Sending/Retrieving Emails via Gmail/SSL

Since version 13.2  Macro Scheduler‘s email functions now support SSL. Google’s Gmail and many other email services now insist on SSL secured connections.

To use SSL you first need to  install the OpenSSL library files.

Here’s an example of sending an email via Gmail:

Let>SMTP_AUTH=1
Let>SMTP_USERID=your_email@gmail.com
Let>SMTP_PASSWORD=your_password
Let>SMTP_PORT=465
Let>SMTP_SSL=1
SMTPSendMail>someone@somewhere.com,smtp.gmail.com,your_email@gmail.com,your name,test,hello world,

And to retrieve emails from Gmail via POP3 (make sure you have enabled this in your gmail settings):

Let>POP3_PORT=995
Let>POP3_SSL=1
RetrievePOP3>pop.gmail.com,your_email@gmail.com,your_password,c:\emails\in\
