Hi,

what does a Re-Authentication Failure mean? A quick Google didn't give me any clear answers. Here is the log from my customer:

Unfortunately, I have no idea on this one.

One-line error messages are typically useless and cause much time to be wasted in determining the cause of an error.

I would try to find out what "brand"/implemenation of IMAP server this is. Then search for "re-authentication failure <brand>".

Hi,

thanks! I'll ask the customer. When IT is using Outlook then I'm betting on Exchange. I've googled this and found only Windows stuff.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen/Regards

Thanks Beatrix,

The mention of "proxy" in this session log line:

  • OK IMAP4 Ready iproxy9.xxxxxxxxxx.ca 00021059

makes me think it's somehow related to an intermediate/proxy. Maybe external clients connect to "iproxy9.xxxx.ca", which behaves as an IMAP server (and from the IMAP client's point of view is no different than an actual IMAP server), but under-the-covers interacts with the actual IMAP server located behind a firewall. (This is just a theory.) Maybe the authentication to a user-account on the iproxy9 is translated/routed/mapped to something on the actual server, and this is the cause for "re-authentication failure" as opposed to simply "authentication failure"? Maybe the problem is somehow within the administration/setup of the accounts having to do with iproxy9?
