    Question Problems setting up IMAP e-mail


    I have some problems with setting up e-mail on my VPS running DirectAdmin. So basically everything is working. I have domain on user level, installed Let's Encrypt certificates for mail, smtp, pop etc. But when I try to connect via IMAP on my iPhone mail app, it says Cannot Connect Using SSL

    Then when I want to continue it says "" is not responding. However when I try the POP option through the mail app I can connect perfectly fine, can send e-mail and receive etc. But I would like to use IMAP.

    Open firewall ports: 2222, 80, 443, 465, 995, 110, 587, 25
    Domain i try to connect through my mail through:

    When I try the mail app through my macbook I get: The server “” refused to allow a connection on the default ports.

    Can somebody help me please?

    Imap is using other ports for incoming mail.
    If you want to use imap you have to open port 143 normally or 993 for SSL.
