Mailbox polling - Discourse can log in, emails not picked up


(James Milligan) #1

Strange one, and I’m sure I’ve had this before but it seemed to fix itself before I had time to look into it.

So I’ve got Discourse up and running in Docker, and I’ve got a mail server running on the host which is working correctly. Emails come in (and go out from Discourse direct to Mandrill) and land in the right inbox. Discourse logs in just fine (logs prove this).

But the emails aren’t picked up and processed by Discourse. This is the same for both replies and new posts.

Nothing in Discourse /logs, and like I said it authenticates absolutely fine. Any clues on where to look for further information like where it’s failing?

Just bumping this a bit as I’m still experiencing this issue. I’m certain there’s something I’m blatantly missing but can’t for the life of me figure out what!
