Geary problem. What email client do you use on the L5

No matter what, Geary will always complain about not having a internet connection on the L5 when trying to set it up. Anyone else having this issue?

I do not use the app Geary but you could use tcpdump in the terminal or even better in a SSH session to nail this down.

Do you mean that you do have an internet connection but Geary fails to complete setup, complaining that you don’t have an internet connection?

I don’t know whether it helps at all but you can probably create the setup (config file for each account) by hand. It’s just a text file - but you would probably need one working example to work from.

Hello, I have set up Geary and I could receive/send emails without this error message. I use a home email app, not a cloud provider.
Did you set up the accounts correctly ? I say that because I remember having issues during IMAP/SMTP setup when I filled a name in the name field and had error messages until I removed this parameter.
