We are trying to configure IMAP Mailbox app for Splunk with a Google Apps for Education account and receiving the follow error.
"11-29-2016 14:12:39.207 +1000 ERROR ExecProcessor - message from "python /app/splunk/etc/apps/IMAPmailbox/bin/get_imap_email.py" __main__.LoginError: Could not log into server: imap.gmail.com with password provided"
I can confirm the IMAP details are correct and have tested them with a desktop mail client. I suspect the issue is that the account requires user interaction to allow IMAP Mailbox/Splunk access to the account. For example when configuring Thunderbird there is a pop up to permit access.
IMAP Mailbox does not prompt to allow this access.
Do you have any advice on how to authorize IMAP Mailbox to access the Google Apps account or any info on what API scopes would need to be authorized so that IMAP Mailbox could access the account?
We have been in touch with the developer and between us we haven't found an answer yet.
Please help! 🙂
It might not be an answer but here are a handful of things to check with your account and configuration that could be messing things up:
port=993in your app configuration?
Hi acharlieh, We have tried all of those settings and are still coming up empty.
If you have any other ideas, please let me know.
