Author/Date Can't connect to gmail

Using 1.9 i.scribe Test 5 release. I use gmail for my e-mail. I have the port set to 995 for receiving mail and 465 for sending, as recommended by gmail. I have SSL checked. But I can neither send nor receive mail. Is there something else I can check? It's very curious. Thanks!

Currently Scribe can't connect to Gmail because it doesn't support the required authentication mechanism. This has been on the todo list for ages and everytime that I look at it I don't get anywhere. I'd like to fix it but I don't really have the time at the moment and it's certainly not easy to fix.

I have iScrive 1.90 Test Rel 5 working just fine with gmail for sending.

For receiving I have gmail forward all mail to my ISP email account.

But iScribe does download any mail I send from the gmail portal into my iscrice inbox. I copy that to my sent folder. Works really well !

For your information:

I had V2 Beta 26 on my machine and had no problems sending and receiving from Gmail.

When I upgraded from v2 Beta 26 to 28 however I couldn't send any emails and have since downgraded to 26 and all working fine again.
