Roundcube can't connect to Gmail anymore
« on: October 31, 2010, 12:32:17 PM »
Hi,

I've been using Gmail on Roundcube (via IMAP) for the last year without problems. However, I had to do a server switch recently and I also made an update to the lastest stable version (0.4.2). Now, every time I try to connect, I get a connection error (Could not connect to ssl://imap.gmail.com:993: Permission denied).

Here's a copy of my config file:

Code: [Select]
// the mail host chosen to perform the log-in
// leave blank to show a textbox at login, give a list of hosts
// to display a pulldown menu or set one host as string.
// To use SSL/TLS connection, enter hostname with prefix ssl:// or tls://
$rcmail_config['default_host'] = 'ssl://imap.gmail.com';

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

// IMAP auth type. Can be "auth" (CRAM-MD5), "plain" (PLAIN) or "check" to auto detect.
// Optional, defaults to "check"
$rcmail_config['imap_auth_type'] = null;

// If you know your imap's root directory and its folder delimiter,
// you can specify them here. Otherwise they will be determined automatically.
$rcmail_config['imap_root'] = null;
$rcmail_config['imap_delimiter'] = null;

// 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'] = 'gmail.com';

// 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'] = 'gmail.com';

// 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 column
// and optional identity name as second column
$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
// Use %h variable as replacement for user's IMAP hostname
$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'] = '';

Would you think the problem is on the server part or because the config file is not cmopatible with the newer version of Roundcube?

Thanks.

The firewall on the server is most likely blocking the connection to gmail.

Try imap_auth_type 'plain'.
