Did you mean: 

receive gmail

This has probably been asked before, but if it has I cannot find it.

I would like to receive email, from a Gmail account, it uses SSL.


I am running LabVIEW 13, if anyone has an example that would be a great help!!!!


Thank you!

Start with those and see how they work for you?  Or, at least show us what you've tried.  You'll see the google search I used was pretty much the exact subject you used for this thread.

Thank you very much for the information.  I have looked at these and I still don't understand.  If you or anyone has an example that would be great!

Again thank you!

Thank you, but I guess I didn’t explain this enough, all I want to do, well for right now, is read emails from Gmail, in a way that I can parse the content. Gmail uses SSL, and with all the settings set to allow other programs to access it, I still can NOT do it. 

Is there any way to do this within LabVIEW?  
If anyone has an example that would help a lot!!!  I am using LabVIEW 13

Thank you very much!

You just got a reply with 3 links in it. The middle link seems to be exactly what you are looking for. What is it that these solutions are missing?

Yes, and I think it would be, but I cannot get it working.  I get this error: 


Error 1386 occurred at Constructor Node in DOTNET POP3

Possible reason(s):

LabVIEW: The specified .NET class is not available in LabVIEW.


I must be doing something wrong, how do I register the 'Higuchi.Mail.dll" so that LabVIEW knows to use it.  I have never worked with .net stuff before.

Thank you very much!

Did you unzip the two files so they're eright next to each other on your pc?

Yes, what I ended up doing was moving the ".dll" to the main LabVIEW folder.  That fixed it.

I have it working now.


Thank you so very much!!!!!!!!!!!!
