heehee, next is re-setting email filters to folders properly. i hear many bemoaning about it at the office, too.
