This is the correct one.
After entering that, I launched Evolution, and entered the info. for
the yahoo e-mail account that I use for this list. When that was done and the account was
done loading, I quitted Evolution, and then terminated the socat by entering CTRL-C in the
terminal. No messages showed up in the terminal, and evolog.txt was empty.
You need to change the account connection setting to use the server at
localhost and the imap port 143, with no ssl or tls. If you don't do
the redirection to the log file, you can see immediately if it's working
or not because it will dump on the screen. You can also do "telnet
localhost 143" in another terminal to make sure the socat command is
correct and the imap server responds.
