Hello
I am trying to use Indy "http//:www.indyproject.org" to read mails from my gmail.
In a .Net 2.0 windows application.
I added the Indy dll file and i can access my company mail but not the gmail.
My gmail allow pop3.

The problem is that gmail needs ssl and don't know how to do using indy.

Any one tell me the problem in my code?

Indy.Sockets.POP3 nn = new Indy.Sockets.POP3();
            nn.Username = "myMail@gmail.com";
            nn.Password = "mypassword";
  Indy.Sockets.POP3AuthenticationType.atUserPass;
 
 
//            Indy.Sockets.TIdIOHandlerTls ioSSLHandler = new Indy.Sockets.TIdIOHandlerTls();
            //ioSSLHandler.PassThrough = false;
//            ioSSLHandler.Options.Protocol = Mono.Security.Protocol.Tls.SecurityProtocolType.Tls;
//            nn.IOHandler = ioSSLHandler;
           
            nn.Connect("pop.gmail.com", 995);

private void ConnectToGMail()
        {
            Indy.Sockets.POP3 nn = new Indy.Sockets.POP3();
            nn.Username = "UserEmail";
            nn.Password = "password";
            nn.Host = "pop.gmail.com";
            nn.Port = 995;
 
            nn.OnStatus += new Indy.Sockets.TIdStatusEvent(nn_OnStatus);
            Indy.Sockets.TIdIOHandlerTls ioSSLHandler = new Indy.Sockets.TIdIOHandlerTls();
            ioSSLHandler.PassThrough = false;
            ioSSLHandler.Options.Protocol = Mono.Security.Protocol.Tls.SecurityProtocolType.Tls;
            nn.IOHandler = ioSSLHandler;
            nn.UseTLS = Indy.Sockets.UseTLS.utUseExplicitTLS;
            nn.Connect();
        }
 
 
void nn_OnStatus(object ASender, Indy.Sockets.Status AStatus, string AStatusText)
        {
            MessageBox.Show(AStatusText);
        }
