I’m trying to add a Gmail account to K-9 (currently using whatever latest beta is, on Android 11).
This is a new Gmail account and I thought I would try IMAP (all my other accounts in K-9 are POP3). Enabled in gmail settings on computer.
When I add the account to K-9, for Incoming Server Settings, it’s auto populated the right info according to gmail (server=imap.gmail.com, Security=SSL/TLS, Port=993, Username=[my email address], Authentication=Normal password, Password=[correct password], Auto-detect IMAP namespace is checked, and Use compression on all networks).
When I press Next, I get this error:
Setup could not finish
Username or password incorrect. (Command: sensitive; response: #3# [NO, [AUTHENTICATIONFAILED], Invalid credentials (Failure)])
with a choice of Continue or Edit Details.
Am I doing something wrong? I’ve never used IMAP and I’m okay with doing this on POP3, but this seems a good opportunity to learn IMAP on a (hopefully) low-volume Gmail account.
