Assume that you have a Microsoft Exchange Client Access server that establishes sessions to a different Mailbox server in an Exchange Server 2013 environment. After you apply cumulative update 9 or cumulative update 10 for Exchange Server 2013, Internet Mail Access Protocol (IMAP) clients are repeatedly prompted for authentication credentials. 


This is a known issue in Exchange Server 2013.


To work around this issue, follow these steps to restart your IMAP services on the Exchange Server 2013 server:

  1. Disable the EnableGSSAPIAndNTLMAuth parameter.

  2. Run the Set-IMAPSettings -EnableGSSAPIAndNTLMAuth $false cmdlet.


To fix this issue, install Cumulative Update 11 or a later cumulative update for Exchange Server 2013.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
