    I have installed and activated the Postie plugin.

    I am using the following recommended settings:
    protocol - pop3-ssl
    server - pop.gmail.com
    port - 995
    userid - karl.dallas
    password - my password
    I am getting the following errors:
    Warning: imap_open() [function.imap-open]: Couldn't open stream {pop.gmail.com:995/service=pop3/ssl/notls/novalidate-cert} in /home/housto44/public_html/churchlib/wp-content/plugins/postie/postieIMAP.php on line 78
    Unable to connect. The server said - Can't connect to gmail-pop.l.google.com,995: Connection timed out
    Try putting in your full email address as a userid and try again.

    I put in full gmail address (karl.dallas@gmail.com) and received the following error:

    Checking for mail manually
    This is the postie plugin

    MAKE SURE POP IS TURNED ON IN SETTING AT Gmail

    Connecting to pop.gmail.com:995 (pop3-ssl)

    Warning: imap_open() [function.imap-open]: Couldn't open stream {pop.gmail.com:995/service=pop3/ssl/notls/novalidate-cert} in /home/housto44/public_html/churchlib/wp-content/plugins/postie/postieIMAP.php on line 78

    Mail Connection Time Out

    Common Reasons:

    Server Down

    Network Issue

    Port/Protocol MisMatch

    The Server said:Can't connect to gmail-pop.l.google.com,995: Connection timed out

    Gmail server is working fine. I am accessing gmail all the time.

    I need advice on where I need to change the postie settings, pleased.

    I have tried changing POP3-SSL to POP3 and the port accordingly, but with the same (non) result.
    Do no Postie users know (or care) how I can solve this?
    And tell me, why is it so easy to post by email to a WordPress.com blog and virtually impossible with WordPress.org?

    I tried to make it work with gmail and it wouldn't. I had to use website email account and then it worked like a charm.

    From what I understand. Postie no longer works with WordPress, and the developer is not answering email concerning the plugin.
