Question

idbuythatforadollar

Pop Goes the GMail

PGtGM has been discontinued. Please use http://www.gnotify.com/gpopper/ instead!

PGtGM sits between you GMail account and your email client, converting messages from the web based mailbox into POP3 messages that a program such as Outlook Express or Firebird can understand.

POP3 server now fully works. You are able to download gmail emails through any email client. SMTP server appears to work.

Please post any bugs you find in the login process to the thread, or problems displaying messages.

Me too. :(

Anyone getting this error, it is most likely a bug in my string manipulation code reading the email messages from the google arrays.

Would you be able to post a screenshot of your gmail mailbox? I'll post 0.2 which will include better error handling on those message arrays to find out what is causing the problem

While it .Net is included in the microsoft udpates site, that doesn't mean people actually download and install it. There really is no overarching need for it except that once in a while a small program will require it.

V 0.3 IS OUT

This includes unread messages being shown in bold, and a prototype SMTP and POP3 server built into the program. You can test it by connecting to localhost with your email client when the app is running.

This release also addresses my sloppy cookie handling, which was causing the index/length errors.

Thanks to blackice for posting a screenshot, this helped me figure out the problem!

Don't forget to report bugs!

I've got a bug:

When you close the app, it doesn't exit from memory. I find that it still appears in the task manager's processes.

'doesn't work' is of absolutley no use whatsoever to me...

and as for 45 meg of ram, thats just the way .NET apps work. they allocate ram in advance. if you are low on ram then it is unallocated.

only uses 18meg on my system, and i have 1gb of ram.

The POP checker works a treat here :)

About 18MB of RAM for me too (of 1/2GB).

Oddly, one instance doesn't unload from RAM upon program exit. Re-opening creates another instance (another 18MB) which does unload on exit. Same story with, say, five instances. With no instances running, there's always one left in memory (and only one, no matter how many times it was run simultaneously and/or consecutively). I expect you know about that. Is that so the POP/SMTP server is always running?

You say "V 0.3 IS OUT [...] a prototype SMTP and POP3 server built into the program. You can test it by connecting to localhost with your email client when the app is running", but I 'm getting nowhere with that. I do run a local SMTP server on localhost (not while testing this), so I get the basic idea. But I don't know what settings I'm supposed to use for PGtGM, nor what's supposed to happen. Would you post an idiots guide to that aspect, please? :cry:

POP and SMTP might actually make Gmail useful, so I look forward to that. Meanwhile, as just a basic POP checker, PGtGM is slick and fast (much faster then via a browser) and handy, thanks very much.

You might want to re-think the name ;) ... how about just "Gmailer", or "Gmail Express"?

You are one clever ****** :yes:

Good work (Y)

Edit: just out of interest what language is it written in? VB.NET? C++.NET? C#? I don't know all that much about the .NET platform but it is cool to see someone using it. I have seen very few .NET applications which is sad as it is pretty damn cool :)
