Internet SMTP/IMAP Server Failed to Connect to IMAP Server With Error "JMailClient Object Failed To Connect To The Email Server" (Doc ID 1598898.1)

Last updated on MARCH 02, 2017

Applies to:

Siebel eMail Response and Smart Answer Package - Version SIA [21229] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
After configure Siebel Email Response in a test environment the Internet SMTP/IMAP Server driver keep showing error: "JMailClient object failed to connect to the email server".

The error can be observed on IMAPSMTP_xxxx_x_x_xxxxxx_xxxxxx.log files.

The IMAP Account been used works fine using another IMAP email client. So the problem seems related to Internet SMTP/IMAP Server driver from Siebel trying to connect with the IMAP Server.


In IMAPSMTP_67CA_5_7_5549FE9B_290A8F2C.log the Internet SMTP/IMAP Server driver tries to connect to the IMAP Server but got the following error message:

Could not connect to email server. JMail client in invalid state!

nullAUTHENTICATE failed.[Ljava.lang.StackTraceElement;@15a0305

IMAPSMTP[11/06/2013 08:12:49:348]:ERROR:Failed to connect to the email server!
