iPhone 6 “Cannot Get Mail The mail server Imap.gmail.com is not responding. Please make sure you have added the correct account in mail settings”

Both my iPhone 6 & my Lenovo Yoga 80 with Windows 10 will not send or show new emails. Also Lenovo I cannot delete files, or copy/paste. The Lenovo was the only device taken to repair guy 8/27/2020, but I used my iPhone 6 for its hotspot & usb tethered it to the Lenovo to transfer photos (which didn’t work) Now I see he added me to a Domain, he added an email I do not own to my Lenovo admin, lowered all security, home screen has Microsoft Edge & Personal Edge on Lenovo. I had $800 missing from my bank in May. A common “friend” offered HIS WiFi password in February! How do I get my email back on iPhone & deal with this hack? I’ve read if I’m targeted I’m S.O.L. ? Will a VPN on router help? Must I buy all new devices to lose targeted hacks? Oh, I did a reset (all of my recovery dates were missing) yet TPM refuses to clear. I did change computer name. I am moving in 2 weeks & need email!!

Dovecot mail_crypt corrupted index cache

I have a an email server which uses dovecot as the imap server, i wanted to implement local mail encryption so i decided to use the mail_crypt dovecot plugin using the below documentation.


I went for the global method using one ecc key pair for the encryption, i created the key pair and put the necessary options in 90-plugins.conf:

plugin {

mail_crypt_curve = prime256v1

mail_crypt_global_private_key = <ecprivkey.pem

mail_crypt_global_public_key = <ecpubkey.pem

mail_crypt_save_version = 2


And added the mail_crypt plugin to the plugin list in 20-lmtp.conf.

I sent a test email and the email was encrypted successfully.

However when i go to open the email in my email client (neomutt in this case) i am unable to open the email and the folder it is in, which was INBOX. Looking at dovecot.log the reason is due to index cache corruption, it is complaining that the size is too small.

Aug 18 15:44:15 imap(user)<33736><Hj+y6yetwKhRXM6s>: Error: Mailbox INBOX: UID=xxxx: read(/path/to/Maildir/cur/) failed: Cached message size smaller than expected (3981 < 4220, box=INBOX, UID=xxxx) (read reason=mail stream)

Aug 18 15:44:15 imap(user)<33736><Hj+y6yetwKhRXM6s>: Error: Corrupted record in index cache file /path/to/Maildir/dovecot.index.cache: UID xxxx: Broken physical size in mailbox INBOX: read(/path/to/Maildir/cur/) failed: Cached message size smaller than expected (3981 < 4220, box=INBOX UID=xxxx)

Aug 18 15:44:15 imap(user)<33736><Hj+y6yetwKhRXM6s>: Error: Mailbox INBOX: UID=xxxx: read(/path/to/Maildir/cur/) failed: Cached message size smaller than expected (3981 < 4220, box=INBOX, UID=xxxx)

Aug 18 15:44:15 imap(user)<33736><Hj+y6yetwKhRXM6s>: Info: FETCH failed: Internal error occurred. Refer to server log for more information. [2020-08-18 15:44:15] in=551 out=2369 deleted=0 expunged=0 trashed=0 hdr_count=1 hdr_bytes=68 body_count=0 body_bytes=0

I have tried moving the cache files and restarting the dovecot service which then creates new cache files but the same error occurs. Disabling the plugin, removing the encrypted email and restarting dovecot after removing the newly generated cache files has enabled me access to INBOX once again.

From my understanding dovecot should do the cache message size config automatically.

Is this issue occurring because i have had encrypted email and old unencrypted emails in inbox simultaneously and this was corrupting the cache? Do i need to remove all old unencrypted emails first before implementing the mail_crypt plugin?

Register an @yahoo.de email?

Years ago I created an account and put my reset email as example@yahoo.de by mistake, it should have been @yahoo.com.

Recently, I tried to access my old account but could not remember the password. When I tried to reset my email it wanted example@yahoo.de, so I went onto the website but found out that Yahoo now only has .com domains, not country specific ones.

Are there perhaps any tricks or solutions to this?

Can Mutt be used to access Inbox messages in a bash script?

I’ve got scripts that collect data on errors and sends them into a ticketing system. If any developments occur regarding an existing ticket, I want to be able to access the email inbox to get the ticket number so that I can include this in the reply. This will result in the ticketing system including the new information in the old ticket instead of creating a new ticket every time. Is this possible?

I’ve been looking online for how I might be able to do this but I haven’t yet found anything that looks like bash commands to access the inbox programmatically and save a message’s information to a variable.

How to determine whether the Jenkins build was started by a user or the scheduler?

I have a Jenkins job which does some unit-testing for some code. It can be started in two possible ways:

  1. By the scheduler – it polls the Perforce server, and starts the job when it detects a code change
  2. By a user, on demand – it downloads a shelved/stashed code change, and checks whether it breaks the tests

The second way is called “Build Review”:

Build Review

If the job discovers problems, I want to send emails conditionally, to avoid spam:

  1. If invoked by the scheduler, send mails to everyone who did check-ins since last successful build (called “developers” in Jenkins jargon)
  2. If invoked by a specific user, send a mail only to that user

I am using the Any Build Step plugin to add two conditional instances of Editable email Notification into my job settings. But what are the conditions? How can I tell it to send mail only if invoked in a specific way, (1) or (2) above?

Someone is trying to reset my email password

I don’t know if this is the right place to ask, but I think I got a problem.
Recently I have started to receive emails to reset my password for my main email on my other two emails I have set up for backup. Thing is, I never asked for it to be reset, and oddly enough, its been hapening for over a week now, multiple times a day. I’m inclined to belive that this is an automated attack or something, but I dont understand the point of it if the attacker dosent have access to the backup emails.

All my accounts have 2FA enabled, so I think I’m safe, but I want to be sure. Is there something I should do to be safer?

When does replying to a craigslist ad anonymize e-mail address?

I replied to an ad on craigslist. I used my Gmail account to send it to the anonymized craigslist e-mail. The receiver must have seen my real email address because he knew my name even though I didn’t include it in the message. I thought when sending an e-mail to an anonymized cragislist e-mail address,the sender’s e-mail gets anonymized too?

Forwarding email for an entire domain

Forwarding email for an entire domain

I recently acquired the .com of my company name; previously been using .net domain.

I don’t want to switch emails from .net, is it possible to setup anything at my .com to forward to my .net transparently?

I.E. somebody emails sales@mycompany.com and it forwards the message to sales@mycompany.net keeping the original sender name and address.
