Unable to setup pop3 Gmail account

Postby Gulgul » Tue Jul 23, 2013 4:30 pm

Your IncrediMail Version: 2.5
Your Internet Browser Type: Google Chrome
Your Operation System: Windows 7

What have you done before the problem occurred?
Upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7 (fresh installation) and re-installed Incredimail.

If you receive any error message, please quote it precisely:


Please provide a full description of the problem:
After upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7 (fresh installation), I re-installed Incredimail. I tried to configure a pop3 email account for my Gmail accounts, but Incredimail would net let me choose whether in configure pop3 or IMAP. It chose IMAP for me, although I chose the option Let me configure settings myself. When configuring the account I tried both option: choose Gmail on the first screen and choose Other. But the results were the same. I also tried inserting the server details manually, but then I could not receive or send emails. Incredimail simply would not let me insert the details for a pop3 account with Gmail.
I did manage thought to set up pop3 account for another provider, which is not on the list of the Email providers that Incredimail lists.

To set your account as a POP3 account, you can select the Other option when configuring your email account in IncrediMail, instead of @gmail.com enter a different address (for example @test.com) and then configure your server names manually, after doing that you can click the Tools menu, select Email Accounts and click Properties to enter your correct email address.

This is a strange workaround, but it worked. Thanks <Yes>
