I cannot check my e-mail using IMAP in Thunderbird.

I was able to a few weeks ago without problem. Suddenly, I get the whole "Login to imap.googlemail.com failed" error. I am asked to enter my password, which I do, however Thunderbird thinks the password is incorrect for some reason.

I have attempted to google this error, but nearly every instance involves the @gmail.com domain. However, that's not my domain I'm trying to connect with. I'm trying to connect through [email protected], which is associated with Gmail. I have also checked VT's site on resolving these issues, which tells me to use the proper ports and the proper imap site. However, this still doesn't work.

Neither imap.googlemail.com or imap.gmail.com is working. Every one gets the same "login to server imap.gmail.com / imap.googlemail.com (depending on the IMAP server I am trying to connect with) failed".

I've done everything I can think of to force this client to comply. I've enabled IMAP in VT Gmail. I've also set SSL on.

I'm pretty much stumped. I have been able to connect to Gmail without problem previously, and then all of a sudden one day this doesn't work. It's very frustrating. If anyone has any potential solutions, please let me know.

Edit: I found out I can forward my email, and then receive it on another account. It'll have to do.

Hello,

I have recently started using an IMAP server rather than a POP3.
I have been trying to move all of my emails from the POP3 to the IMAP server, but i keep getting this error message when trying to move certain emails:

"the current command did not succeed. The mail server responded: Message contains bare newlines"

I was using use Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0 which was what i started out with, but then upgraded to the 1.5 Beta 1 yesterday in hopes that this issue had been fixed on the new version. Unfortunately, it has not. It is very difficult for me to function without being able to move these emails becasue i have to go through duplicate email boxes so that i can track everything. I am getting very frustrated, and at this point it is interrupting my workday trying to ge tit resolved.

Has anyone ever dealt with this issue before? If so, have you found any resolution?

I am working on a Toshiba Satellite Laptop. It is a P4, 3.06GHz, 480 MB of RAM and the OS is Windows XP Home 2002, SP2.

Thanks in advance!!!

I have a Gmail IMAP/MS Outlook 2007 issue here that I have been trying to figure out for months now.

Here's the issue: Ever Other message I delete from Outlook 2007 that is using Gmail IMAP service show the following error message attached below

"The item cannot be deleted. It was either moved or already deleted, or access was denied."

After doing some tweaking and research on my own I have seem to locate one odd walk around with this error. Whenever I disable email protection within NOD32 AV the error messages stop. So that told me that it may be a issue within Eset NOD32 AV. However, after disabling every single scanner the email protection I am unable to figure out a solution, other then using a different AV product. Which I do not want to do, as I prefer using NOD32.

Has anyone else had a issue like this one and figure out a fix yet?

FYI: I have also tweaked with GMail IMAP settings within Gmail Settings.

TIA

Hello,

I am running outlook 2003 on a windows xp machine. I configured outlook for a IMAP connection to gmail.

It was working fine for several months. Then, all of a sudden I noticed that when I deleted an email from my inbox or any other folder in outlook, it just disappeared. It didn't go the Deleted Items folder as it had been since I first configured the IMAP connection.

I've read many online posts of others having similar problems, with there deleted emails just disappearing.

I know this should work, because it DID work for me for several months.

I'm not aware of changing any settings, so not sure why this started happening.

Thanks for your help!

I've set up my Gmail account for reading emails via IMAP and sending emails all with Mozilla's Thunderbird. I followed Google's directions on how to setup the client to work with Thunderbird. It reads the emails correctly but when I send emails I get:
"An error occured while sending mail. The mail server responded: INCORRECT DOMAIN IN MAIL/RCPT COMMAND. Please verify that your email address is correct in your Mail preferences and try again."

As it suggests I check the outgoing mail setting and try again with the same results.

Has anyone else run into this issue and how did you resolve it?

