Gmail "Get mail from other accounts" errors pop to exchange server
Posted on 2009-07-10
I have an exchange server, Exchange 2003 Standard SP2, and a gmail account.
I was hoping to migrate my mail from the exchange mailbox to the gmail account.
I set up the Get mail from other accounts successfully.
For the first few minutes mail transferred successfully.
But then it started failing with the error
Fri, Jul 10, 2009 at 9:19 AM Error: Server is temporarily unavailable.
Server returned error "Error in RETR command: The requested message is no longer available; it may ..."
Fri, Jul 10, 2009 at 9:17 AM 199 mails fetched. 9881 mails remaining.
Fri, Jul 10, 2009 at 9:17 AM Error: Server is temporarily unavailable.
Server returned error "Error in RETR command: Received an empty line"
Fri, Jul 10, 2009 at 9:15 AM 200 mails fetched. 10080 mails remaining.
Fri, Jul 10, 2009 at 9:14 AM 200 mails fetched. 10280 mails remaining.
The successes happen each time I click the "Edit Info" button then Save Changes without actually making any changes.
Then it goes back to failing.
I am wondering if there are any POP3 settings on the exchange server that could be optimized to help gmail's script succeed more consistently.
