Support » Plugins » Google Mail Hosting for Domain

  • Does anyone know of a plugin to interface with Gmail, or specifically Gmail for you Domain?

    What I envision is a way to bridge or embed the Gmail page inside a WordPress Page. To one up that, some way to enter your username/password would and have it check email with a (xx) showing how manu new emails, and then be able to click that link to go right to the Inbox.

    I know a while back someone tried to set up something like this for normal Gmail, but I lost track of the project long ago. The hosted version is nearly the same thing, just minor changes.

    Any ideas, it would be quite slick I think. My PHP writing skill is zero to none, or I might look at it. I can modify code and/or strip the good bits, but from scratch I would not know where to start.

    Putting a simple login form for GMailDomain onto your page is actually pretty trivial. Just add this form somewhere:
    <form action="" method="post" name="login">
    <input type="hidden" name="at" value="null">
    <input type="hidden" name="continue" value="">
    <input type="hidden" name="service" value="mail">
    Username: <input type="text" name="userName" size="18">
    Password: <input type="password" name="password" size="18">
    Remember me: <input type="checkbox" name="persistent" value="true" id="rem">

    You can prettify that all you like, of course. Don’t forget to replace EXAMPLE.COM with your own domain name.

    Making something to check their mail and get a count back would be much more difficult.

    That is a trivial idea. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work – or at least it doesn’t work any more. Google is checking the referrer for “security reasons”. Kind of a funny statement coming from the provider of an email that sets a login cookie for two weeks.

    Any fresh idea how to use login form on my subpage? I log it to gmail with, not basic gmail login screen, since I use