For years I have used my own domain email addresses hosted with Gmail for all my email requirements, and have had no problems. My settings with Gmail are such that the message on the server is deleted once it has been accessed via Thunderbird.
One thing confuses me though. If I am away on holiday, I sometimes access my messages directly from Gmail using a tablet, and as most of them are unimportant, I then delete them manually from Gmail and then also delete them from the 'bin' folder. However, when I return home at the end of the holiday and switch on my PC, all the messages are then downloaded to Thunderbird, though I have deleted them previously.
Obviously the reason for accessing them on holiday is to avoid having hundreds of messages when I return home, but clearly I am failing to achieve this. Can somebody please explain why this happens, and how I stop it.

So my thunderbird was acting up for my two gmail accounts. Long story short, I unchecked the box which archived my gmail accounts, deleted all messages in my archives, then deleted from trash, then went into the inbox to see that all of my messages were gone. I thought I was just deleting archives but apparently not.

The only saving grace I have at this point is that I use thunderbird for all accounts on both my laptop (which I deleted from) and my desktop, which I haven't turned on since this started. Is there any way I can copy all of the files from my desktop to my gmail account? I can't lose all those damn emails....

edit: I also created a backup file of all those emails a couple of days ago. can I just drag and drop the backup into my current Thunderbird folders? I'll lose a few days worth by that method, but that's it. I'd prefer to sync everything from my desktop, though.

Hi All,
On a Packard Bell iMedia Desktop PC running W7-64 bit, I've accidentally deleted most of the emails in the 'Sent' folder of Thunderbird. A disaster. How can I get them back? I've tried 'Recuva' which does get back two compressed files which Windows cannot open. If that's where they are how can I open the files, please?
For more info, the deletion occurred because I accidentally highlighted the 'Recipient' header of the 'Sent' folder and when I moved the mouse it must have dragged across the 'Delete' button at the bottom right of the list. I suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and have numb fingers on the right and did not feel the mouse button being pressed. I've tried the 'Undo' function in the 'Edit' menu but it did not work.
There's a lot of important stuff in the deleted mails and I'd dearly like to get them back. Your prompt help would be very much appreciated.

There are two items named "Deleted" in the left-hand pane, but when I have deleted emails under "Local Folders" they still appear there when I reopen the program.

If you didn't make a backup of your outlook.pst file before the virus attack, I can think of no way to recover your emails.You must always make a backup copy of your outlook.pst file at regular intervals so you can recover your emails when disaster strikes (eg you have to re-install Windows, perform a factory recovery, or in case of hard drive failure).

I'm having difficulty recovering someone's Outlook Express emails and was hoping someone might have a solution to this (w/o the use of 3rd party apps):

The main OE mail folder and backup folders were accidently deleted. When they were deleted, a message said the Recycle Bin was full and "would you still like to continue deleting them"-or something like that. And they were deleted. Now I'm trying to recover those dbx's. I ran ActiveUndelete 5.1 and it found some dbx's-probably all the folders but they were empty when I brought them back into OE.

There are too many recovery email programs out there to run and test, so if someone can provide better help to get these emails back in OE, I would appreciate it!!! Thanks
 

Answer:Trying to recover OE emails accidently deleted

There are several good ones, usually free, at www.majorgeeks.com. I can recommend, in their Data Recovery section, Restoration, Recuva, Recovery 4 All Pro but it costs $69, File Undelete (which is good if you are needing documentation for a client, and PC Inspector.
My favorite is one I cannot find at the moment called ABC Recovery. It is free for the first 30 days. Works great on internet files.
At www.tucows.com, look for Recover My Files, Restorer2000 Data Recovery, and a few others listed there... all good.

MS Outlook help has instructions for doing this, but it doesn't appear to work in my case (the recover option doesn't appear). I'm guessing it's due to my server configuration with Comcast (due to Comcast not keeping emails on the server once they're downloaded), but I'm not sure.

I created a video on my YouTube channel showing how you can recover deleted emails in Outlook 2007. I am pretty sure that the technique demonstrated will work with 2003 or 2010 as well but I've only tested it using Outlook 2007.

This technique will only work if you haven't compacted your PST file since the time you deleted the email you are trying to recover. The basic steps are to back up your PST file, then you use a HEX editor to "damage" the file by overwriting a small section of the PST file. You then use the great utility ScanPST.exe that comes with Microsoft Office to repair the PST file. When you then open the PST file in Outlook, the emails you have deleted since the last time you compacted will be in your inbox. If you have deleted a lot of emails since you last compacted it is probably a good idea to try this with a copy of your active PST file. Then you can just open it in Outlook alongside your main PST and just move the email you want recovered back into your main folder.

