    I just do not quite understand why you need my connectivity since this is a mail issue.

    Thanks

    Re: ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.

    mtu value and nameservers are Ok. Do you need the firewall? Deactivate the iptables:
    Code:
    sudo iptables -t filter -n -L -v
    sudo iptables -F
    sudo iptables -X
