gmail and gkrellm


I have been trying to configure the mailcheck in gkrellm to check and notify for new mail on my gmail account. I have activated pop of course...

These are the pop info taken from gmail:
Server for incoming mail (IMAP) - needs SSL:
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 993
Server outgoing mail (SMTP) - needs TLS: (use verification)
Use verifiering: Yes
Use STARTTLS: Yes(some clients call this SSL)
Port: 465 or 587
Thankful for help

I don't think gmail works with email clients. I'm pretty sure you need to use a web browser. In the case I am wrong, according to what you posted, gmail doesn't use pop, but imap. If you are paying for gmail, it might allow remote retrieval of mail.
