Getting GMail Notifier to Work After Enabling 'Always Use https' Option
By Steve Muench on Nov 04, 2009
I use Gmail for my personal email and recently enabled a new feature in the Gmail preferences called 'Always Use https'. I hadn't previously connected this change of setting to the fact that for the last few days my Gmail Notifier has not been working (couldn't connect to mailbox).
Just in case this happens to anyone who reads this blog, here is the solution in the GMail Known Issues site. See the Notifier cannot connect to mailbox with 'Always use https' setting section for a registry patch to apply to make it work again.
