[Plugin: Post By Email] Error connecting to POP3 server. (1 post)

    I was successfully using the post by email feature but when it was removed in 3.7 it broke a key feature of our fire department web site.

    I installed the Post By Email plugin (ver. 1.0.4b) and it copied the configuration settings I had before that worked.

    However, I'm getting "An error occurred: Error connecting to POP3 server." when I run Check Now.

    I installed Postie and I am able to connect and I can connect using the Gmail web site using the same username and password. I also tried reentering the login info but it still didn't work.

    I am on Hostgator, with version 5.2.17 of PHP

    Setting for Gmail

    ssl://pop.gmail.com
    pop3
    port 995
    always use secure connection is checked
