XF 1.5 Automated Email Bounce not Working

Discussion in 'XenForo Questions and Support' started by directodigital, Jul 26, 2016.

  1. I am trying to get the automatic email bounce to process. I have tried POP and IMAP - the settings work on Thunderbird but not on XenForo.

    Here are my settings (I changed it for security/privacy reasons)


    The error log:


    In that error log:

    I have tried IMAP and POP neither are working. Ports are correct, password is correct.
    The server connects find to send out e-mails on this same server.
  2. Update: I changed the password not to have a special character in and it has just processed for the first time. Happy days!
  3. Hi, I set up the automated bounced email handler as attached, but now getting server errors (last request failed). There is now a gmail message that they blocked access until I allow "less secure apps" to access the bounced email account.? In the gmail admin, there is no such option. Am I doing something wrong here? Thank you everyone. Capture.PNG

    Did you google this? I used "gmail less secure apps" and the first result is exact .... https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6010255?hl=en
  5. Lol. Ok, kick in the ass accepted. Thanks. I waded thru gmail support site, found the button in admin for the domain, and then allowed less secure apps access. Seems to be fine now, no server errors in 2-3 days. Thank you.