Answer:How-to recover deleted emails from Outlook 2007 for free

Thanks for sharing the info and the video.

It might make for a better demo video if you open the PST file in the HEX editor after you delete the e-mails from the PST file.

As it is now, you:
...open the PST file (with all of the test e-mails in it) using the HEX editor
...open the PST file using Outlook
...delete some e-mails
...empty the Deleted Items folder
...close Outlook (which writes to the PST file)
...damage the PST file via the HEX editor
...save the damaged PST file (with all of the test e-mails in it)
...run the SCANPST utility
...repair the PST file
...open the PST file via Outlook with all of the test e-mails in it.

So - it appears that the version of the PST file that you damaged/repaired still had the deleted e-mails in it because that version of the PST file was still in RAM via the Hex editor. I'm not familiar with the HEX editor that you show (I use PSPad). I know that there are some editors that will automatically reload a file that was changed by another app. I could not tell from the video if that is what happened. So I suggest that you not keep the version in RAM (via the editor) that contains all of the test e-mails.

My guess is that you have tested this using something like this order:
...open Outlook
...delete some e-mails
...empty the Deleted Items folder
...close Outlook
...open the PST file using the HEX editor
...damage the PST file via that HEX editor
...save the damaged PST file
...run the SCANPST utility
...repair the PST file

I am a new member and this is my first post about Thunderbird email. Please excuse me if I posted in the wrong place.

I am using Thunderbird 7.0.1 with IMAP on a Windows 7 Professional 32 bit machine. I have Thunderbird setup for IMAP.

When I delete a message on my Android Cell phone using IMAP the messages delete immediately.

Periodically like today, when I want to delete an email from my Thunderbird Inbox or from the Junk folder I repeated hit the delete key on the keyboard or from the toolbar and the messages do not delete - the email stays in the folder.

Sometimes the messages delete OK but many times like today they don't delete.

Since I do not have this issue with my Android phone I am thinking Thunderbird is not communicating with the server. My incoming and outgoing mail is always OK.

Does anyone have an idea what the problem may be and how to fix it?

Thanks.

I now notice that sometimes it does bring in new mail but to which folders show new mail and when, is anyones guess. There's no pattern, completely intermittent and random. 95% of time I need to click on the inbox or folders to get it to pull the new messages.

T'bird version 2.0.0.18 running under Windows

After months of working perfectly, T'bird suddenly corrupted the e-mail folder/sub-folder structure - while I was using Thunderbird to use e-mail. I saw a "flash" or "blink" and then saw that my e-mail structure was messed up.

No messages were lost. The structure simply flattened and all messages stayed in the parent folders.

Because I use an IMAP server, the structure was corrupted on the server as well. Note: the server may have gone bad first, but I doubt it.

On the server I re-created the "tree" - the folder/subfolder structure. It now displays the correct folders/subfolders and their contents.

Thunderbird should - on the next synch - follow suit and recapture the same tree. It doesn't. It correctly displays the parent folders and the messages that are in that level. It does not display the child folders and their contents.

I have 2 computers that run Thunderbird. The same thing happened on each. In the case of the second computer, I didn't start Thunderbird until after I fixed the structure on the IMAP server, but when I started Thunderbird on the 2nd computer, it synched to the "flat", incomplete, structure instead of the structure that exists on the server.

The only change I made recently was to

uninstall and re-install the "SMTP Switch" extension
add an SMTP server

Answer:Gmail imap settings

"when I check for email messages I get 2 copies of each one"
What do you mean by "check for email messages" because with IMAP, unlike POP3, you don't go through the procedure to check for messages? The email program automatically synchronises with the IMAP server and displays new emails?

