Bug Description

When I want to connect to gmail using unity-mail, there seems to be a connection problem.
Output when running in a terminal:

Unity-Mail: INFO: Connection #0 established
Unity-Mail: WARNING: Timeout error occured in connection #0

um-config is conifgured as follows:

imap.gmail.com port 993

I'm running Ubuntu 14.10

Do you still get emails about notifications? What happens if you wait for about a minute?

Everything works fine here with the same settings.

Changed in unity-mail:
status: New → Incomplete

No, no notifications about nothing.

If I wait longer this repeats eternally:

Unity-Mail: INFO: Connection #0 established
Unity-Mail: WARNING: Timeout error occured in connection #0
Unity-Mail: INFO: Connection #0 established
Unity-Mail: WARNING: Timeout error occured in connection #0
Unity-Mail: INFO: Connection #0 established
Unity-Mail: WARNING: Timeout error occured in connection #0

etc...

Is there a way to reset everything? Is there a file I can delete in order to reset the whole configuration? Deleting ~/.config/unity-mail.conf doesn't reset/clear my configuration...

Can you go to GMail settings and make sure you have IMAP enabled (in "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" tab)?

To reset settings, open seahorse app ("Passwords and keys"), search for "unity-mail" and delete all found entries.

Ok, so it seems. Deleting the key and adding a new one resolved the problem. No idea why this happened but thanks anyway :)
