Net::IMAP problem

Hello all,

My Ruby script:

require “net/imap”
imap = Net::IMAP.new(‘my server’)
imap.authenticate(‘LOGIN’,‘myuser’,‘mypassword’)

On the 3rd line I get a “NO response” exception raised (indicating that
the IMAP server replied “NO”) and the error message
“Net::IMAP::NoResponseError: Unsupported authentication mechanism” If I
change ‘LOGIN’ to ‘CRAM-MD5’ (the other value supported by Net::IMAP)
then I get a similar (but not identical) error:
“Net::IMAP::NoResponseError: Authentication failed: Unsupported
authentication mechanism” If I use anything other than either ‘LOGIN’ or
‘CRAM-MD5’ I get an error from the Net::IMAP library saying “Unknown
auth type” - which is reasonable.

So can you people tell me that what should i do to get rid of this…

You may want to ask this on the Ruby list…

But since you’re trying LOGIN authentication, have you tried using the
Net::IMAP#login method? Also, what does imap.capability say?
