I connect to Openvpn (that runs on my raspberry pi 3, installed using pivpn script) using android phone. Everything works out of the box except my email client. I use BlueMail app and I have my email account on yahoo.com. App can't connect to yahoo server and thus check my emails.

I didn't have to provide email server settings manually since BlueMail has done all configuration automatically. On Yahoo webpage I checked that IMAP protocol is setup on port 993.

sudo iptables -Son my pi returns:


sudo iptables -L on my pi returns:

Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination 

Any idea where should I look for resolution of this problem?

  • I do not understand what's your setup. You are using openvpn so you must have at least one VPN server and one VPN client. What is the RasPi, client or server? Where is the opposite? How and where is the android phone connected? Where is the gateway to the internet (yahoo.com)? – Ingo Apr 2 '19 at 8:53
