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.

Note: If your version of Macro Scheduler is older than 14.2 you will need to install the OpenSSL library files. Since version 14.2 they are included with Macro Scheduler.

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\
