OptOnline IMAP email

is it possible to get IMAP email with Optimum Online? Either direct or through special programs or services.

Not direct IMAP, no.. But accessing through webmail, allows you access to some IMAP features, like folders on the server, etc..

If you want an excellent IMAP provider, and you're willing to spend a few bucks, check out »www.fastmail.fm - I use them, and its flawless..

Actually, Fastmail offers a free account, with 10 MB of storage, that only supports IMAP. The free account has onsite advertising and inserts taglines in outgoing mail.

I don't really think I'd want OOL as my email storage provider.

I just set up fetchmail and IMAP on my personal server... 8+GB storage, It downloads mail from 5 accounts and organizes them and runs them through spam software and puts it all on one IMAP account w/ webmail. I recommend it to anyone if you have the knowledge to do it.
