There do seem to be changes... and bugs.  The gmail IMAP server is not at
present responding to the LOGOUT command.  So, VM hangs waiting to hear back
from the server.  I hope they will fix this soon.

Sounds like they added the same `feature' to gmail :-(

Yeah, I think they have made an ill-thought out change here.  There are
possible work-arounds in VM using virtual folders.  I will post them here
when I have them working.


Trouble is you spend time doing mods for users and then gmail change things. I want to use VM but for the moment i've stayed with alpine. The last time we were in touch i was going to install Xubuntu 12.04 only to discover that it was still on Emacs 23. Stunnel gave trouble and Emacs 24 was solving this. I've had so much to do i haven't tried xubuntu 12.11 so the next upgrade for me will be 13.04 when i hope to have VM running.

many thanks for all your hard work.
