I want to use the IMAP protocol to access my email and just found out that port 143 in my university's firewall is blocked. Is there any workaround? The IT folks are not willing to open it up because they say it will be too easy to allow spam in. Is there any workaround?
Is there any way to use pop3 yet leave the emails on the server indefinitely - or at least until I decide to blow them away?
