JIRA (OnDemand) Service Desk 2.0 has setting to allow customers to contact service desk via email. Customers can create a request by sending an email, and respond to comments from agents via email as well.
However, when adding my exchange online email account with following settings
email protocol: SECURE IMAP
mail server: outlook.office365.com
port number: 993
i get following notification:
BYE JavaMail Exception: java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out
Is exchange online supported, and if not, when can we expect this feature to be updated to JIRA OnDemand?
Hi Timo Pitkäranta,
What did you use to setup the email channel to office365? I tried to create the same thing using trial account of office365 and it works as expected. Please find in the screenshot information of the setting that I used.

Thanks for the reply.
We set up a test account, and used it to login to https://portal.microsoftonline.com
Office365 asked to change the password on initial login, so we changed it.
I tried to access to Outlook Web App in Office365, and it worked ok.
Now when we tried to configure this same account to JIRA Service Desk email settings
the same way you did, we still got the same read timeout error message. The only
difference to your settings is that we have our company's domain-name in the email address
Does this email have to exist in JIRA as a user account as well?
This is not public service desk, but that shouldn't matter?
Hi timo pitkäranta, There's no precondition with setting up the email channel. That said, you setup things properly already. The actual problem is, somehow office365.com takes longer time than expected to process our request. As it's out of our expected time window, the exception was raised. We are working on increasing the duration of the time window in order to increase the compatibility with email services.
