GMail POP And IMAP Troubleshooter

GMail IMAP POP trouble Shooter
I found a nifty tool from Google code via Google Product Compass (German, Der Google Produkt-Kompass, Link below) that helps to troubleshoot IMAP and POP troubles with your GMail. (Or any mail provider if you know how to compile code) The compiled binary is GMail specific and checks your email software configuration and and checks the individual settings, and then attempts to create POP, IMAP, and SMTP connections using these settings.
You can download the compiled binary from the project page.

The Google POP and IMAP Troubleshooter is currently compatible with the following clients:

  • Outlook 2002
  • Outlook 2003
  • Outlook 2007
  • Outlook Express
  • Windows Mail
  • Thunderbird 1.5
  • Thunderbird 2.0

Please note that the Troubleshooting tool generates a report detailing your settings and test results, creating a file on your Desktop called PopImapTroubleshooterLog.html. In some cases you'll need this log file to continue troubleshooting a POP or IMAP problem.

I did try the product and did work, confirmed my configuration was correct, which I knew already!
