I had been looking for something like this for a while, did look at Enigmail for Thunderbird, but didn't feel like going through the set up.
Anyway, I'm having some trouble with my configuration. I can't find a real decent set-up help for Thunderbird, but excuse me if there is.
The thing is, Gmail IMAP is being really slow. When I open a 23 KB email, I click it, the pop-up shows up, I have to wait over a minute before it actually shows up. Downloading isn't the problem, that takes about 1 or 2 seconds. But then it just hangs for a full minute or more. With emails of about 10 MB it's even worse. It's the same in both my Gmail accounts.
I also have an IMAP for my college mail, which works just fine, opening a 50KB email takes about 4 seconds
I'm guessing my port settings are wrong or something like that, but I don't know what I should change them to.
GMail #1: port 993, no security
GMail #2: port 993, no security
College Mail: port 1994, no security
GMail #1 SMTP: port 587, no security
Automatically encrypt email
Decryption turned off
Certificate for Gmail #1 (as that's my SMTP)
Gmail: Port 993, SSL turned on
College Mail: Port 993, SSL turned on, use different port: 1994
I also sometimes get the pop-up that the servername hosting is wrong and that security cannot be guaranteed, something like that
I'm on Vista SP1, if that matters
Hope you guys can help me out, I really like the functionality, but I can't work with my email program like this.
