By 'not' working I mean that I'm not getting replies from my clients that go back 'into' Odoo...although some of them I have found when using my ISP's webmail service for the individual email accounts (not part of Odoo).

Also, if I try to Fetch email or Reset Confirmation, the 'wheel' just keeps spinning indefinitely.  See, for example, this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/tue2jiher2d7jqq/NotWorking2.png?dl=0

The last Fetch date for most of the accounts is quite old (but I'm not sure if this reflects when the software went out on its own to Fetch the emails or the last time that I manually tried to Fetch emails.  See this:


Thank you (Ray) for responding to my query.  I can't 'reset confirmation' because it just goes into loading mode (little wheel circling around) that never ends.  In a similar vein, I haven't used any third party software so am ruling that out (despite it being an excellent suggestion).  The idea of looking at logs is something that I guess I should have thought of...will be looking at that and will report back, for the record....

>> I edit the email accounts it does not let me edit the email address or the password (both are disabled fields)
Press the button 'reset confirmation' > Odoo would let change it > Confirm it back

If credentials are correct, a possible reason might be not in email server configuration, but in parsing certain emails. Odoo tries to proceed an email, but can't do it. It frequently happens when you overwrite message_new method (e.g. you use some community-built app). It may be any pure Python or encoding error, rigid logic of parsing text blocks etc. 

I guess, before coping with the server configuration you should:

  1. Study Odoo server logs when you try to fetch emails. Are there any errors or warnings?

  2. Try to 'clean' your inbox for a while. For example, put all emails to a new folder. Then, send a blank email to alias address and fetch emails.

Another possibility might be linked to your email server provider, which blocks Odoo to get emails. This would be also shown in Odoo server logs.
