I am having problems with google mail and pop3 access, using Indy 9.
I can access the pop3 account without any problems. However, my problem is the number of messages that the pop3 client can "see"
For testing purposes, this is what I did:
1. Created a new google mail account
2. Enabled pop3 for this account
3. Sent 500 messages to this account
Now, using Delphi 5 and Indy 9 I am using the pop3 client to connect.
I conned to the mail box OK and then use:
This is where it gets weird. The number returned by this command is 254, and I can't get access to the other 246 messages.
If I retrieve these messages, these are the first 254 messages sent.
If I log into my gmail account via the web and delete some of the messages, run the test program again, I can see some of the newer messages, but pop3.CheckMessages still only returns 254
Is this some magic number or is there a limit to the number of messages a gmail account will let you "pop" in one session?
Thanks for any help
