IMAP login stopped working

Post by darrenings » Sun Jul 22, 2018 1:26 am

Thursday this past week one of my rollernet accounts stopped working.

I’ve just tried resetting the password but still not working - at least until I removed the character @ from the password then it works.

I’m using iPhone for email access but with @ as a character in the password string the iPhone was failing to validate the settings. Once I changed password to something different it works now.

Did something change this week that would have caused this?

Thanks
Darren

I would recommend trying to log in with webmail using the problem password to see if it works there or not. If webmail works then it's probably the iPhone that changed. We haven't done any new dev work on the hosted mail server itself in quite a long time.
