Hello Tassilo,

Thank you for your response.

Yes, I had done that originally. Your email, however, prompted me to
look again at my configuration. Entering ^ in the Group buffer, I
discovered two servers with slightly different names but pointing to the
same imap address. I had inadvertently created a second server. I
removed the unwanted server and all is now well. I am going to blame my
email provider (not yandex) for appearing to allow latitude in acceptable imap

Thank you again.

Best wishes,


Colin Baxter
