It will not work with Yahoo unless you pay yahoo for forward rights.

Looks like gmail requiring SSL is causing the problem

Just got a note from the author.
GMail requieres a SSL connection, this is not yet implemented, but I have an idea that hopefully will work....

So he is working on it. :)

Besides Gmail I am happy to say this is working great on all other normal pop services. :)

Hmmm, it worked for my Yahoo! e-mail, but probably because I was with SBC (with an SBC domain) before they joined forces with Yahoo!.

I'm kinda curious about the intended audience for this feature. As an IT Infrastructure-type at work, this is the sort of "feature" that we cringe over. We take all these steps to block viruses and worms through the corporate e-maill filters and anti-virus, but then some yahoo (sorry about that ;)) goes and logs into their home e-mail while at work and *bam*, NIMDA is spreading behind the firewalls...

This feature looks like a low-key way to thwart some of the blocking of ISPs and their webmail that we have in place. If they find out, they'll block the SatelliteGuys URL and IP addresses.:(

Nope none, the author is trying to work with the Gmail folks but unfortunately they are not trying to work with him.

I have been using the Webmail feature all wee as I have been in class and it has worked very well for me.
