I connect to my Xtra email using IMAP so I can synchronize my mail between devices, but since yesterday I have been getting intermittent connection issues. "Your IMAP server closed the connection" in Outlook, and iOS taking ages to check for mail before finally succeeding.

I am using:

imap.mail.yahoo.com    ssl port 993
smtp.mail.yahoo.com    ssl port 465

Other people I know who have their email clients configured this way are having the same problems.

Their is nothing in Telecom's network status about this, and I can't find a Yahoo service status.

Does anyone know any more about this?

Thanks

I assume you and the other people have logged a fault?
I'll see if I can find out if any thing is known.

What can I do if I am using IMAP and I have a problem?

Thanks for the replies. It seemed to resolve itself after about a day.
