Is it just me? On entering my password I get a message telling me to use webmail. It was fine yesterday.

Hello.

A few weeks ago a forum member and I had a similar problem with Claws Mail and GMX.
I found that corrections to SSL were made to the latest version of Claws-mail, and gave it a try.
With this new version, POP3 login over SSL is working again. The other forum member had success by only changing the port number.

The problem we had discussed on 30 October in the German forum section, entitled "Wieder Probleme mit GMX".

Maybe you have the same problem. Is there a newer Pine with corrections to SSL? Can you use a different port number?

Thank you westms. Seems to be working again now; it was probably just a glitch.
