    Default POP3 error, loading from gmail

    I am trying to migrate from Google Accounts to Zimbra. I have set up a POP3 aggregator from my gmail account, and it receives 403 messages, and then gives me the following error:

    Pop account Gmail2 failed.
    system failure: null


    The system error didn't seem too helpful, so I found some more information in mailbox.log and pasted it below. Any advice?

    Here is what I got from mailbox.log

    Thanks for letting us know about the error reporting bug. We should definitely be logging something more useful than "null" when the exception has no message. I'll fix that.

    As far as the actual problem, is something making changes to your GMail account while the POP3 import is running? That's the only thing I can think of when I see "MessageRemovedException".

    I don't think I was making changes. It's dealing with messages from 8 months ago (from Google Apps), and I am not touching those.

    Probably a longshot, but I notice the data source is called "Gmail 2". Is there a "Gmail 1"? Any chance that you have another data source defined which is importing from the same account at the same time?

    I played around abit on the server, and it seems to be working now. I am running Debian for Zimbra, and I apt-get'd webmin and webmin-fetchmail, and tested it out using that (using the script from contrib), and it worked.

    The downside to that method was it didn't keep the dates from the e-mails. However, now the pop aggregator in Zimbra seems to be working.

    I took another look at the code. From what I can tell, MessageRemovedException is thrown when someone moves or deletes a message while the POP3 import is running. I've filed a bug for this issue:

    http://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=15438

    In the meantime, the only thing I can suggest is to make sure you're not reading your Yahoo mail via their web UI while the import is running.
