Fastmail, couldn't find services

  • Greetings,

    Having troubles syncing with Fastmail... I created a new app password via Fastmail's settings specifically for Davdroid and tried to login using my credentials. I get:

    "Couldn't find CalDAV or CardDAV service"

    I am using a paid Fastmail account. Both DAV services should be available to me. I have used DAVdroid to sync my phone with Fastmail for over a year. I also tried to sync on an older phone and that was unsuccessful as well.

    Thank you (log link below)

    There seems to be a problem with your DNS resolver (or the SRV records were temporarily down):

    2017-05-03 22:07:37 397 [ui.setup.DavResourceFinder] Didn't find carddav service, trying at


    $ host -t SRV has SRV record 0 1 443

    It should work with these settings:

    Can you try this with your connection? Can you try another connection type (WiFi/mobile)?

  • OK, it synced via 4G. Thank you for your help 🎺

    @MrGutsy It should be possible to set up the account with the working connection (4G) and then sync over WiFi, too.


Looks like your connection to Bitfire App Forums was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
