SSL E-mail  

with almost all email providers now using secure pop / smpt e-mail, AW2000 really needs to do a update.

I'm really having trouble using any of my email providers to provide the very old standard pop e-mail, and it sounds like others are frustrated as one by one, providers require ssl/ TLS.

Is there any hope? I've been a auction Wizard user since the 1990's, but its getting difficult.

Hi there

I will pass this along to tech.. I don't know if there are any plans to change that or not but I 'll sure check on it.

Re: SSL E-mail new [re: scalesusa]  

I have also been using AW2K for many years and would not trade it for all the tea in China! It has carried me through and paid the bills- being a stay-at-home mom, 6 years of cancer, and now kids in college. However, even the FTP site (pair.com) I was referred to by the AW2K program has tried to get me to convert. At Christmastime, I had transferred all of my files to a new server (at their request with a reduced rate promotion) only to find after I did all this work that they require SSL email on all new servers. They told me I was using an older program and I need to upgrade from it. When I said it was simply not possible- The reply for that was that I could be placed back onto the old server but it was not going to be nearly as reliable as I might want. I did this and in the end it took me about 4 days total. I had over 4000 auctions running, too, and was really scared of messing up. I was wondering if there was ANY kind of a workaround I could do to get this fixed or rigged in some fashion.

I have Qwest DSL, but had never bothered to use their e-mail. Turns out that it doesn't require ssl, so for now, anyway, I have it setup just for AW2000.

Re: SSL E-mail new [re: scalesusa]  

Yes, and my pair account has worked fine since 2000 or so when I originally started using both pair for hosting pictures/emails with AW2K BUT they explained that all of their newer servers use SSL and as older ones are phased out they will not offer old fashioned pop3/smtp. They simply say it is not secure and they just will not offer any longer. When the "antique" server that hosts me finally fails permanently then I am out of luck with them. :( I feel as many things as I have figured out and created work-arounds on that this must have something also.

Add my name to the list of long time users of Pair.com with AW2000. The system has worked well for me for over 10 years and I really wouldn't want to change either.

Re: SSL E-mail new [re: flpackrats]  

I don't know if this will be helpful to others but will relay my SSL experience.

Our email comes from a dedicated server that does not have a good spam filter so we set it up such that our email is received through Gmail with their excellent filter. You may have other reasons for using a another email client aside from AW2000.

However, in order to take advantage of AW2000 features by having our email download here we needed to use Gmail's POP3 which requires SSL, a feature AW2000 does not have.

My brilliant son (if I may say so myself ;)) came up with a workaround.

Download stunnel (http://www.stunnel.org/downloads.html) and install it. Then it will need to be edited (http://blog.thestateofme.com/2012/04/16/howto-get-pop3-from-gmail-without-ssl/) and, of course, "run" it.

In AW2000, your email account will need to be set up using POP3 host name: localhost and port 110 and SMTP host name: localhost and port 25
Your username and password will be those that you use for Gmail.

Cheers
Barbara

Re: SSL E-mail new [re: bluepennylady]  

so, Judy, what do you use to send an e-mail saying their order has been shipped? Thanks for all that you do.
