Enabling and configuring the IMAP service port IBM

From the IBM® Lotus® Domino® Administrator you can modify the current IMAP port configuration to:
  • Enable or disable the IMAP TCP/IP or SSL port
  • Change the TCP/IP or SSL port number
  • Enable or disable TCP/IP or SSL authentication options
By default, IMAP clients connect to TCP/IP port 143 on the Domino server. You might need to specify a different port number if there are multiple instances of the IMAP service on the host machine as, for example, on a partitioned server. You might also change the default port to a nonstandard port number to "hide" it from clients attempting to connect to the default port, or if another application uses the default port on the server. Disable the port or change the security options to prevent IMAP clients from accessing the Domino server.

Configuring IMAP authentication options on servers that use Internet Site documents

On servers that use Internet Site documents, the IMAP service obtains port authentication settings from the Security tab of the IMAP Site document, rather than from the Server document. As a result, when Internet Site documents are used, the TCP/IP and SSL port authentication settings described in the procedures that follow are not available in the Server document. Settings in the Server document still provide the port numbers and status for the IMAP TCP/IP and SSL ports, and enable the IMAP ports to honor server access restrictions.
To determine whether the use of Internet Site documents is enabled for a server, check the value of the following field on the Basics tab of the Server document: "Load Internet configurations from Server\Internet Sites documents." If this field is set to "Enabled," the server uses Internet Site documents to configure all of its Internet protocols (IMAP, POP3, SMTP, and so forth).
If the server uses Internet Site documents, and an IMAP Site document is not present in the Domino Directory, or the authentication options in a configured IMAP Site document are set to No, users cannot connect to the IMAP service. In each case, IMAP clients receive the following error when attempting to connect to the IMAP service:
This site is not enabled on the server.

To enable the IMAP TCP/IP port

  1. From the Domino Administrator, click the Configuration tab and then open the Server document for the server that runs the IMAP service.
  2. Click the Ports - Internet Ports - Mail tab.
  3. To enable the default TCP/IP port, in the Mail (IMAP) column, change the value of the TCP/IP port status field to Enabled.
  4. Click Save and Close or edit additional settings, as directed in the following procedure.
Note On servers with multiple TCP/IP ports, by default, the IMAP service uses the port listed first in the NOTES.INI file as the preferred path. If you want the service to use a port other than the default one, you can configure it to use a specific port.

To configure the IMAP TCP/IP port

  1. From the Domino Administrator, click the Configuration tab and then open the Server document for the server that runs the IMAP service.
  2. Click the Ports - Internet Ports - Mail tab.
  3. In the Mail (IMAP) column, complete these fields, and then click Save & Close:
  4. Field
    Enter
    TCP/IP port number
    Choose 143 (default) to use the industry standard port for IMAP connections over TCP/IP. You can specify a different port, but 143 works in most situations. When specifying a nonstandard port, make sure the port is not reserved for another service. Port numbers can be any number from 1 to 65535.
    TCP/IP port status
    Choose one:
    • Enabled (default) - Allows IMAP clients to connect to the Domino server without using SSL. Users must provide their name and Internet password to connect.
    • Disabled - Prevents IMAP clients from connecting to the Domino server, unless they can connect using SSL.
    • Redirect to SSL - Denies access to clients connecting to the IMAP TCP/IP port, but returns a message indicating that they must connect over SSL. You can specify the contents of the message.
    Note To support IMAP clients, either the IMAP TCP/IP port or the IMAP SSL port must be enabled, and the IMAP task must be running on the server.
    Enforce server access settings
    Choose one:
    • Yes - Access to the IMAP service is controlled by the server access settings on the Security tab of the Server document. Users who are not allowed to access the server cannot access mail through the IMAP service.
    • No - (default) The IMAP service ignores the server access settings in the Server document.
  5. Restart the IMAP task to put the new settings into effect.

To enable and configure the IMAP SSL port

  1. Familiarize yourself with the IBM® Lotus® Domino® security model and set up SSL on the Domino server.
  2. From the Domino Administrator, click the Configuration tab and then open the Server document for the server that runs the IMAP service.
  3. Click the Ports - Internet Ports - Mail tab.
  4. In the Mail (IMAP) column, complete these fields, and then click Save & Close:
  5. Field
    Enter
    SSL port number
    Choose 993 (default) to use the industry standard port for IMAP connections over SSL. You can specify a different port, but 993 works in most situations. When specifying a nonstandard port, make sure the port is not reserved for another service. Port numbers can be any number from 1 to 65535.
    SSL port status
    Choose one:
    • Enabled - Allows IMAP clients to connect to the IMAP service over SSL.
    • Disabled - (default) Prevents client connections over SSL.
    Authentication options: Client certificate
    If "SSL port status" is set to Enabled, choose one of the following:
    • Yes - Allows IMAP clients to connect using client certificate authentication.
    • No - (default) Prevents the IMAP service from using client certificate authentication.
    Authentication options: Name & password
    If the "SSL port status" field is set to Enabled, choose one of the following:
    • Yes - Allows IMAP clients to use name-and-password authentication when connecting to the IMAP service over SSL.
    • No - (default) Prevents IMAP clients from using name-and-password authentication over SSL.
  6. Restart the IMAP task to put the new settings into effect.
