When a different account is used for authenticating against the POP3 email server (incoming) than what is used to authenticate against the SMTP email server (outgoing), the connection to the inbound email server fails to connect and the following error is seen in the RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle User Interface:
The following error is seen in the aveksaServer.log:
javax.mail.MessagingException: Could not connect to message store for pop3://<hostname of pop3 email server>:110;
nested exception is:
javax.mail.AuthenticationFailedException: EOF on socket
POP3 is the inbound email server. Current functionality of RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle allows authentication of the outbound email server (SMTP), but there is no configuration option to provide authentication credentials to the POP3 email server.
This enhancement has been added to the product starting in RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle 7.1.1. Because this is considered an enhancement, this functionality will not be back-ported to earlier versions. Please upgrade to 7.1.1 to get this functionality.
Use the same account to authenticate against both the SMTP (outbound) email server and the POP3 (inbound) email server.
