Guys: I'm running into a brick wall with mu4e, wondering if you can help?
The problem comes from mbsync. I installed it, and used a config file from systemcrafters video series.
#for the next, I used both STARTTLS and IMAPS
Patterns * ![Gmail]* "[Gmail]/Sent Mail" "[Gmail]/Starred" "[Gmail]/All Mail" "[Gmail]/Trash"
When I run mbsync (mbsync -a) I get these errors:
kantuck@zeus:/$ mbsync -a
/home/kantuck/.mbsyncrc:6: keyword 'SSLType' is not recognized in IMAPAccount sections
/home/kantuck/.mbsyncrc:7: keyword 'CertificateFile' is not recognized in IMAPAccount sections
Notice: Master/Slave are deprecated; use Far/Near instead.
I went ahead and checked Thunderbird (which works with gmail just fine) and the config for one of my gmail accounts says:
server type: IMAP Mail server
server name: imap.gmail.com port 993
user name: [email protected]
connection security; ssl/tls
authentication method OAuth2
The video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZRyEhi4y44 is dated: Jan 1 2021, so has Google changed gmail yet again? That config from t-bird hasn't changed in several years.
As a side note: I also tried the config from this tutoral: https://www.reddit.com/r/emacs/comments/bfsck6/mu4e_for_dummies/
Got the exact same errors.
My info is:
