Hi you guys,

I just signed up on webfaction yesterday and wanted to test receiving emails using IMAP. It worked for about an hour now, but at the moment I can neither connect to my mailbox "add_goodies" with mozilla thunderbird nor with my Django/Python application.

It might be that my Django app issued a lot of login requests, maybe I have been blocked from the server for that reason? If the problem persitst this would be a reason to switch to another webhoster since my App will depend heavily on a reliable connection to the email mailbox.

Best Benjamin

UPDATE: There was a brief period now where authentication and downloading the emails worked perfectly well. Unfortunately it only worked for like 15 Minutes, now neither Django nor Thunderbird can authenticate again.
