"Server do not support APOP (no timestamp)" with Gmail.

Post by ant » Sat Sep 06, 2008 6:00 pm

Hello.

I am having problems getting my PopTray v3.2 to work with my Gmail account. I get "Server do not support APOP (no timestamp)" even though I picked POP3 SSL for pop.gmail.com with its port 995.

I followed the instructions from http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answ ... swer=13287 and viewtopic.php?t=2874 ...

What's wrong? :(

Thank you in advance. :)

Verify that you didn't select POP3 SSL +APOP... then close and restart Poptray and test again.

Ah, thanks. I needed to restart PopTray.

Um, how do I tell PopTray to only check for NEW e-mails and not show me everything?

Argh, the error came back again! It looks like if I check my regular POP3 accounts (one has APOP), then the error comes up. I have to check Gmail FIRST before the regular ones. If not, then the error returns. :(

Then arrange the accounts so that the Gmail account is checked first... you can drag/drop the order of the accounts.

Ah, I didn't know that trick. However, once non-Gmail accounts are checked I will have to restart PopTray to avoid the problem. :(

viewtopic.php?t=3253&highlight=apop+timestamp

I think this old thread identified the problem and proposed a solution, but I don't know if the solution has been implemented.

"I think I found a fix for this problem. This bug manifests itself when you check both a POP3 SLL *and* a POP APOP account. The plugin source code (version 0.6) sets a flag for APOP that never gets cleared. Therefore POP SSL works on the first check -- if no APOP check happened before -- but it stops working after the first APOP check is completed. "

anyone know the status?
