This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Configuring JIRA to Receive Email from a POP or IMAP Mail Server
I want to add comments to JIRA via email but am unable to complete the setup. I have enabled IMAP in gmail settings. Everytime i try to Add a Pop/Imap Mail server by choosing the service provider as Custom and protocol as IMAP, i get a "SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out" error. When i choose the service provider as Google Apps Mail/Gmail IMAP, i get a "AuthenticationFailedException: [ALERT] Please log in via your web browser: (Failure)" error on Testing the connection.
Is there any specific username/password that i need to specify to get the connection set or am i missing something to get this up and running?
Thanks Yogesh. I double checked the username and password and they are correct. The username description says ''The username used to authenticate your POP / IMAP account.'' What username/password is this?
Is it what i use to login to JIRA? Or is it my official mail id in which IMAP is enabled?
