  • My server (VPS 5869) is not on the list, and yet we are unable to access our emails even via webmail. We get the same message:

    Error connecting to IMAP server: localhost. 111 : Connection refused

    I contacted support but after more than 3 hours, still not sorted. Our Saturday office work seriuously affected.

    Not happy.
