IMAP error reported by server

The IMAP errors occur when there is an issue with the incoming mails or mail syncing. Some of the common IMAP errors are:

  • Step 1:“Error connecting to mail server” which occurs when the IMAP server could not connect to the email account.
  • Step 2:When the IMAP server connection becomes disconnected, the error “IMAP connection broken” appears.
  • Step 3:“IMAP: Connection Closed” shows up when the IMAP connection is not authenticated, so the connection ended.
  • Step 4:The error “There was an issue with your IMAP settings” can occur when the IMAP server settings are wrong, and thus a proper connection cannot be established.
  • Step 6:“Authentication failed” error can be seen when an incorrect username or password is used to access the mail account.
