    I am trying to configure a spambox in outlook express for a customer but it is not working. I am setting it up as an IMAP account. Settings are below:

    e-mail address: test@****.com/spam
    user name: test@****.com/spam
    password: using the password for email test@****.com
    Incoming Mail Server (IMAP): mail.****.com
    Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): mail.****.com

    Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong here. Thanks alot.

    I think you only need the /spam if you are using pop3

    try it without.


    from that cpanel page:
    You can easily use IMAP or Horde/IMP to check messages that are routed to this box. If you wish to use pop3 to check the spam box, just add "/spam" (without the quotes) to the end of your pop3 login. (Example: user@domain.tld/spam)

    do NOT use /spam in the username/account name unless you are using pop3.
