One subject of the question is use of the program stunnel with program View Mail (run within Emacs) on a PC running Microsoft Windows, in order to read email from a server that requires use of TSL/SSL (Gmail). See the related question, How to configure Emacs smtp for secure server for using a secure server, for sending email.
The programs discussed are Emacs, VM (ViewMail) and stunnel. The platform under discussion is MS Windows.
The original question was asked by usr345 on 2010-04-24:
I tried to install vm on Windows, but when I tried to get the mail from gmail using ssl, an error emerges, emacs hanges-up. Here is the code from .emacs:
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/vm/lisp")) (add-to-list 'Info-default-directory-list (expand-file-name "~/vm/info")) (require 'vm-autoloads) (setq vm-primary-inbox "~/mail/inbox.mbox") (setq vm-crash-box "~/mail/inbox.crash.mbox") (setq vm-spool-files `((,vm-primary-inbox "pop-ssl:pop.gmail.com:995:pass:usr345:PASSWORD" ,vm-crash-box))) (setq vm-stunnel-program "g:/program files/stunnel/stunnel.exe")
So, the question:
- How to configure pop-ssl on Windows?
