Thats right Google has gone to imap, So you can now access your Google account from roundcube! You first need to enable in in your Gmail account (Note, This has not been installed on all gmail accounts yet, don't worry it will be there in the next couple of days). Here is were the data is: http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=78799

Hi,

I got it up and running - but I not able to send emails using googles imaps server....

it tells me:
Code: [Select]
[[02-Nov-2007 10:17:40 +0100] SMTP Error: SMTP error: Authentication failure: SMTP server does no support authentication in /var/www/roundcubemail_svn/trunk/roundcubemail/program/steps/mail/sendmail.inc on line 334

my conf looks like:
Code: [Select]
// use this host for sending mails.
// to use SSL connection, set ssl://smtp.host.com
// if left blank, the PHP mail() function is used
$rcmail_config['smtp_server'] = 'smtp.gmail.com';

// SMTP port (default is 25; 465 for SSL)
$rcmail_config['smtp_port'] = 465

// SMTP username (if required) if you use %u as the username RoundCube
// will use the current username for login
$rcmail_config['smtp_user'] = 'xxxx@gmail.com';

// SMTP password (if required) if you use %p as the password RoundCube
// will use the current user's password for login
$rcmail_config['smtp_pass'] = 'xxxx';

// SMTP AUTH type (DIGEST-MD5, CRAM-MD5, LOGIN, PLAIN or empty to use
// best server supported one)
$rcmail_config['smtp_auth_type'] = 'LOGIN';

// SMTP HELO host
// Hostname to give to the remote server for SMTP 'HELO' or 'EHLO' messages IN
// Leave this blank and you will get the server variable 'server_name' or
// localhost if that isn't defined.
$rcmail_config['smtp_helo_host'] = '';

// Log sent messages
$rcmail_config['smtp_log'] = TRUE;

Has anyone set it up with googles imap server ?

Thx

Try using this as your smtp server:
Code: [Select]
$rcmail_config['smtp_server'] = 'ssl://smtp.gmail.com';

OK, in my case it was because my ISP was blocking the ports needed for GMail's ssl to IMAP.

Hi all,

I've some trouble to send mail from RC (Imap access works fine).

Here's a part of my config file:
Code: [Select]
// Automatically add this domain to user names for login
// Only for IMAP servers that require full e-mail addresses for login
// Specify an array with 'host' => 'domain' values to support multiple hosts
$rcmail_config['username_domain'] = '';

// This domain will be used to form e-mail addresses of new users
// Specify an array with 'host' => 'domain' values to support multiple hosts
$rcmail_config['mail_domain'] = '';

// Path to a virtuser table file to resolve user names and e-mail addresses
$rcmail_config['virtuser_file'] = '';

// Query to resolve user names and e-mail addresses from the database
// %u will be replaced with the current username for login.
// The query should select the user's e-mail address as first col
$rcmail_config['virtuser_query'] = '';

// use this host for sending mails.
// to use SSL connection, set ssl://smtp.host.com
// if left blank, the PHP mail() function is used
$rcmail_config['smtp_server'] = 'ssl://smtp.gmail.com';

// SMTP port (default is 25; 465 for SSL)
$rcmail_config['smtp_port'] = 465;

// SMTP username (if required) if you use %u as the username RoundCube
// will use the current username for login
$rcmail_config['smtp_user'] = '%u';

// SMTP password (if required) if you use %p as the password RoundCube
// will use the current user's password for login
$rcmail_config['smtp_pass'] = '%p';

// SMTP AUTH type (DIGEST-MD5, CRAM-MD5, LOGIN, PLAIN or empty to use
// best server supported one)
$rcmail_config['smtp_auth_type'] = 'LOGIN';



The message given by errors log file is:
Quote
[27-Nov-2007 02:12:20 +0100] SMTP Error: SMTP error: Failed to set sender 'mymail@gmail.com' in /usr/share/roundcube/program/steps/mail/sendmail.inc on line 340

I've checked my server and router firewalls, all necessary ports are opened on the both devices (I can open a socket with a telnet on smtp and imap server on port 465 and 993)

I've tried to replace $rcmail_config['smtp_user'] and $rcmail_config['smtp_pass'] by my mail and my password rather than %u and %p, no more lucky...

I've no more idea...

Thks for your help

How long does it take to show the results when you perform a search if you have a large mailbox with many email messages in your inbox? ::)

I've got the 0.1 stable working flawlessly with GMail.
From main.inc.php:
Code: [Select]
$rcmail_config['default_host'] = 'ssl://imap.gmail.com';

// TCP port used for IMAP connections
$rcmail_config['default_port'] = 993;

$rcmail_config['smtp_server'] = 'ssl://smtp.gmail.com';

// SMTP port (default is 25; 465 for SSL)
$rcmail_config['smtp_port'] = 465;

// SMTP username (if required) if you use %u as the username RoundCube
// will use the current username for login
$rcmail_config['smtp_user'] = '%u';

// SMTP password (if required) if you use %p as the password RoundCube
// will use the current user's password for login
$rcmail_config['smtp_pass'] = '%p';

// SMTP AUTH type (DIGEST-MD5, CRAM-MD5, LOGIN, PLAIN or empty to use
// best server supported one)
$rcmail_config['smtp_auth_type'] = '';

Works flawlessly.

1&1 - You won't believe it.
« Reply #14 on: September 16, 2008, 03:48:44 PM »
If you are using 1&1 and getting the "Authentication failure: SMTP server does no support authentication", try this. Remove the username and password from the smtp config. It worked for me. Makes me cringe that you can connect without them, but it works. At least for now!
