Kind users of PRTG,

how can i setup an IMAP sensor so it will read my backup emails from Windows backup send to this Gmail account. i have followed the manual underneath. But i t still gives the error code Socket Error # 10061 Connection refused. What am i doing wrong? should i setup the IMAP somewhere else? or is it just on the sensor.

Dear Dennie

Please check the gmail setting "Access for less secure apps". Please enable that option. Is the sensor now working?
