TCPIP VMS IMAP server

Is it possible to use the TCPIP V5.3 IMAP server to UPLOAD messages? I have a lot of messages on an Exchange server I'd like to move to VMS. Many moons ago, I used Process' TCPWare and it's IMAP server would allow this. When I try now, I get an error saying that message upload is not supported, and I can't find any documentaion or options pertaining to this.

Re: TCPIP VMS IMAP server

There is an option in[TCPIP$IMAP]TCPIP$IMAP.COM:
Upload-Supported: TRUE

Download the newest TCPIP patch before You enable this option and read the release notes.

Re: TCPIP VMS IMAP server

Oops - not so quick. On one system, it works. On another, I get

14:31:00 00000263 Session 0: Internal error, please report to engineering.
14:31:00 00000263 Session 0: Session::DoRun, unexpected exception.

and the IMAP process restarts. If I set all the logicals and run TCPIP$IMAP_SERVER image interactively, it works. But detached, it doesn't. The image is installed with privs (BYPASS being one) so I don't think it's a protection issue, but there's no traceback or other indication of what's wrong. This system was just upgraded from TCPIP 5.3 to 5.4 with the latest patch. The system that's working is running 5.4 withtout the patch, but the IMAP server images are the same between the two systems.