I am having a problem here. I view my email via outlook through gmail. I recently got a blackberry phone and I was told that the only way the email would delete from my phone when I erase on my computer is to receive my email via imap instead of a POP. I have nothing but problems since I did this. My imap server keeps closing my connection on me to my email and I need to re start my computer to open the connection back up. I wish I could go back to a POP but I cant erase all of the email I get both on the phone and the computer. With the amount of email I get that would take forever. Does anyone have any advice?

Answer:IMAP account through GMail or Live?

If your host allows you to run code, you could consider installing your own webmail interface like Horde/IMP or SquirrelMail or something.

I don't think you'll find any of the existing e-mail services supporting IMAP client mode, it's just too difficult to integrate. POP is easy since it's a dumb mailbox that you just poll and throw any messages in the inbox. IMAP is constantly changing and you need to track state to do anything useful with it, which would be a UI nightmare and technically difficult to implement as part of an existing mail service. Maybe there are some web-based IMAP clients out there that are just IMAP clients and let you connect to your own mail servers, but that's rather a niche and I haven't heard of any.

If you want to use the GMail interface you're probably better off just forwarding your mail there and setting up a custom from address, or setting up Apps on your domain.

Answer:Windows 7 - OUTLOOK 2010 - Gmail IMAP

You'll need to provide exact configuration for each account, just the server stuff, not login or password.

As I understand it, you have two Gmail accounts set up to receive using the IMAP protocol. And you have four accounts using the POP3 protocol. Unfortunately you didn't specify the mail server (Yahoo, AOL, Gmail....) for those accounts.

IMAP does that - you should see the sent mail on Google. I'll check to see if there's and option to also store the sent mail locally (in Outlook). You could help by providing the exact msg that you get and any error codes.

Please also fill in your System Specs (there are lots of HP machines) - see the Easy System Specs in my sig?

Hi, I did a test to see if I could restore emails to a gmail account via IMAP if they were backed up in outlook and the gmail account was empty. When I backed up the emails in outlook, I did so by syncing my gmail account with the '[Gmail]/All mail folder' in outlook (including email bodies and attachments). I next deleted all the emails in my gmail account. This subsequently led to the deletion of emails in outlook as you would expect. Finally I copied backups of all emails I made from the Outlook [Gmail]/All mail folder back to that folder

As everybody I also jumped into gmails imap protocol. Excellant decision, but as everybody knows it turns very slow. The problem is that because imap keeps on syncronizing the folders, the bigger your inbox, outbox, sent, etc. gets, the slower your gmail client is going to respond. Ontop of that for all of you who didn't yet unsubscribe from your all mail label, you are just wasting your time waiting for that inbox to load. hence the first thing is to unsubscribe from the all mail label ( after all those are only duplicates). second you have to keep it as empty as possible.

Here comes my problem.
I get plenty of email from my business associates friends etc, and my inbox always turns full. (slowing everything in gmail) I don't want to delete any of them, just would like it if there were an option to AUTO move all my email older than a specific date to another folder, (local or another gmail account.) in outlook there is the option called archive or rather auto archive. however it won't work with my gmail setup using imap.

I am having trouble instructing Outlook 2003 to work with Gmail using IMAP folders/labels, or perhaps I do not understand the workings of IMAP well enough (having previously used POP).

The default IMAP folder presentation is confusing in that it includes "BIN, Deleted Items, Deleted Messages and Trash" folders and "Spam, Junk and Junk Email" folders - which all sound respectively the same. I cannot find an indication of what will be sent where, and how to set up Outlook to send Drafts, Deleted, or Spam/Junk messages to the IMAP folders (rather than the Personal folders) so that I can pick these up on other computers (my laptop when away from home).

Can anybody assist or point me to an appropriate tutorial/help page?

The question really says all about what I want to do, or need help on. I recently signed up for a new outlook account to try out the new outlook preview and I've set up gmail to automatically forward new messages to my outlook account so that I can use outlook to manage my gmail account.

Do any of you know how I would be able to forward the old messages, and not the new ones, to my outlook? I already know that they can be fetched into outlook by outlook's very own service, forwarding would be faster, so..?! Also, since I now use outlook to send email on behalf of my gmail account, how do I make it sync each email I send using outlook with my gmail - so that gmail has it all?

TY in advance. Please do help.
