SSL handshake error

Reported by Stefan Piatek | December 13th, 2013 @ 09:32 AM

This email account was working up until about a couple of days ago, maybe with my update to 1.7.1 but not sure. Here's the log file after the error message, the login details are correct and I can access the account using other platforms.

    It looks like a server problem. Could you ask your IT department?

    I get the following if I try to connect to the server manually without using MailMate:

    > openssl s_client -connect exchange.imperial.ac.uk:imaps
    140735247878588:error:140770FC:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:unknown protocol:s23_clnt.c:766:

    @Stefan: Well, MailMate has not changed behavior which makes me think that the server has changed behavior. If you open the Activity Viewer (⌥⌘0) and find the connection to the server then we could analyze the connection attempt (which ends with NO AUTHENTICATE) and see if MailMate is doing something wrong.

    @Majiec: That's not related. I have no other reports about this (for Gmail). Let me know if it does not stop.

    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”

    Since MailMate didn't change over the weekend then I'll also assume it was a server problem :-) Thanks for the update.
