IMAP demonstrates "unrecognized greeting"

    The IMAP Server has issued an unrecognized greeting

    K MailSite POP3 Server Ready <>

    Protocol: IMAP


    Port: 110

    What is meant by a greeting and how can one troubleshoot the

    problem. This Outlook does not connect to an exchange server.

    Connection is to a 3rd party email service.

    Check with your mail provider and get the correct port number, server names and protocol to use - It looks like you are trying to set up an IMAP account to a POP3 server.
