After hitting #2216, I generated an IMAP password for fastmail, but my credentials are always rejected.
Steps to reproduce the behavior:
- Open mailspring.
- Log into a mailspring account.
- Select fastmail as a provider.
- Visit Fastmail.
- Generate an app password (IMAP, read-only: false).
- Provide that password to mailspring.
App password should work
The password is rejected. I’ve generated it a few times, and both copy-pasted and manually typed, just to make sure there’s not dumb issues like that.
The log file provided says (there’s some weird encoding issues in the file, but I don’t think that’s relevant):
