[Alpha] Pop Goes the GMail


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.

I tested it on a WinXP SP1 platform.

Outlook Express 6 works fine with PgtG

Outlook 2003 cannot seem to connect to PgtG

Thank you for this hard work!

Worked out why it didn't like outlook, so this feature will be fixed for 0.6

I can't get this work in Outlook 2003, is there a trick to this or it just a bug awaiting a new release?

On edit: Nevermind just read back and saw that it was due to be fixed in 0.6 release, sorry.

Trying this with Thunderbird on XP SP1. Set it up as told, but TBird just says 'Connected to localhost...' when checking for emails, and never gets any further. Running the app on its own is fine, it connects and tells me I have email. But no go through Thunderbird.

Same with OE, pretty much: it gets to 'receiving list of messages from server' but then hangs and hangs and hangs.

No virus checker; no pc-based firewall, but I'm behind a firewall at work. Any ideas? Am using .NET 1.1 - should that be updated?

Great app, btw.

ok, 0.6 is out, main new features are outgoing attachments and support for outlook, and mozilla. havent tested thunderbird, but should work...

as for your error smokie, reinstall the .net runtimes, cos im pretty sure that error is caused by not having them!

Nice updates but I have a problem with 0.6 release. I keep getting a popup dialog with no message (see attached screenshot). It seems to popup non stop. Any idea what might be causing the problem.

Same URL? Your page still shows it as 0.5. I'll download and install anyway and let you know...

Okay - that worked perfectly. Great stuff. Thunderbird handles it all fine.

By the way, how does it handle leaving or taking messages off the server if that's selected in the email client? Does it delete them from gmail completely, send them to the trash, or not do anything...?

Great app.

Well got the beta 2 service pack installed for .NET and still doesn't work, I am beginning to believe it isn't something wrong with the .NET install.

I believe it is a bug in the app, someone needs to send the debug info so we can figure out what is causing it.

It is also adding slashes when it imports the emails:

This is an e-mail message sent automatically by Microsoft Office

Outlook\'s Account Manager while testing the settings for your POP3

account.

Great program, It looks really usefull (i dont have gmail) but just a few things.

1. A better name would be good, "Pop goes the gmail" just doesnt sound right, I like that GMailer name that was suggested earlier

2. Make it support xp visual styles, not really important but it would make it look better

3. In the about box where it tells you the settings to use in the e-mail client, you could make it grab the info from the main window and display it in the appropriate places.

I really have no problem with the name "POP Goes The GMail", it's just that in the ballons it says PGtGM, i think it would look cleaner to say GMailer, also the file name, but all that doesnt really matter. Again, great app.

Edit: Was the nursery rythme puff the magic dragon, it's the only thing i can think of that comes close

Yeh, there have been a few calls to change the name,

I do like the pun though, its taken from a nursery rhyme 'Pop Goes the Weasel'. You can play the music on the about screen!

3 good points however. XP theme support is no doubt on its way, and i like the idea of displaying the correct details in the about box.
