Will IMAP Mailbox work for Splunk 6.3?

New Member

I have installed the IMAP Mailbox application in version 6.2.x and everything works fine.
After I have updated to 6.3.0, the IMAP application stopped working.

When I try to run getimapemail.py, it gives:

DEBUG:root:EOF occurred in violation of protocol (_ssl.c:595)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "get_imap_email.py", line 331, in getMail
    M = imaplib.IMAP4_SSL(self.server,int(self.port))
  File "/home/splunk/lib/python2.7/imaplib.py", line 1165, in __init__
    IMAP4.__init__(self, host, port)
  File "/home/splunk/lib/python2.7/imaplib.py", line 172, in __init__
    self.open(host, port)

    self.sslobj = ssl.wrap_socket(self.sock, self.keyfile, self.certfile)

    self._sslobj.do_handshake()

    raise LoginError('Could not log into server: %s with password provided' % self.server)
__main__.LoginError: Could not log into server:   with password provided
I have another server with same configuration and Splunk 6.2.
And everything works fine..

Is there any problems for IMAP mailbox running on Splunk 6.3?

Hi @loje

Looking at the app's page on Splunkbase (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1739/ ), Splunk 6.3 is not listed as one of the supported versions. Only Splunk 6.0, 6.1, and 6.2 are shown. Hopefully the developer of the app will answer/comment here with an update for you if there are plans to make it compatible with 6.3.

I have upgraded my system to 6.3.0. I use SSL IMAP to gmail and am getting no errors. Is the server you are connecting too have a self-signed cert? Is it running SSL v1 or v2 or TLS?

Appears there is a python ssl bug. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14102416/python-requests-requests-exceptions-sslerror-errno-8-ss...

Since I can't reproduce, I'm not sure if the suggested fixes will help.
