postie wordpress errors


POP3: 110
POP3-SSL: 995
IMAP: 143
IMAP-SSL: 993

This plugin does not work for me

Can I use postie to check a gmail account?

Yes. You can use either pop3-ssl or imap-ssl with a gmail account. Before

attempting to use with postie, make sure that you enable pop or imap in your

gmail preferences.

Pop3 settings:
protocol - pop3-ssl
server - pop.gmail.com
port - 995
userid - your username (e.g. if your e-mail address is foo@gmail.com, this

would be just foo)
password - your password
IMAP settings:
protocol - imap-ssl
server - imap.gmail.com
port - 993
userid - your username (e.g. if your e-mail address is foo@gmail.com, this

would be just foo)
password - your passwordS

Oh one more quick note, when I got a "connection timeout" error, it turned

out I had the wrong numbers in there. Put it back to [110] and it worked!

Get started with IMAP and POP3


What is POP and IMAP?

POP and IMAP is what allows you to download messages from Gmail's servers onto your computer so you can access your mail with a program like Microsoft Outlook or Thunderbird, even when you aren't connected to the Internet.
How much does POP and IMAP cost?

POP and IMAP access are free for all Gmail users.
What's the difference between POP and IMAP?

If you're trying to decide between using POP and IMAP, we encourage you to use IMAP.
Unlike POP, IMAP offers two-way communication between your web Gmail and your email client. This means when you log in to Gmail using a web browser, actions you perform on email clients and mobile devices (ex: putting mail in a 'work' folder) will instantly and automatically appear in Gmail (ex: it will already have a 'work' label on that email the next time you sign in).

IMAP also provides a better method to access your mail from multiple devices. If you check your email at work, on your mobile phone, and again at home, IMAP ensures that new mail is accessible from any device at any given time.

Finally, IMAP offers a more stable experience overall. Whereas POP is prone to losing messages or downloading the same messages multiple times, IMAP avoids this through two-way syncing capabilities between your mail clients and your web Gmail.




You can retrieve your Gmail messages with a client or device that supports IMAP, like Microsoft Outlook or Apple Mail.

To enable IMAP in Gmail:

Sign in to Gmail.
Click the gear icon  in the upper right, then select Settings.
Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
Select Enable IMAP.
Configure your IMAP client and click Save Changes.



any clients will automatically configure the appropriate IMAP connection settings for your account, but confirm that the connection settings your client configures are the same as what's listed below.
If you're using a client that's not listed above, you can also use the following information to configure your IMAP. If you have problems, contact your mail client's customer support department for further instructions.
  • Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server - Requires SSL
    • imap.gmail.com
    • Port: 993
    • Requires SSL:Yes
  • Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - Requires TLS
    • smtp.gmail.com
    • Port: 465 or 587
    • Requires SSL: Yes
    • Requires authentication: Yes
    • Use same settings as incoming mail server
  • Full Name or Display Name: [your name]
  • Account Name or User Name: your full Gmail address (username@gmail.com). Google Apps users, please enter username@your_domain.com
  • Email address: your full Gmail address (username@gmail.com) Google Apps users, please enter username@your_domain.com
  • Password: your Gmail password
If your client does not support SMTP authentication, you won't be able to send mail through your client using your Gmail address.
Also, if you're having trouble sending mail but you've confirmed that encryption is active for SMTP in your mail client, try to configure your SMTP server on a different port: 465 or 587.

Hello,

We have checked and found that earlier you were talking about llers.org, In your last reply only you mentioned about your domain thellers.org which is registered with us, As you said you are facing some problem while doing some dns management setting.

If possible kindly let us know what changes you want to do so we can do it from our side if your are facing any problem.

Kindly check and revert for further assistance.

phone call and escalation to l2 tech

As per our discussion the DNS management service for the domain thellers.org is working fine (now), it seems there might be temporary issue for the same. Request you to check and revert if still facing the same issue. Also we would request you to provide us the correct domain name to avoid this kind of mis-communication.

Feel free to re-open the same ticket if there anything else we can assist you.

Most Staff working for tech support companies are idiots

After getting bureaucratic replies and incorrect replies from tech support staff working for hosting companies i can confidently says most of the low rung tech support staff are either not trained,have no tech support knowledge or lie outright to customer and close the complaint tickets without waiting for a reply for customers .

I recently got an email from the abuse team saying that a simple word press site was causing a lot of load on their servers and that is the reason they disabled the site .
The site was hosted on a shared hosting plan where the user does not have access to any server feature but the abuse team wanted me to remove apache threads.


Email ONE  from abuse team

Hello,

We had been informed by our server admin team with the logs stating that there was a tremendous load on our server due to the presence of apache threads in the hosting package associated with the domain name c.net. Thus we have suspended the free services of the hosting package.

