« on: March 31, 2005, 10:10:10 PM »
Has anyone got this edition of AVG to check GMAIL?...If so how did you do it?

Thanks

If you're using the POP3 interface to Gmail, it uses a non-standard port and AVG free may not pick it up.  I'm not sure the paid version will either.  Most AV programs only monitor port 110.

I tried setting up an entry with port 995 but it wouldn't launch until I unchecked the SSL box in  PocoMail....Of course then GMAIL wouldn't allow it to connect & download.

Terry,

I've set up Gmail in several POP3 clients and it works but you do have to read the instructions carefully.  There is a good step by step procedure for setting it up at http://gmail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?ctx=gmail&answer=12103  Gmail uses TLS, not SSL, and if Pocomail doesn't support TLS it won't work.

BTW, we're parked at the Jordan's for the next week.

I finally got it to work by doing the following:


>>In some unique cases you have to create servers in the Personal e-mail scanner
manually. The typical case is when you are using secure communication (SSL). In
this case you have to create servers in the Personal e-mail scanner this way:

 

(AVG Control Center->E-mail scanner->Properties->Personal e-mail
scanner->Properties->Servers tab)

click on Add->Server type->POP3 - protocol for receiving e-mail
messages->Connection->choose Fixed host on the right side of the screen and type
here name of your original POP3 server (pop.gmail.com)->choose port number (995
recommended)->enable the secure communication in the Connection dialogue and
click on OK

click on Add->Server type->SMTP - protocol for sending e-mail
messages->Connection->choose Fixed host on the right side of the screen and type
here name of your original SMTP server->choose port number (995
recommended)->enable the secure communication in the Connection dialogue and
click on OK

Then you have to to set up the account in your e-mail client this way:

server for incoming e-mails: 127.0.0.1, port number as configured in the
Personal e-mail scanner server for outgoing e-mails: (127.0.0.1:995)
 disable secure communication in your client.

I didn't do the SMTP part as I use Direcway or Escapees for that part.


Welcome to Yuma...I understand Lorna & Sasha are now banned from Happy Trails for causing such disruption this morning.<BG>

I didn't look that deep into my AVG but now I found it.  AVG is pretty configurable.  Correct on the SMTP, that should not need to be changed.

I can still go to HT, I just have to go alone :)
