fetching emails from POP3 under Windows

Added by Susie Su over 1 year ago


I have Redmine running locally under Windows 10.

  Redmine version                3.4.6.stable
  Ruby version                   2.4.4-p296 (2018-03-28) [x64-mingw32]
  Rails version                  4.2.8
  Environment                    production
  Database adapter               SQLite
  Git                            2.16.2
Redmine plugins:
  redmine_issues_tree            0.0.12

I try to fetch emails from a POP3 account. I use the following command:

rake redmine:email:receive_pop3 host=xxx.xxx.com port=995 ssl=1 username=uuu@yyy.com password=zzz RAILS_ENV=production unknown_user=accept no_permission_check=1 project=MyProject allow_override=project,tracker,status,priority move_on_success=read move_on_failure=failed --trace

The content of the email I have sent to the above mailbox is:

Project: MyProject
Tracker: Bug
Status: New
Priority: Normal

Executing the rake command as shown above I get:

** Invoke redmine:email:receive_pop3 (first_time)
** Invoke environment (first_time)
** Execute environment
** Execute redmine:email:receive_pop3


The connection to the mailbox seem to work. But there is nothing happening in Redmine. No issue is added, nor is there any other changes. What could I try to find the problem?

My second question concerns the

options. Are these options only for IMAP accounts or do they work for POP3 as well? If they work for POP3 in which mailboxes or folders are the emails moved?
