If any of you have GMail accounts, you can now use SnapperMail to retrieve your email using Gmail's new POP3 features!!
I tried out about 6 different email apps for the PalmOS, and the ONLY one I could get to consistently send and receive email from my Gmail account is Snapper Mail. Here's how to get it working:
Log into your Gmail account, go into Settings, select the "Forwarding and Pop" tab, and enable the type of POP3 you want to do.
Next, launch SnapperMail and create a new POP3 account. In the "Server" tab, fill in the POP3 server with "pop.gmail.com", enter your full gmail email address as the username, and enter your password in the password field. In the "Outgoing SMTP Server" field, enter "smtp.gmail.com", enter your full Gmail Email address, and enter your password.
Finally, AND THIS IS IMPORTANT, tap "More" and make the following settings:
For POP3 settings:
Set the "Use SSL" dropdown to "Always Secure (wrapped port)", set the port to "995" and leave the other checkboxes unchecked.
For SMTP settings:
Set the "Use SSL" dropdown to "Always Secure (STARTTLS)", set the port to either port "465" or "587" and leave the other checkboxes unchecked.
Set up the rules as you wish, and when you tap "Send/Receive" you should be able to send and receive mail!
Works like a charm on my Tungsten C!
