I'm trying to enable
gnus to work with Outlook server (https://outlook.office.com/owa). At first I tried to re-use my old configuration for
gmail (which worked fine for several years), but it didn't work in Outlook case.
Then I googled a lot, and it seems that the only way to make it work is to have
davmail mail gateway on your workstation, and configure
gnus to connect to
Before I start digging in
davmail more deeply, I'd like to clarify:
- Is davmail really necessary?
- I only need a single mail client to connect via DavMail to Outlook. Am I right that I only need workstation configuration?
- If it is only workstation configuration, does it mean DavMail will only run as a GUI application? Can I not run it via service as a background process?
Below is my
gnus configuration from
gmail account which I tried to adopt for
;; (setq user-full-name "My Name") (setq user-mail-address "my.email@outlook") (setq smtpmail-auth-credentials "~/.authinfo") (setq gnus-select-method '(nnimap "my_mail" (nnimap-address "outlook.office365.com") (nnimap-server-port 993) (nnimap-stream ssl) (nnimap-search-engine imap) (nnimap-authinfo-file "~/.authinfo"))) (setq smtpmail-stream-type 'ssl smtpmail-smtp-server "smtp.office365.com" smtpmail-smtp-service 587)
My ~/.authinfo :
machine outlook.office365.com login my.email@outlook password my_password port 993
Now when I start
gnus it prints this in minibuffer:
Opening connection to outlook.office365.com via tls... nnimap (my_mail) open error: ‘NO LOGIN failed.’. Continue? (y or n)
