IMAP service

The IMAP test checks the status of the IMAP process on the network device. IMAP is an email protocol that allows a client to access email messages on a server. 

SolarWinds N-central can determine the up or down status of the IMAP service. The IMAP service does not use the Warning state.

SolarWinds N-central averages the availability of the IMAP service over the scan interval. It compares the availability of the IMAP service to the threshold to determine the status.
