KY Dave wrote:To check SSL accounts using POP3 you need to install the SSL Plugin.

The SSL Plugin is available at Source Forge, use the link below for a direct download after choosing your d/l site...

Download PopTrayPlugins_beta6.exe

Download the plugin using the above links and follow these directions...

Double CLick the PopTrayPlugins_beta6.exe file.
Install to PopTray Directory. It should automatically create Plugins directory. If not point the installer to the Plugins directory you have created.

Start PopTray and on the OPTIONS TAB, PLUGINS, Check the box for POP3 with SSL or APOP
SAVE OPTIONS

In PopTray ACCOUNTS TAB, Sky ACCOUNT, PROTOCOL, select SSL

Use your full email address in small letters including domain

SAVE ACCOUNTS, QUIT PopTray and RESTART for changes to take effect.

Check your account.
