My Google Apps account was not working with the Postie plugin.
I got this error message:
Unable to connect. The server said – POP3 connect: Error
Try putting in your full email address as a userid and try again.
My settings were:
Mail Protocol: POP3
(The only other option IMAP/IMAP-SSL/POP3-SSL had a message saying it was not available.)
Postie Time Correction: –6 hours
Mail Server: pop.gmail.com
Mail Userid: <email address>
Mail password: <password>
I did a little Google digging and found the solution in a comment at the very bottom of this page at Economy Sized Geek.
All I had to do was add “ssl://” to the beginning of my mail server to become “ssl://pop.gmail.com”
After making the change, I was able to connect to the mail server. Thank you, lewen7er9.
