I've deployed many Google Apps accounts and have used imapsync a number of times to migrate accounts to Google Apps.
This time however, no matter what I try imapsync refuses to work claiming my credentials are incorrect - I've checked them time and time again and they are 100% correct.
On Ubuntu 12, built from source, my command is:
Full output from the command:

I have tried
-authmech2 LOGIN as well which returns:
Host2: imap.gmail.com says it has NO CAPABILITY for AUTHENTICATE LOGIN Failure: error login on [imap.gmail.com] with user [[email protected]] auth [LOGIN]: 2 NO [AUTHENTICATIONFAILED] Invalid credentials (Failure)
If anyone can shed some light on this I would greatly appreciate it.
