I got a question about the possibility to use Gmail accounts with Gobetwino. After having read a bit about how you can have POP 3and SMTP access to Gmail accounts, i can see that it will not be possible to use these accounts with Gobetwino as it is now. I use the Indy sockets open source library for the POP3 stuff, and i can see that it is possible to use SSL. But it requires some changes to the code. As for the SMTP part, i’m using standard .NET objects, i will have to check up on that before i can say anything. But anyways SSL access to mail is on the wish list for future versions.
I did a little testing and a lot of Googeling, and it appears that implementing SSL acces to Gmail accounts is not exactly easy. I have not given up, but the solutions i thought would work does not. So i’m back to square 1.
