Mac mail rejecting password - IMAP
Posted on 2009-12-29
Just today I can no longer get mail from our server. I got mail this morning, but now it keeps rejecting the password -
"The IMAP server 192.168.4.17 rejected the password for user <username>
I have found several posts about this problem but none seem relevant to my case. I am sitting right next to the server itself on the network, so it is not a bandwidth problem.
I have verified on the server that the username is correct. I even changed it just to be sure.
It is not a DNS issue because, as you can see, I have put in the local IP address of the server.
