    IMAP does not connect with Pegasus client running on server

    Long time user, first time poster . . .

    I've just converted my home Mercury server (gathers several POP3 accounts for myself and my wife, distributes them back to us through Pegasus) to deliver mail using IMAP instead of POP3. I've got it all working just fine, locally and from various remote installations, but IMAP clients will not connect to the Mercury server as long as the Pegasus client is running on the server machine (which is also my trusty does-everything home computer). Simplest solution is to just close Pegasus on the server after I've run my traps each morning, I suppose, but I never had to do that when using POP3, and Lord knows, I don't want to have to change my behavior now.

    So, is there a way to configure Pegasus locally on the Mercury server so that it doesn't interfere with IMAP access from remote Pegasus clients?

    Inquiring minds want to know . . .

    Best regards,
