IMAP Connection
« on: November 28, 2015, 10:53:56 pm »
Hi,
I have a working Zentyal server with outlook clients connecting and web mail working.
I am trying to connect a Mac using imap. The connection is failing to authenticate.
(I have tried various combinations of windows and linux mail clients and all combinations of authentication to no avail)


When I run the following command on the server:

* OKopenssl s_client -connect
It lists the certs etc. and at the end gives this

* OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4rev1 LITERAL+ SASL-IR LOGIN-REFERRALS ID ENABLE IDLE AUTH=GSSAPI AUTH=PLAIN] Dovecot (Ubuntu) ready.

So it seems the imap server is running OK.
When I run

0 login myname mypassword
I get   "0 NO [AUTHENTICATIONFAILED] Authentication failed."


As an aside, Caldav and Carddav also fail to connect.

Any suggestions?

Jodel

IMAP must use IMAPS  (using SSL) over port 993. You must use the full email to auth with IMAP

Thanks for that.  I got it working on the network internally but did not get a chance to try it externally since.
