|Has anyone successfully been able to run their POP3 enabled Gmail through i.Scribe yet?
If so, what server settings have you used to get it to work. I'm stumped?????
|Sorry... I only just found 'Geodog's' thread... but even after installing the OpenSSL app, when I try to add the SSL plugin I get this error message:
ScribePlugin load log:
Operating system couldn't load the library file (.DLL/.SO)
Any clues with what's going on here?
|Firstly you should unpack the SSL plugin into the same folder as Scribe. And then from the File -> Plugins window in Scribe add 'Scribe_SSL.dll'.
Which OS version are you using?
Which version of Scribe? (You should be using v1.88 test3 or test4 with the latest download of the SSL plugin.
|Actually if your downloading the plugin again make sure you get v1.88-test4 as well. I updated both over the weekend so I'm not sure what you already have.
Secondly I've tested gmail access myself and it works fine. So if we can get past the SSL plugin problems then it should be good to go.
|OK... I'm gonna get this if it kills me!
SSL Plugin is now installed OK.
And here's my settings as I have them:
Authentication Type: All
Mail Box Type: POP3
Server Port: pop.gmail.com:995
Both Send and Receive SSL boxes checked (on).
With those settings I do a check mail and get the following log error message:
Connected to 'pop.gmail.com:995' using SSL
Error 1: error:00000001:lib(0):func(0):reason(1)
SSL Connection Closed
|I think something is blocking the socket connection to pop.gmail.com. I can access my account using that address fine. Although I don't put the '@gmail.com' on the username.
Can you ping pop.gmail.com?
Connected to 'pop.gmail.com:995' using SSL +OK Gpop ready. USER ******* +OK send PASS PASS ******* +OK Welcome. STAT +OK 0 0 QUIT SSL connection closed.
|can you explain how one 'pings'? LOL
Sorry mate... I'm not that 'techie'...
|Could it be the firewall here at work?|
|Firewall: definiately. A firewall will block all sorts of outgoing traffic as well as incomming traffic.
To ping something, open up a command prompt (start->run: 'cmd' on 2k or XP). Then:
And hit enter. If you get 100% packet loss in the summary at the bottom it's not a good sign.
|If your work allows SSH connections out of the firewall you can use that to bounce the connection off an intermediate server. Although it's tricky to setup it's more secure than any POP or SMTP connection normally is. You'd have to find out from the sysadmin whether they let you do that.|
|my PC is so locked down here I can't even get to a DOS prompt. I'll just try it when I get home and see what happens... thanks anyway...|
|OK... so it's definitely a firewall issue in terms of at work. I am now able to receive emails at home, but sending them now gives me the following error:
We're rejected by the server:
No 'from' address in email.
Server error message.
No 'from' address in email.
You getting sick of me yet? LOL
|I've verified that it works with the following settings:
Auth Type: 'All'
Preferred chars: (whatever)
And obviously, turn on SSL for sending in the connection tab.
|Yeah I'm all good now...
The problem ended up being that I hadn't filled out the fields under: File > Options > Identity
Fantastic program mate! Well done!
|GMail help also. I am also having trouble with gmail access. I have followed the instructions:
(a) installed 1.88 v5 of i.scribe
(b) unpacked SSL plugin into i.scribe directory
(c) changed the account setup to
(d) checked both send and receive for SSL
I can successfully send messages, but I cannot receive messages. I get the following message in the log file
Connected to pop.gmail.com:995 using SSL
+OK gpop ready
+OK send PASS
-ERR [SYS/PERM] Your account is not enabled for POP access
SSL connection close
Can anyone identify what I am doing wrong please.
|Geoff: You need to switch POP access on in the Gmail interface. Go into Settings->Forwarding And POP->POP Download
Then it should work.
