    If this error is not coming from your ISP, it might be coming from the local PC you are using to connect. Is there any firewall or antivirus software blocking the connection? Try using another computer to connect and see what result you will get.

    Hi,

    I was also having the problem that I could send but not receive e-mails to an IMAP configured G-mail account.


    Specifically, the following solved my problem:
    Reset Mail's preferences
    The IMAP prefix settings are stored in the account settings in the preferences files for Mail, and if there is a corruption in the preference files that is preventing settings changes from working correctly, then this could be why the problems reoccur for some users. The Mail preferences file is called "com.apple.Mail.plist" and is located in the /username/Library/Preferences/ folder. Removing this file will require users to re-enter account information, but Mailbox setup and downloaded messages will all remain intact.

    The only negative thing is it seems to have removed all the e-mails related to one of my two accounts. So, if you can back up your e-mail before doing this.
    I suspect there is an easy fix to the lost e-mail - but I haven't figured that out yet (syncing did not seem to help)

    yes,your connection blocking due to firewall,which is passive attack on software.

    ## For solve this issue you need to reset Mail preferences,

    ## For that you need to go IMAP prefix settings,

    ## These are stored in the account settings,

    ## In the preferences files for Mail,

    ## And if there is a corruption in the preference files,

    ## And then this could be why the problems reoccur for some users.

    ## The Mail preferences file is called "com.apple.Mail.plist"

    ## And is located in the /username/Library/Preferences/ folder.

    ## Removing this file will require users to re-enter account information,

    ## But Mailbox setup and downloaded messages will all remain intact.

    ## That's it.
