I tried to employ movemail upon imap as

movemail imap://abst.proc.do@imap.qq.com:993 nivfomuguessme ~/RMAIL

and alternatively

movemail imap://abst.proc.do:nivfoguessmeii@imap.qq.com:993 ~/RMAIL

But report error:

movemail: mailbox `imap://abst.proc.do:***@imap.qq.com:993': cannot open: Invalid reply from the remote host
movemail: mailbox `imap://abst.proc.do@imap.qq.com:993': cannot open: Invalid reply from the remote host

What's the problem?

Revised Error:

$ movemail -v imap://abst.proc.do@imap.qq.com:993 nivfguessmecii ~/RMAIL
movemail: mu_imap_connect: invalid server response: 
movemail: mailbox `imap://abst.proc.do@imap.qq.com:993': cannot open: Invalid reply from the remote host

It works now with error result out of range:

$ movemail -vv imaps://abst.proc.do:password@imap.qq.com:993 ~/RMAIL
movemail: number of messages in source mailbox: 52
movemail: cannot append message 13: Numerical result out of range
movemail: number of processed messages: 12
movemail: number of errors: 0 / 1
  • Rerun this with -vas an argument at the beginning of it (movemail -v ...) to get the verbose output, which will give us more useful debugging information. Include sanitized output here. (Also, if niv... is the password well you've just made the Universe able to see your password, so you need to change your passwords.) – Thomas Ward Feb 6 at 0:36
  • For kicks, try using imaps:// instead of imap:// at the beginning. Does it work? (Port 993 is usually SSL Required, which is IMAPS) – Thomas Ward Feb 6 at 2:22
  • wow, it works but still report error result out of range. @ThomasWard – Calculus Feb 6 at 3:32
