Digsby no longer connecting to Gmail

Digsby no longer connecting to Gmail

As of a few days ago, Digsby no longer shows gmail emails. When Digsby starts, it shows "connecting" after the account name as usual, but then it just shows "0" for all of the emails, which is incorrect.

Is there any fix for this?

I wonder if Google's two step authorisation has something to do with this.

As a workaround IMAP support still works.

imap.gmail.com:993 ssl.

So I should add my accounts as IMAP accounts instead of Google Accounts?

Well, I just tried this and you're right that it will get the messages, but double clicking the account name doesn't open it in the browser, which I really need.

Anybody know what caused the Google Accounts to stop working, or if there's a way to fix it?

Thank you, fallen888. My problem is that I'm only using gmail via webmail. I don't use Outlook anymore after losing my downloaded mail a few times due to crashes. I have gmail set up to work with IMAP online. It works with my phone and my tablet perfectly. I was trying to get the workaround to show me when I had new mail in my gmail accounts as L0rdPh03nix indicated... but my gmail accounts still show "0". Have no idea how L0rdPh03nix is seeing the messages in the Digsby sidebar. Thanks.

I thought this was something to do with two step, so I issued an application specific password and it still shows zero messages with no indication of a login error.

I have the same problem!!!
Creating an IMAP email account per Gmail account is much work!!!
I have 13 Gmail accounts synchronized to see the email and talk with Google Talk.

The problem I have with creating IMAP accounts isn't that Google Talk doesn't work (since I don't use it), but rather that double clicking the account doesn't log in in the browser (which is essential since I have lots of accounts).

I wish one of the developers would comment on this issue. I'm starting to think Digsby is dead.

Only just starting to think that? Most of us have been saying it for over a year now.

This IMAP thing doesn't work for me, don't know why Digsby can't connect to gmail via IMAP either. So for me Digsby is becoming useless. The combination of chat and email bundler made Digsby unique, nothing else. I installed gmail check again and can use for chatting whatever platform I want. Back to stone age. Hopefully there will be another application soon for chat AND mail. And a staff working to solve problems.

I've never had any problems with digsby until now. It's a shame if no one is going to keep updating it, as it's the best client of its kind in my opinion.
