[RCU] Login failed - IMAP Error: Invalid host

no way monkihed at googlemail.com
Mon Jun 16 00:02:43 CEST 2008

I am trying to login with the following data:

Username: monkihed at googlemail.com
Password: xxxxxxxxxx
Server: imap.googlemail.com

And I get the error: "Login failed"

In the error log is written:
[15-Jun-2008 23:50:24 +0200] IMAP Error: Invalid host in  on line 0

I am shure that the server, pass and username are correct. I also tried a
different account that works with outlook.

Can someone help me?


This is my main.inc:
