Unable to create incoming mail POP / IMAP Mail Server

Hi All

I am trying to set up an incoming mail server on Jira. However, I am receiving this error when trying to test the connection, see UI below:

Unfortunately no connection was possible. Review the errors below and rectify:
AuthenticationFailedException: LOGIN failed.

I have tried adding the following parameters in the JVM System property however no joy:

-Dmail.imap.auth.plain.disable=true
-Dmail.imap.auth.ntlm.disable=true
-Dmail.imap.auth.gssapi.disable=true

The log file is as follows:

Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks,

I've seen this a couple of times, with different causes, and the only way to debug it properly is to ask the Exchange admins to debug it on their side.  In both cases, it was a setting on the server side as well (I can't remember what the second one was, but the first time, it was because the account had only been set up to be used by Outlook, which is a monumentally dumb setting to allow in a mail server)
