FAQ

Q: Why did my mailbox got disconnected?

Let’s say you have a Gmail or Microsoft account. You may have configured it properly some time ago then somewhere along the way you changed your password. Please remember that you need to update the password in Woodpecker as well. Besides, your mailbox can get disconnected because of the issue with the authorization mechanism called Refresh Token.

We use it to securely connect your Woodpecker account with your mailbox and grant the App access to your inbox. Sometimes this is an authorization and the link can break, so you need to reconnect.


Troubleshooting

Woodpecker may connect your email address conditionally. Check what that means and how to fix this issue in our article.
In case of any other connection issues, have a look at our article I can't connect my mailbox.
