Check to see if IMAP service is working on my Exchange server

Posted on 2011-02-28
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I am trying to connect a Win7 client to my exchange server  using Windows Live Mail and the IMAP protocol.  I can see that the IMAP protocol is running on my Exchange server but I get the attached error message when trying to connect.
Your IMAP command could not be sent to the server, due to non-network errors. This could, for example, indicate a lack of memory on your system.

   Account: XXXX-XXX(XXXXX)
   User name: domain\myaccount
   Protocol: IMAP
   Port: 993
   Secure(SSL): 1
   Code: 800ccc0e

I am on Exchange 2003 at the moment.
