Can Chilkat Imap connect to Lotus Domino Server? Can you provide the example?


The purpose of an Internet protocol is to allow any client-side implementation of the protocol to communicate with any server-side implementation. Some common Internet protocols are POP3, SMTP, IMAP, HTTP, FTP, and SSH. A web browser, which is the client-side implementation of the HTTP protocol is able to send HTTP requests to any server-side HTTP implementation, such as IIS, Apache, etc. If an entirely new web server comes into existence, as long as it correctly implements the server-side HTTP protocol, then all web browsers should work with it.

The same logic holds true for other Internet protocols. If a mail server implements the server-side of the IMAP protocol, then all correct client-side implementations will work with it. Therefore, Chilkat IMAP will work with Lotus Domino.
