POP and IMAP Troubleshooter

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

The POP and IMAP Troubleshooter is a wizard-like application that people can use to diagnose and repair problems when connecting to email service providers. It reads the configuration files of several email clients, checks them for appropriate settings, and then attempts to create a connection to the provider's servers. You can compile a generic version that allows you to connect to arbitrary servers, or a provider-specific version that can check additional constraints, such as the correct IMAP server name. Google's own binary is available from our Gmail support pages. The troubleshooter is written in C++ using Qt, and can be built for Linux, Windows, and the Mac. 

We welcome your feedback. Check out the code and join our discussion group. Happy hacking!
