This message appears after a long time after signing in to my email. How would I know what emails are not being received? March 15, 2018
Why is this happening?
You need to clarify-------are you using only the webmail UI with a browser, or do you have the account enabled in a desktop client like Outlook or Thunderbird?
The funny thing is, I wasn't trying to import anything. I was just composing an email using an address that I had to type in. It wasn't in my address book. That "IMAP server" message popped up. Also, it showed that the email was sent, but said it couldn't keep a copy in the Send folder. I recently received a phone call from the person I emailed, so it must have actually gone through or she wouldn't have known I was trying to get ahold of her. Not really sure what this is all about, but it's definitely Xfinity's problem.
I got one or two of the "can't save in sent folder" responses too. I suspect it had to do with a cable that got severed two days ago someplace in the Comcast network. There was a message about it on the Xfinity homepage. It hasn't happened to me again since.
