I've been using Homestead email with my Mac Mail app for a number of years. Since yesterday, it stopped working reliably. The Connection Doctor shows that it has trouble with the IMAP connection, and the console logs says 
4/19/16 10:49:12.010 PM Mail[68278]: [IMAP] Failed to read initial response from (null)

It does work occasionally if I restart the Mac Mail app, but it's hit-and-miss; sometimes it works and downloads the new emails, other times it shows a connection error. It used to work just fine till now. I've been on Mac OS 10.11.4 for a few days and it was working fine as well, so don't think an OS update is the issue. Has something changed on the IMAP side?

Nothing on our end has changed. Sometimes when Apple updates, they make changes to some settings. Review your settings. If SSL is on, turn it off. If it is off, turn it on. This may make a difference.
