Hi,

I wanted to register on gmx.de myself, but it rejects my IP address as it is not German. So I will ask you to do some debugging for me. Please"

1. Open the terminal.
2. Kill the existing UM instance using "pkill -f unity-mail".
3. Run "unity-mail".
4. Let me know what it prints to the terminal.

Thanks.

Hi.

This is what the Terminal says:
unity-mail: Connection #1 established
LOGIN command error: BAD [b'Not enough arguments provided e8if1450887eep.60']
unity-mail: IMAP4 error occured in connection #1

Do you really want to exit (y/n)? y

Thanks,
Suwo

Oh, I have just noticed that you are trying to use the POP server, while Unity Mail only supports IMAP. Try:

Server: imap.gmx.net
Port: 993

Also, from the error message it seems that you are using some old version of Unity Mail. Currently I only provide bugfixes for 1.4 series. Anyway, let's hope that using IMAP will work.

Can you help with this problem?
