HOWTO: Use gmail IMAP with Centrafuse
I've noticed a number of people having problems with using gmail in centrafuse. Well, I'm using it directly in the centrafuse email client. There are a few easy steps to getting up and running.
1. enable IMAP in your gmail account. It's under 'settings'.
2. Use the following settings in the centrafuse email client
Email Name: Your Name
Email address: email@example.com
User name: firstname.lastname@example.org
incoming server: imap.gmail.com
outgoing server: smtp.gmail.com
incoming port: 993
outgoing port: 587
server type: imap
imap folder: Inbox
incoming security: TLS/SSL Implicit
outgoing security: TLS/SSL Explicit
save your settings, and check your email! If it does not work, try restarting centrafuse and checking the incoming port setting again. For some reason, CF changed my incoming port the first time I did this and I needed to type it in and save it again.
