Description (last modified by diver)

Using hrev52713 x64 in UEFI mode.

I use and have been for about 3-4 years now. Their server settings are:

imap v4
Use Authentication: Yes

Set up the e-mail application as follows.

  Account name:  MyEmail@MyDomain.CC
  Real Name: MyRealName
  Return address:  MyEmail@MyDomain.CC

   Mail server:
   Username:  MyEmail@MyDomain.CC
   Password: MyRandomGeneratedPassword
   Connection type: SSL
   [x] Remove mail from server when deleted
   [  ] Partially download messages larger than [ ]
   Destination: /boot/home/mail/in

  SMTP server:
  Username:  MyEmail@MyDomain.CC
  Password: SameAsIncoming
  Connection type: SSL
  Login type: ESMTP
  Destination: /boot/home/mail/out

 [X] Check every [5] minutes
 Show notifications [While sending and receiving.

No mails can be received. Mail folder configuration not downloaded.

Under incoming, I can select

Configure IMAP Folders

Doing so results in

Imap Folders
 Failed to fetch available storage
  Could not connect to server "
  Invalid Argument.

Syslog does not show any relevant errors that I can see. Where would I look for them? Maybe you can see them.

You may find useful info by starting the mail_daemon from Terminal. As it's auto-restarted by the launch_daemon, you'll have to stop it first, before starting it from Terminal:

launch_roster stop x-vnd.Be-POST

Make sure the mail_daemon isn't still running after stopping the service by checking with ProcessController.

I'm not going to output what the terminal said, because it lists my entire password in plain text.

However, I think the problem might be that since I use a random generated password with every character available, except for spaces, that might be the problem, because:


CAPABILITY: IMAP4rev1, LITERAL+, SASL-IR, LOGIN-REFERRALS, ID, ENABLE, IDLE, AUTH=PLAIN A0000010 BAD Invalid characters in atom worker quit

Above that are my login details.

My password is over 32 characters in length and is generated by keepass.
