I had a mail config in use where everything worked (deliver mail via SMTP 465 (Type: SSL)) and receiving via IMAP 993 (Type: SSL). Now, I was requested by my employer to change the password. Bumm! Nothing works now. Really nothing!
- The current config is not accepted by the application anymore (no receiving mail)
- Deleting the account and recreating it does not works (timeout while checking the new config)
- done via system preferences and directly via mail application
How can this happen? The exact same config (connection to the mail server) was working! Incredible (I am talking about “mail”, a basic service)!
