    Exclamation Gmail: SSL Connection Failure

    Dear Zimbra,

    Two days ago, I downloaded ZD to use it for my Gmail and Yahoo. However, during the synchronizing of the Gmail, a message on the setup page shows, "SSL Connection failure, please check port and host setting."

    I made sure that the IMAP and everything else was enabled on my Gmail account. And I could not figure out how to solve this issue. I looked through the forums, but in vain.

    This is my system info.
    Microsoft Window XP professional
    Version 2002
    Service Pack 3

    And the ZD version I downloaded it two days ago. I don't know which version is this

    Could you follow up this issue please.

    My appreciations,

    Benchmark Cons,

    1) Double check your GMail account is an IMAP account and not a POP3 account. try setting it up as POP3 and see if it connects over SSL.

    Below are the GMAil server and port information:
    Google Gmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (SSL enabled, port 995)

    Outgoing Mail Server - use the SMTP mail server address provided by your local ISP or (SSL enabled, port 465)

    Hope this Helps.
