I've been looking around and keep on finding the line:

imap.Connect("", 993, null, ImapSecurity.Implicit);

However in the library that I downloaded from, the vs2008 version, I only could find the call

imap.Connect("", 993);

Without the subsequent arguments. I've tried connecting however rebex keeps timing out, though I've connected with telnet without timing out.



Applies to: Rebex Secure Mail

if you see only short variant of imap.Connect method it's probably because you are using a plain 'Rebex Mail' or Rebex IMAP component. To connect using IMAP/SSL you have to use 'Rebex secure Mail' or Rebex Secure IMAP. To compare capabilities of those two check the table on the bottom of following page:

Try to download purchased copy Rebex Secure Mail component from If you do not see it there, please contact our for an upgrade pricing.

Hi, I wanted to try the class out before purchasing it, which is the point of the 30 day trial as I understood. I wasn't aware that I was using the plain one, as I downloaded the trial from what I thought was the correct page.
