Net::IMAP problem

Hello all,

My Ruby script:

require "net/imap" imap = Net::IMAP.new('my server') imap.authenticate('LOGIN','myuser','mypassword')

On the 3rd line I get a "NO response" exception raised (indicating that the IMAP server replied "NO") and the error message "Net::IMAP::NoResponseError: Unsupported authentication mechanism" If I change 'LOGIN' to 'CRAM-MD5' (the other value supported by Net::IMAP) then I get a similar (but not identical) error: "Net::IMAP::NoResponseError: Authentication failed: Unsupported authentication mechanism" If I use anything other than either 'LOGIN' or 'CRAM-MD5' I get an error from the Net::IMAP library saying "Unknown auth type" - which is reasonable.

So can you people tell me that what should i do to get rid of this..

You may want to ask this on the Ruby list...

But since you're trying LOGIN authentication, have you tried using the Net::IMAP#login method? Also, what does imap.capability say?
