checkgmail error ?

Postby scottjge on Mon Apr 01, 2013 1:13 pm

Has anyone had any problems with CheckGmail lately ? I have had it on my computer running for over a year and then about 2 weeks ago it comes up with (error: 200 OK), so I go to google to find a solution, but no one has had problems lately. I tried all of the older fixes but nothing worked.

Has anyone else experienced any problems with CheckGmail lately, if so, do you know a fix ?

Thanks for the url but unfortunately I have already read it and applied all ideas with no results. Once I got the error:200 fixed, I would end up with error:500. I don't know what happened to checkgmail but it was working in the morning and started giving error's in the afternoon. I was hoping that other were having the same problem.

Let me re-install checkgmail and then follow your topic again just to make sure that I did everything right. I will let you know how it turns out.

Thank you for your reply and help.

it is a good app.


It is indeed, far and away the best of its type in my opinion, but like you say, so much trouble at the moment. Mine is working properly now and has been for a few weeks, the last thing I had to do with it was the fix given here: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=121540&hilit=fixing+checkgmail&start=20#p697567 but I wasn't getting the same error as you, so I doubt that is the one you are looking for. I hope it isn't yet another new one :(

The problem is that google keep changing things, tell nobody, and break stuff like checkgmail (probably deliberately because they don't like gmail checkers as they can't spam you and spy on you so easily when you use them). The other trouble is that whoever maintains the program doesn't seem to do much with it and all these fixes come from end users, which all takes a lot of time.

I will check out the new url and see what happens.

Yes, that is my opinion of it also. It acts like the developer has abandon the project. I fixed the one that happened in January but this last error started about 2 weeks ago. Lets keep our fingers crossed and hope someone smarter than I am can get a fix for it.

Yup that one did it. Checkgmail is up and running again. I wonder for how long this time. :) Now I can got to see what is making LMDE so slow now. I click on an icon on the desktop and it take 30 secs for it open. Firefox is even worse when I am surfing. Slooooooow !

Thanks again for your help, I really appreciate a reply.
