Error while syncing


I have used Mailspring since December. I have been quite happy with it.
Last Friday, my mailbox had this message: “Encountered an error while syncing. Try Again.”
I have tried again and again.
I use Windows 10. I went to Settings, Preferences, and checked my settings for the Mailspring account.
All are correct.
My mail is available on my server, but not reaching my desktop.
Any suggestions?

  • Mailspring Version: 1.8.0-8983dca2

If you go to Settings and Subscriptions, do you get this error message?

Your Mailspring ID is missing required fields.

Hi Jason:
Do you mean Settings in Mailspring or in Windows 10?
For Mailspring, I located a Subscriptions folder and it indicated no problem. I have Mailspring Basic.
thanks, Mark

I did indeed mean Mailspring settings.

Even though your Mailspring Pro account seems to be working, I wonder if this is having trouble accessing the password stored on the system. Let’s try resetting Mailspring, if you don’t mind.

Quit Mailspring and delete its data in C:\Users\<You>\AppData\Roaming\Mailspring . Then, re-launch Mailspring and sign in to your Mailspring ID and email account again.

Does that resolve the issue?
