Solaris 10 IMAP

There's a very good post by Joe Mocke on his blog on compling IMAPD with SSL on Solaris 10

Solaris 10 IMAP requires SSL certificate which needs to be created (as mentioned in Joe Mocke's blog):

Configuring the imapd certificate -- Thanks to Rama on the magic OpenSSL command. All that you really do is create a PEM certificate called imapd.pem in the OpenSSL certs folder:

cd /opt/sfw/openssl/certs
openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -out imapd.pem -keyout imapd.pem -days 3650
Most of the times, this is not done and we get authentication errors while using IMAP. Something like this:

NO Invalid login credentials

If you get this error while testing IMAP, then check whether your SSL certificate is installed. has a Quick Guide to setting up IMAP on Solaris 10. Be sure to go through that it has all the steps for doing it correctly.
