EMAIL using VM and GNU

Hi, list,

Sorry to bother you with my question.

I have been trying to use GNUS and VM to send and read mails. Sending
emails went well in both agents. I have tried to read mails from my
web-based mailbox (gmx.net). Mainly I used VM and tried to configure VM to
read emails from my gmx.net. I could not make progress at all as my vm can
not get mails.


My configuration looks as follows:

My vm searches for mails on local disk in my home directory

(~/INBOX). My VM can find whatever is there (I copied some emails in
this directory for experimenting).


My vm can not get emails from my remote box.


I have got the following pop / IMAP setup

(setq vm-spool-files (list
                      (concat "pop.gmx.net:110:apop:"
                              (getenv "address@hidden") ":*")
                      (concat "imap:imap.gmx.net:143:inbox:login:"
                              (getenv "address@hidden") ":*")))
                              
Error report follows:                         
  
      Invalid argument:
              
      "Unkown service: impa.gmx.net"
        

Then I tried the following pop setup    
                              
                              
(setq vm-spool-files
      (list
       (list "~/INBOX"
             "gmx.net:110:pass:address@hidden:*"
             "~/INBOX.CRASH")))
                         
                        
                        
VM asks for password for

address@hidden@gmx.net


My address seems to be messed up, I do not know why.

Finally it tells me that there are no new messages. THAT IS NOT TRUE.
I KNOW THAT I HAVE 10 UNREAD NEW MESSAGES IN MY MAIL BOX.


So all in all I can not access my messages from my web-based mailbox.


I am wondering if any one can help me go further in using this VM?



Thanks a lot for your time and help



Regards
