If there is anyone using POPfile with Gmail and OE I would be interested in knowing your settings. I have tried everything I can find searching with Google to get it to work and have had no success. I have Gmail downloading with POP3 to OE successfully but not going through POPfile.
I do run gmail POP through Thunderbird and have had no trouble setting it up with the instructions from Gmail.
There is a guy close by who does use gmail with OE and as soon as I can I’ll ask him if he had to deviate from the gmail instruction page to get it working. Soon as I hear, I’ll let you know.
One item I did notice that wasn’t covered clearly (and I think would be the same in both T-bird and OE) is the smtp server settings. It needs to be set to “TLS, if available”. You’ll still be on port 25 outbound, but it will then match the security level of the “SSL - port 995” inbound.
