Support » Plugin: Postie » Gmail IMAP suddenly stopped working (WP 5.4.2 + Postie v.1.9.53

  • Resolved tibj


    Hi, I’ve been using this plugin for a long time with great success, but now it suddenly stopped working.

    I’m getting the following error when testing:

    Postie server:

    Postie port: 993

    Unable to connect. The server said: IMAP – Could not connect to IMAP server on port 993. Array
    [0] => A0002 BAD Failed to parse your command s3mb40763836wme

    Can you please help?

    Is this still happening? If so it likely has something to do with your gmail account or hosting company.

    You can also try switching to POP.

    There hasn’t been a Postie update that affects how it talks to the email server in a long time.

    Hey, yep, same problem still, also tried POP. I contacted my hosting company if they changed something. Thanks.

    Hi, hosting company had changed firewall settings, so this is OK now. Thanks anyhow!