We request you to kindly get in touch with your server admin team or web developer team to remove the apache threads from the website. Once done, you may update us and we shall unsuspend the free services.

Should you have any queries, kindly contact us.

Regards,
BR Abuse Team


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My Reply 1



Hello

What is causing the server load?

The logs show some ddos on the site.

Regards





-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Mail Two  from abuse team

Hello,

We had been informed by our server admin team with the logs stating that there was a tremendous load on our server due to the presence of apache threads in the hosting package associated with the domain name charitiesinindia.net. Thus we have suspended the free services of the hosting package.

We request you to kindly get in touch with your server admin team or web developer team to remove the apache threads from the website. Once done, you may update us and we shall unsuspend the free services.

Should you have any queries, kindly contact us.

Regards,
BR Abuse Team

----------------------------------------------------------------------------



My reply 2



Dear Sir
I would gladly remove apache thread from my shared hosting space. which has disabled all access to apache for people who buy space from this hosting .

Domain Name: c.net
IP Address: 1

Q  Does this is a shared hosting the user has NO access to any kind of apache service? .
Kindly check with your server admin if shared hosting has access to apache threads.
The shared hosting is so basic that the user has no access to php.ini even.

So Sir there is no use of my server admin team or web developer team  as they cannot do anything on a shared hosting package.





-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mail Three from abuse team

Hello,

Kindly find the answers to your questions below.

Q) Does this is a shared hosting the user has NO access to any kind of apache service?
A) Since this is a shared hosting, all the resources are shared amongst all the packages hosted on the server.

Q) Kindly check with your server admin if shared hosting has access to apache threads?
A) We cant give access to each domain for apache threads, as this can increase load on the server...and the load cannot be balanced or maintained.

However, you definitely have access to the php.ini file, and hence you can rewrite the rules in this file.

For some more information on apache threads, you may refer the below URL:- http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/worker.html.

Kindly update us, once you have finished removing the apache threads, we shall than remove the suspension from the free services associated with this domain.

Should you have any queries, kindly contact us.

Regards
Abuse Team

I have seen a LOT of referrals from trickip.net to several sites . Also i have seem DDOS and DNS problems to some sites which had trickip.net links. I am no security expert so but is just wondering if two unrealted issues a) incoming links from trickip.net and DNs issues and Ddos issues are related.
Also why is there suddenly a spike of incoming links from trickip.net?

blogger error bX-7rv9ue when trying to import Wordpress xml blog to blogger

Googles developers are as bad as microsoft . how many of them are from microsoft?

1) Google has no front end assistance .
this means end users are always left in a panic for any error they encounter on google products . Worse if if their site is deleted or similar problems
2) Google directs all product errors to their forums which are usually NEVER check by a google employee . So the end user never know what is the correct solution for the cryptic error they encounter .

The worst google developers are the blogger developers . Since the start they have cryptic errors with no solutions or developer note on what the hell the code means.


Finished: Sorry, the import failed due to a server error. The error code is bX-7rv9ue
Close

The error message above says there is a server error? and error code and NOTHING else. ??

Hi all my FB friends, may I request you to please do something for me: I want to stay PRIVATELY connected with you. However, with the recent changes in FB, the public can now see activities in any wall. This happens when our friend hits "like" or"comment", n, their friends would see our posts too. Unfortunately, we cannot change this setting by ourselves because Facebook has configured it this way. So I need your help. Only you can do this for me. PLEASE place your mouse over my name above (do not click), a window will appear, now move the mouse on “FRIENDS" (also without clicking), then down to "Settings", click here and a list will appear. REMOVE the CHECK on "COMMENTS & LIKE" by clicking on it. By doing this, my activity amongst my friends and my family will no longer become public. Many thanks! Paste this on your wall so your contacts would follow it too, that is, if you care about your privacy.

android tablet error - error processing purchase bf-bpa-13

Looks like google android errors are just as cryptic as the shitty microsoft os .

this error comes up when you click accept and install an application from the google store. It seems to be related with the existing account you have on your tablet when you try and install an app .

you can add another account and it works fine .

or take the long route and delete the account and add it again

this was found to be a dns error by the ISP

Bug in blogger page add web wurl

If you add a link on the blogger page url option and click save arrangement the link gets wiped out and is replaced by javascript:;

temp success
if you add the url and title and click save BUT DO NOT clicks save arrangement it saves the url without wiping it off.

sadly google developers do not have a system to get feedback from end users so bugs can remain


semi fail

if you change it to javascript:window.open('http://www.google.com', '_blank');

it works partly but gives and object error when it is opened on the original url
