Hi,

I've been looking around and keep on finding the line:

imap.Connect("imap.gmail.com", 993, null, ImapSecurity.Implicit);

However in the library that I downloaded from http://www.rebex.net/secure-mail.net/features-imap.aspx, the vs2008 version, I only could find the call

imap.Connect("imap.gmail.com", 993);

Without the subsequent arguments. I've tried connecting however rebex keeps timing out, though I've connected with telnet without timing out.

thanks

Ian.

Hi,

if you see only short variant of imap.Connect method it's probably because you are using a plain 'Rebex Mail' or Rebex IMAP component. To connect using IMAP/SSL you have to use 'Rebex secure Mail' or Rebex Secure IMAP. To compare capabilities of those two check the table on the bottom of following page: http://www.rebex.net/secure-mail.net/purchase.aspx

Try to download purchased copy Rebex Secure Mail component from rebex.net/protected. If you do not see it there, please contact our support@rebex.net for an upgrade pricing.

Hi, I wanted to try the class out before purchasing it, which is the point of the 30 day trial as I understood. I wasn't aware that I was using the plain one, as I downloaded the trial from what I thought was the correct page.
