    I understand I'll get the e-mails and read them cause I'll see emails I missed that are supposed to go to my regular e-mail gallons but for whatever reason they don't. The tough thing is only see in the plain text in the e-mail even after acknowledging the HTML but you'll it could only see the plane text and so most the email isn't there but I'll still usually read them so if not at least the title.

    If a mail doesn't display anything when viewed in plain text form, it's usually mail I'm not interested in. :]



    Quite useful indeed, especially back when it was not possible to log into PlayOnline without an active subscription. At least as far as I remember, that used to not be possible. Don't know if it was a conscious choice, or a kind of a by-product from switching to SqEX Account Management (the status of the content IDs seem to be checked after hitting 'Play').

    I'd guess the main security issue here is non-maintenance. No one is looking, and that's not good for these kinds of things. For example the community site links: I'm almost certain there are more than a few spammy sites linked to there now, as domains have changed owners and so on.
    What email client do you use? I am quite curious. Also do you know what exact protocol POL mail uses? I have been unsuccessful in the past trying to get it to work with my Thunderbird client.

    Mainly Claws Mail at this time (Thunderbird is getting increasingly annoying to me). No idea how good the non-Linux builds are though.

    As for the POP, all it should require is...

    Server for Receiving: po000.pol.com (port 110)

    For secure authentication use 'APOP'. Seems to mean 'Encrypted Password' in Thunderbird.

    Server for Sending: ma000.pol.com

    Sending I don't have working currently. I think I did in the past, but I'm not entirely sure now...

    Edit:

    Looks like sending requires pretending to be in PlayOnline... sort of, so I'd probably not go for that. ^^;
