Setting up the IMAP service

The Domino® IMAP service can be run on any Domino® server on which a TCP/IP port is configured.

About this task

IMAP provides a mechanism for retrieving mail only; IMAP clients send mail using SMTP.


  1. Edit the Server Document to enable the TCP/IP port for IMAP. Optionally, you can configure the IMAP TCP/IP port to run from an alternate port number, and to accept TLS connections.
  2. Start the IMAP task on the Domino® server.
