Is there a way to increase the rate at which Gmail fetches mail from another account? – Web Applications Stack Exchange

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/02/05

[WayBack] Is there a way to increase the rate at which Gmail fetches mail from another account? – Web Applications Stack Exchange got a nice follow-up on Twitter:

This is way better than suggestions from the past: increase the frequency in which email arrives at the POP3 account.

From a while back, but still relevant as the speed of the GMail web-UI still has not improved.

Outlook 2013 cannot logon to gmail any more

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/09/20

A problem on a PC I did not use often: as of a sudden, Outlook 2013 could not access a gmail account any more.

Luckily, Outlook showed me this message in a dialog box:

Please log in via your web browser: https://support.google.com/mail/accounts/answer/78754 (Failure)

This directed me to [WayBack] Use IMAP to check Gmail on other email clients – Gmail Help

In turn that pointed to [WayBack] Let less secure apps access your account – Google Account Help

Finally that one indicated the configuration page changed to https://myaccount.google.com/lesssecureapps

This is similar to the cause of “the user name or password for imap.gmail is incorrect” – iPad, iPod or iPhone with iOS < 7

It all comes down to gmail forcing OAUTH2: [WayBack] tls – Why doesn’t outlook 2013 meet modern security standards? – Information Security Stack Exchange

My message was blocked – Google Product Forums

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/03/18

Cool: https://support.google.com/mail/?p=RfcMessageNonCompliant

So Google does RFC checkking: [Archive.isMy message was blocked – Google Product Forums and shows bot the above link and this in the SMTP protocol:

“Our system has detected that this message is not RFC 5322 compliant,”

After that is the actual reason (for instance no From).

It looks like gmail finally understands Outlook Calendar entries

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/12

For a very long time, gMail did nothing with Outlook Calendar entires.

So I had to view at the message source, then translate them to Google Calendar entries myself.

--_000_430b30b9ffd74d959b74ab7ba778b487ultrawarenl_
Content-Type: text/calendar; charset="utf-8"; method=REQUEST
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

...

As of late, they seem to be processed into Google Calendar compatible entries. Nice!
