ok, so i now tried to make "allow all" at the pop gmail settings again but i'm getting this message:



$ fetchmail -vk
fetchmail: 6.3.8 querying pop.gmail.com (protocol POP3) at Sat Oct 20 01:19:40 2
007: poll started
fetchmail: getaddrinfo("pop.gmail.com","pop3s") error: nodename nor servname pro
vided, or not known
POP3 connection to pop.gmail.com failed: Operation not permitted

007: poll completed
fetchmail: Query status=2 (SOCKET)

So why do you want to do this? Why not just use an email client like outlook or thunderbird?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
