IMAP002 BAD Protocol Error: "Invalid string supplied for password"

Hi All

I am getting this when I use a password with special character in it, well starting with it.

Any Idea ?

I haven't been able to figure out a way to resolve this, without changing the password. If you have any suggestions i will be happy to try them.

Sorry but I haven't got idea how to scape this character, do you know the exchange escape character ? I have try quotations mark (single and double)

I belive you can escape \ with another \
for example if the password is "ole\ole" then the string should be parsed to "ole\\ole"

I have already try that and does not work when the \ is the first character.
