#10033 closed bug (duplicate)
Can not connect to GMail IMAP.
|Reported by:||bga||Owned by:||axeld|
|Component:||Network & Internet/Stack||Version:||R1/Development|
I am trying to set up mail_daemon to fetch emails through IMAP from my GMail account. GMail uses a specific port for IMAP so I configured the incoming email server as:
When trying to connect, I get this in the log window:
bga@… Connection error: Network is unreachable [Sun Sep 29 10:42:23 2013]
Then I tried amanual telnet just to check and got this:
~> telnet imap.gmail.com 993 Trying (null)... telnet: connect to address (null): Network is unreachable Trying 126.96.36.199... Connected to gmail-imap.l.google.com. Escape character is ']'. telnet> close Connection closed.
As can be seen, it connected, but that "Trying (null)..." is suspicious and it may be getting mail_daemon confused in case it is algo getting something similar. Maybe it is related to ipv6 support? My network is configured for ipv4 only.

Sounds more like a general network stack problem.

it works completely fine if you use server's ip address instead of 'imap.gmail.com', so maybe DNS is the hint here.

Another manifestation of #8293.
(In #9643) #10033 has slightly more info.
