Re: Hotmail, Live, Outlook mail not working/connecting?

If WebMail works by controlling an IE automation object and parsing the HTML or AJAX results, and the problem is that sites change, one solution could be to leave it to the community to maintain. Perhaps by doing site navigation and parsing through user-editable Javascript.

Re: Yahoo's OAuth working intermittently?

Just a follow-up...

Still good. It was indeed only port 443 being overly selective.

Re: Yahoo's OAuth working intermittently?

Yep. I already suspected the refresh token requests, but seeing it plainly in the log made it more obvious (BTW, logging also IPs could be useful). The firewall rules for port 993 were less restrictive, for port 443 more. Non-Yahoo didn't have issues, I thought maybe because of longer token expiry t...

Re: Yahoo's OAuth working intermittently?

Thanks!

Oh, I didn't realize you'd have specific interest in the logs.
But now it looks like it's just a firewall issue. :? Just need to figure out which rules are responsible for the intermittent behavior.

Re: Security concerns

Oh, exceptions in the GUI flow. I don't see many options here other than the one mentioned. But the logic could be defensive: default is to show the GUI password prompt, specific special case(s) are for "auto-password". By "GUI" I mean the "admin password". The special case is implied after that bul...

What happens when you save that HTML, and try to view it in Internet Explorer?

Re: Yahoo's OAuth working intermittently?

Thanks spc3rd . The error is only what I wrote in the first post. (Well, technically it's: "(OAuthAccess empty) -- OAuth2: You may need to re-allow POP Peeper access. Edit the account and press the 'OAuth2' button to re-authorize.") Jeff , No simultaneous multi-location accesses to Yahoo. The thing ...

Re: Security concerns

Do you mean exceptions that lead to crashes? I'm not sure what you mean by "passing on" the password. Here's how I imagine it might work. I haven't checked any "best practices" so the logic could be faulty, but just a general idea: User enters password, and two things happen immediately. INI: The pa...

Yahoo's OAuth working intermittently?

Anyone having intermittent trouble with Yahoo's OAuth? ("OAuthAccess empty") I've been watching the behavior the last few days. I'm new to POP Peeper, so don't know yet if the cause is Yahoo or PP. After a fresh authorization it always works, at least once. One day it worked during a few hours. The ...

Re: Security concerns

I suppose Yahoo's oob doesn't really matter since v5 solves it anyway. :) Didn't know the INI encryption was added recently. Instead of GUI, perhaps it's simpler to just enable it by default, at least when Admin password is set. Manual editing or viewing of INI settings could be useful in special ca...

Re: Security concerns

Thanks. OAuth : If the request to esumsoft.com over port 80 is simply the redirect from Yahoo, both the user's IP and the authorization code can be watched by intermediate hops. Then, both are probably stored as plaintext in the final server's access log. Anyway, Yahoo supports now "redirect_uri=oob...

Security concerns

First, thanks for the app! It's always nice to find old style software, in the good sense of the word. I'm still exploring, and have a few questions and suggestions. OAuth flow (I'm hardly well-versed so could be misinterpreting some details, but anyway...) redirect_uri points to esumsoft.com. Does ...
