Hello guys,

 

 

I want to integrate my own mail server. 

But I always get an IMAP Authentication error. I can download Certificates from my mail provider, but I can't insert them in Hubspot. What can I do? He alway marks the port field 993. But I don't know why.

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Regards

Denis

I @Denisj, I have seen that you email was too complex for IMAP authentification. I'm using a password manager with really secured password (special characters and lenght). IMAP is not working and I do not understand why as it works with my Android. Can you tell me more about a "simple" password to make it work. Thanks for your help.

Hi 

 

I have a similar problem but my password is not complex.

Any hint?

Did you try to reset it? Maybe some sync errors on hoster side. Choose maybe for testing only letters and numbers.

Hi @roisinkirby,

 

I'm currently evaluating Hubspot and it really looks greats. The only big issue for me to go further with this product is that I cannot make IMAP working. I do not want to communicate through a Gmail account but only with the email address of my domain. I have IMAP authentification error. In a previous post I have seen that problem may comes from a too complex password. I'm using a password manager which genern ate random and secure passwords. Can you advise? Regards

@roisinkirby @llinty I checked in with our Product team, and it sounds like special characters should not cause an IMAP connection error, but it is possible that the password is too long for IMAP, which can cause an error. Can you send over a screenshot of what it looks like when you attempt to connect via IMAP? Is the field for 'port' red? Thanks!

Hi @BeccaMoore, thanks for your help! You're probably right, my password is very strong (64 char.). It is including upper and lower case, digits and special characters. I'm using a password manager.imap-connection.jpg

 

The IMAP port 993 is in red when the error appears. My password can be less secure if it can solve the problem and I can change it. But can you tell me the requirements for Hubspot in terms of length and special characters? What characters are usable? Regards.
