Description dani_kase 2017-04-17 03:47:37 UTC
I am able to send Gmail messages through Kmail but not receive. Not a single message is received by Kmail client. :( I'm very disappointed with the situation. It shouldn't be a pain to setup an email client with a famous email provider.

The company utilizes gmail as the email provider. So I try to use imap.gmail.com. Once kmail detects that this is imap.gmail.com, several cocnfiguration options are disabled. It tries the first time, asks gmail login credentials through a limited web like interface. Even after providing the info, in the aftermath it doesn't work.

Same for me, but maybe this is a duplicate of 378876?

[IMAP] Fix migration to new Gmail authentication

Currently the settings would be migrated only if user opened the
Settings dialog. The GmailPasswordRequester expects that the server
settings is migrated correctly and always tries to authenticate via
XOAUTH2, even if the configuration says "PLAIN" or other mechanism.
This breaks login as we try to send XOAUTH2 tokens as PLAIN credentials.

This change ensures that the encryption and auth mechanism settings
is correctly migrated on resource startup.

There's a bug in Kubuntu/Neon packages that breaks Gmail login: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=379089

Closing as downstream issue.
