Author/Date PopOverHttp problem
28/01/2006 2:25pm
I really like the idea of PopOverHttp, so I wanted to try it out. Modifying the php-script was not a big deal, but for me (having to work on guest computers and generally not an expert on unix-filesystems) it was more difficult to set-up a PW-protected directory. But finally, I succeeded with that one as well :-)

Now if I call the script from the browser, I get a listing with the msg ID's on the mailserver, so the URL seems to be alright. However. trying to download the mails with InScribe fails, giving SocketError(0) Socket disconnected.

I have crosschecked several times that I have entered username and PW correctly in InScribe.

Where could be my mistake?

Hi Chris,

I'm getting the same problem to. My guess is that php script available for download is not correct or outdated. For example, I don't understand how this script can work if it does not parse any parameters passed to it via GET or POST.

I tried to find some documentation for scribe PopOverHttp protocol, but can't find it on this website...

The php script was written in the php4 days where variables in the URL were made global. There days you need to use $_GET or something. So I'll update the script and post a new version, then let you know on this thread.
