Unable to logon to the server using Secure Password Authentication. Account: 'pop.gmail.com', Server: 'pop.gmail.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR malformed command ns7mb100277895pbb', Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC18

Been a very long time since the above error has appeared on Outlook Express incoming mail !!!, always been so reliable.

Kept a copy of GMail's account details in OE and they are correct.

Any help appreciated.

That's not Gmail, that's an issue with your local PC if memory serves me correctly.

Hi Chil, the next posting is the answer and don't ask me how that box became a ticked box.

Using Outlook to access Gmail? OMG why (ie why not just use your browser)? oh well everyone to their own in this free world :-)

That's doubling up, omg. It all comes into Outlook Express in one hit.

Because some people like to actually keep a local copy of their email. We do this at my work copy emails for a particular job into the clients folder, can't do that fro the browser and who wants to spend hours copy and pasting emails

Gmail servers are:

Incoming: IMAP.gmail.com (not pop3)
Outgoing: SMTP.gmail.com

The following brings GMail emails over to Outlook Express:

Incoming: pop.gmail.com
Outgoing: smtp.gmail.com

Thats ONLY if you're using the POP protocol.
If you're using IMAP, then sure, it's correct. It depends on what you've enabled on your account.

Yes Chil, POP has always has always been on this pc, anything else and one would have to go back to school to learn IMAP.

It's a b u g g e r getting old !.

Which is more reliable, IMAP or Pop3 ?

Are oranges more reliable than apples?

Yeah there's no "reliability" difference, just different methods of getting your emails really.
