Gmail Imap Doesn't Work Right - Or Am I Crazy?

Postby Pirate727 » Fri Nov 20, 2009 4:59 pm

I'm an old Poco user who got nostalgic and decided to come back. But there's just one issue. I need to access Gmail via IMAP.

As an expert user, I tried everything tonight. Every port number, every configuration, read a LOT of forum posts and followed every instruction.

What I'm stuck with is a quirky, slow, hanging execution every time. Funny note: While I was writing this suddenly it stopped hanging and pulled everything down, but then checked and got hung up again. Just quirky.

Has anyone discovered the secret to making this work yet? I'd really like to use Poco, but not if I can't get this working seamlessly.

Anybody? I never had this problem with Thunderbird. But I don't like Thunderbird. :-(

Update:
Looks like I'm not the only one that's having this problem.

I use Gmail with PocoMail just fine. This is my setup

One thing to remember, Gmail implements it's own standards on how IMAP works. How do actions sync in IMAP? - Gmail Help. All lot of answers regarding Gmail and IMAP can be found on this page. IMAP - Gmail Help

I am not saying it's not PocoMail, there are IMAP problems with PocoMail, but if you really want IMAP, Gmail is not the place to get it. Gmail marches to it's own drummer.
