Issue with IMAP mail messages - "connection forcibly closed by remote host"


#1

Hi - We are getting the below error message when using the activity ‘Get IMAP Mail Messages’ to retrieve the top 20 emails from an exchange mailbox.

Details: Unable to read data from the transport connection: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

Has anyone seen something similar before?

Thanks!
