Warmest greetings to you
I wonder if anyone is successfully using offlineimap to connect to Apple's icloud service on imap.mail.me.com?
My login fails to authenticate, and I have not been able to find any advice on this specific situation. Please excuse my ignorance.
I'm running offlineimap on a Mac OS X 10.9, and am successfully downloading from gmail. However, icloud gives the following :
> ERROR: Exceptions occurred during the run!
> ERROR: All authentication types failed:
> PLAIN: [AUTHENTICATIONFAILED] Authentication failed
> LOGIN: command: LOGIN => socket error: <type 'exceptions.IOError'> - Too many read 0
> [imap]: 52:29.20 Account sync home CAPABILITY: ('ST11P00MM-ISCREAM002', '1U25', 'XAPPLEPUSHSERVICE', 'IMAP4', 'IMAP4REV1', 'SASL-IR', 'AUTH=ATOKEN', 'AUTH=PLAIN')
> [imap]: 52:29.20 Account sync home [sync] AUTHENTICATE ('PLAIN',)
> [imap]: 52:32.91 imap.mail.me.com handler NO response: [AUTHENTICATIONFAILED] Authentication failed
Here is the relevant section of .offlineimaprc :
> remotehost = imap.mail.me.com
> # remotehost = p02-imap.mail.me.com
> remoteuser = xxx
> # remotepass = xxxx
> type = IMAP
> ssl = yes
> cert_fingerprint = 13db1ba7073b75443c52a14c3bae0cc9d478567c
How can I configure offlineimap to authenticate in one of the ways icloud accepts (obviously although it specifies 'AUTH=PLAIN' it doesn't mean it?!)
I see that on Mail.app, the account setting specifies "Apple Token" - I'm not sure what that is...., but it is presumably what is offered with 'AUTH=ATOKEN'
Any advice or help would be very very gratefully received!
