    This is the real exception message you have? It's best to start from the actual message. For now my guess would be a firewall issue which should show something such as "the connection failed because the server took too much time to respond or don't respond at all" (meaning basically the network request is sent correctly but you don't get any response at all from the server ie most often being blocked by a firewall).

    Seems correct accordint to https://support.google.com/mail/answer/7126229?hl=en (you enabled IMAP as shown in "Step 1" ?). Else it seems a better worded message than the one I expected when blocked by a firewall.

    I'll try myself a bit later.
