GMail help also. I am also having trouble with gmail access. I have followed the instructions:
(a) installed 1.88 v5 of i.scribe
(b) unpacked SSL plugin into i.scribe directory
(c) changed the account setup to
send
smtp.gmail.com:587

receive
pop.gmail.com:995

(d) checked both send and receive for SSL

I can successfully send messages, but I cannot receive messages. I get the following message in the log file

Connected to pop.gmail.com:995 using SSL
+OK gpop ready
USER hillgm
+OK send PASS
PASS ******
-ERR [SYS/PERM] Your account is not enabled for POP access
SSL connection close

Can anyone identify what I am doing wrong please.

Geoff: You need to switch POP access on in the Gmail interface. Go into Settings->Forwarding And POP->POP Download

Then it should work.

Can someone please help me with which version of the openssl dlls I should be using?

I found two versions. The one version of the dlls gives met an error when I open iscribe - "The ordinal 968 could not be located in the dynamic link library LIBEAY32.dll" - and then it says the ssl dlls are not installed.

The other dlls seems to be working fine, but when I try to connect it gives the following error in the log "Error: Scribe_SSL.cpp:254 - SSL_CTX_new failed"

Can someone help please?

I used Win32OpenSSL-v0.9.7e.exe for my testing.

Are you trying to make a portable OpenSSL install?

Yes, I am just trying to run iScribe together with the SSL dlls from a USB key.

You'll need to wait for the next release for that to work. The current release doesn't know where to find them. I did warn readers in the blog entry about that. Just to be completely clear, you need v1.88-test6 AND the current SSL plugin at the time of release.

Thanks, I'll keep an eye open for the next release. Any plans to integrate some of the specific features of gmail like labels?
