#10033 closed bug (duplicate)

Can not connect to GMail IMAP.

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 993 Trying (null)... telnet: connect to address (null): Network is unreachable Trying Connected to 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.

(In #9643) #10033 has slightly more info.

Sounds more like a general network stack problem.

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

Another manifestation of #8293.
