Routing: posting a message without model should be with a parent_id (private mesage)

 I configure my incoming mail server(IMAP) and my outgoing server(SMTP) with a gmail account.
Outgoing is ok, I can send email, oders, etc.
Then, if I receive a reply from my mail(outgoing), I got it in ODOO Inbox.

The problem is that when someone send me an email directly to my admin email adress, I got an error:

openerp.addons.fetchmail.fetchmail: Failed to process mail from imap server gmail in.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/odoo/odoo-server/addons/fetchmail/fetchmail.py", line 194, in fetch_mail

raise ValueError('Routing: posting a message without model should be with a parent_id (private mesage).')
ValueError: Routing: posting a message without model should be with a parent_id (private mesage).

I tried this solution (https://accounts.odoo.com/fr_FR/forum/help-1/question/valueerror-routing-posting-a-message-without-model-should-be-with-a-parent-id-private-mesage-77116), but I think it's not compatible with ODOO V9, because I always got a Warning:

openerp.modules.loading: invalid module names, ignored: s2ubasev8

So, I wondering, if it's possible to receive an email in ODOO when it's not a reply (Imagine that a vendor want to send me a new catalog...).

I already tried outlook.fr email, but same problem.

I encountered the same problem. I am using odoo v9 Enterprise Edition. The solution is to configure the user. Go to Settings -> Users -> Users. Open some user and enter his email.In the tab Preferences the field "Email Messages and Notification" enter "All messages". Now when an email is fetched, it will generate message in the Discuss app. You can also configure the incoming server "Create a New Record" if you need to create some task, etc..

check this module https://github.com/thinkopensolutions/tko-social/tree/8.0/tko_fix_mail_private_message_exception

this solution fixes it, even if you receive an email from a mailing list with the header TO: to an existent alias.

It worked for me only when I setup the alias Domain and mail alias properly.
Hope this will help someone: https://agipme.fr/2016/09/odoo-9-configuration-des-mails-entrants.html
