Greetings list,

I have recently acquired an Nokia E71 (which comes with Symbian 3rd
edition, feature pack 3 I believe). Accessing my emails has worked
before, but now, I cannot connect to the mail server any longer.

If I enable verbose_ssl, I get the following error in the log:

SSL_accept() failed: error:140943F2:SSL routines:SSL3_READ_BYTES:sslv3
alert unexpected message []

I cannot access my mail, the dialog just closes and the wireless
connection ends.

I am using dovecot version 1.0.13 and my config is

# 1.0.13: /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
log_timestamp: %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S
protocols: imaps
ssl_cert_file: /etc/dovecot/dovecot.crt
ssl_key_file: /etc/dovecot/dovecot.pem
verbose_ssl: yes
login_dir: /var/run/dovecot/login
login_executable: /usr/lib/dovecot/imap-login
auth default:
    driver: pam
    driver: passwd

Thanks for your answers!

PS: I have tested the symbian client with gmail, and it works. So the
problem is probably a bug in the communication between the symbian
client and dovecot.
