Google app email not working as an incoming email server

Dear all,

I am almost there and I am facing an issue with my google apps account. When adding the imap or Pop account, I receive this when testing:

Connection test failed!

Here is what we got instead:
[AUTHENTICATIONFAILED] Invalid credentials (Failure).

I know my creds are OK.

My normal gmail account is working when I use it. I suppose it is gmail blocking a suspect connection from their hand, but all google searches or solutions related to this have done nothing. Uncaptcha for Google Apps did not the trick.

So my question is: How can I make my apps email working, as this is the one I am using for my domains all the addresses. 

Thanks in advance,


Hi Haider, did you get an answer to your question to get everything working?

Hello, yes it worked I tried many ways but for a while only my normal gmail account worked. I created a specific user then like catchall@your-domain.xxx and used the imap settings again. Then it worked. Hope that helps.
