    Question [SOLVED] Imapsync: Auth [LOGIN]: 3 no cleartext login DISABLED

    We have an old email server running Postfix/IMAP4, and new email server running Zimbra Network Edition under Ubuntu AMD64 OS.

    I was trying to run imapsync to sync my old email box to new zimbra mail box. The command I type was:
    ./imapsync --nosyncacls --subscribe --syncinternaldates --host1 oldmailserver --user1 myaccountname --password1 mypasswd --host2 zimbramailserver --user2 myzimbraaccount --password2 myzimbrapasswd --noauthmd5

    I have enabled clear text logins, but still received an error from my zimbra server, which is:
    error login : [host2] with user [user2] auth [LOGIN]: 3 NO cleartext logins disabled

    3 NO cleartext logins disabled
    ...propagated at /usr/bin/imapsync line 676.

    tried the same flags but adding -ssl2 and then still get
    Error connecting to host2:993:

    Is there anything else I should enable or check?

    Try restarting the Zimbra server.

    I did it. But still didn't work. So I uninstalled Zimbra, made a clean installation again and enabled clear text login before I install imapsync. This time imapsync worked.... Thanks a lot for your information.

    Default Imapsync: Qmail to Zimbra

    Used a script on the zimbra wiki to install imapsync. Was also having the same difficulty syncing mail.
    ...NO clear text passwords not...

    After enabling clear text on Zimbra, I restarted the server but still it wasn't working.
    I updated my perl installation, run the enable cleartext command and then restarted zimbra and everything worked just fine.

    This is the command I used..
    imapsync --buffersize 8192000 --subscribe --nosyncacls --syncinternaldates \
    --host1 $host1 --user1 "$user" --password1 "$p1" \
    --host2 $host2 --user2 "$user" --password2 "$p1" \

    Got my scripts and instructions from the Zimbra Wiki. Thanks guys.
    Running 5.0.8 on CentOS 5 and moving from Qmail.
