    Hi all
    I have installed IspConfig following the tutorial from "The Perfect Server - Debian 10", and it works great.
    I'm writing a simple bot in a remote raspberryPi, that needs to read mail from an imap (push) account on this server.
    The problem is that Fetchmail keeps giving me an authentication error (username and password are correct) and I can't get the bot to read the email from your account.

    Are there any fetchmail examples, working with the standard ispconfig configuration?

    There is nothing specific for ISPConfig, the mail system on your server is just a standard dovecot IMAP server which you can connect to with any pop3 or IMAP client. Just take care to use the right username (which is always the full email address e.g. '[email protected]') and the right password.

    Maybe you have a certificate issue? Sometimes generic error handlers misstate the actual problem.
