Phrawm48 Posted October 19, 2005 Share Posted October 19, 2005 Does anyone have any ideas how one can pull AIM.com Web mail into SpamCop? First, AIM.com Web mail doesn't provide the means of forwarding mail to another address. (Gee, what a surprise...) Second, AIM.com accounts evidently aren't "trickable" as described in this SpamCop help advisory: http://www.spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/305.html More specifically, attempts to use popgate.cesmail.net to pull AIM.com mail into SpamCopy results in an invalid password error. YES, I have carefully and repeatedly verified that I've put the correct password into "SpamCop Webmail | Options | SpamCop Tools | Configure external POP servers." Just to see what happens, I've also tried type the IMAP server address used by AIM.com into "Configure external POP servers." Not surprisingly, this produced the expected result of an "error 5" insofar as one shouldn't expect to use POP to retrieve IMAP mail. (I didn't expect to, but thought I'd try before posting...) I already know how to configure my Thunderbird email client to access AIM.com via IMAP. I'd much prefer, however, to figure out if I can "trick" AIM.com into giving up my messages to SpamCop. Any ideas? Cheers & thanks, Riley Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
