Error conntacting with SSL

Post by PopTrayer » Thu Sep 08, 2022 6:45 pm

For several days I can't receive GMail (on all 4 accounts I have) on my Windows 10 computer via the PopTray application

Other mail clients are working fine. (Computer, Android Phone)

Until now, the PopTray Application was helped by generating passwords using the "Logging in google" section

Unfortunately, it doesn't work right now.

The prompt I am getting is: Error connecting with SSL

Poptray is no longer supported... switch to PoptrayU and use the beta version v5.3.0 ... you still will need an application specific password

Can I install new version on older version?

Is this version will fix the problems with errors with SSL?

I wouldn't recommend installing over the older version, it isn't mentioned as an option, so I wouldn't assume it would work without possible other issues showing up. PoptrayU fixed many bugs that were left in Poptray itself, I'd be afraid of having an old file left that could affect those changes in unknown ways.

You setup your Gmail accounts the same way you did the previous time with the only difference being that you have to use the application specific password as I mentioned before... see https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/185833?hl=en

You have ALWAY needed to create a google account in your browser and not in an email checker like PoptrayU or an email client such as Outlook or Thunderbird. You can't get past that. So you create an account online with a browser, then you create the app password again with a browser for that account and use that password in setting up the third person program like PopTrayU ( or email programs ) like before. Just as before this latest change, you do need to enable POP3/IMAP access in the settings for your account ( in a browser ). This has always been required, so I didn't repeat that previously assuming you had set up your accounts already in a browser. The only thing that differs from before this last change is the requirement to create an app specific password, everything else is the same.

When I resetup mine... I selected to use IMAP settings, I selected the option in the IMAP Account settings to use the Google IMAP Extensions I didn't try using their POP3 settings since that wasn't the best option for me because I also access my Gmail accounts from my Android phone and tablet.

Everything what you wrote is right! I agree with you in 100%! The problem is that I cannot setting up account in PopTrayU and maybe this is the same problem why teh gmail accounts dont work in old PopTray.

I have no idea of what you are doing wrong or what step you are missing... but it is something. I had no problems setting up any account in PoptrayU.

Hmm... doesn't look like any screenshot I've seen.... so I'll do my own.

The following still requires that you create an app password as already mention AND to have your Gmail settings enabling POP3/IMAP.

If you are pointing at the SSL options... that would only happen if you didn't select to download and install the SSL add-on during the installation...

Poptray isn't supported any more as I've mentioned several times to you now, using the proper name is important so others understand you.

You asked why the SSL wasn't enabled... as I mentioned that is because it isn't installed as required. You are blaming the program when it's the method you are trying to use is at fault.

I will also point out what should be obvious if you have installed PoptrayU and read the installation... there is no portable option available for it. There are only 3 options currently and portable is not one.

Is there any chance to I see numbers of emails next to bookmark name? I attached screenshot 1 (From PopTrayU) & 2 (From old PopTray)

Is there any chance to still see notification that even after reading email I have anything on some email box? (Screenshot 3 from old PopTray)
