i am having a difficult time setting up postie.
i've been through the suggestions in other posts here and made a ton of changes over the past 5 hours but still it does not work. i have tried a email of my own domain using port 110 and i have set it up with gmail using 995. i have tested it leaving the "admin" name and replacing it with the user name and replacing it with the administrator name from WP.
in "mailserver" i have used the user name and the email address as user name. I have also tried is placing the ssl:// before "pop.gmail.com" and i have made some other selections like adding the email address i would send from.
There was another thread here that said just to change the name and it worked but that's not doing it either.
I also have added several new users in order to re-test configurations with another user name and another email and password just to see if i could get the plug in to function.
finally i updated WP and thesis hoping that would make a differce.
nothing is working.
every time i click to test i get the same "time-out" error -- also in the error it always says "Error" even when i was using gmail with the 995 port.
the author page and the forum page in the wordpress plug in links are dead links.
does any one successfully use this plug in?
i could really use some assistance with the configuration
i prefer not to use a gmail acct but will use what ever will work.
thanks for any assistance.
