Reading Email from Edwin/Imail

After much consternation, poring over of manuals, and scouring of the Interwebs for a decent, working `stunnel.conf’, I am finally able to read my mail from Edwin. And yes, it is amazing.

I think it’s probably time for me to make some documentation contributions to MIT Scheme and stunnel both.

Call it one more stumbling block overcome on the road to “Full Edwin”.

For the record, here are a few things to note when setting up Edwin’s IMail program:

– Read the manual! It’s available in a lovely linked PDF at
http://gnu.org/s/mit-scheme.

– Don’t fiddle with the value of `imail-default-imap-server’. Instead, configure your `stunnel.conf’ as shown below.

– Even after reading the manual, you need to play around in IMail to learn how best to do things. (I’m still working on this, as I literally just got it set up this morning.)

Finally, here’s my working stunnel.conf:

# GLOBAL OPTIONS

debug = 7
output = /home/rml/stunnel.log

# SERVICE-LEVEL OPTIONS

[IMAP (Gmail) Incoming]
client = yes
accept = 127.0.0.1:143
connect = imap.gmail.com:993

[SMTP (Gmail) Outgoing]
client = yes
accept = 127.0.0.1:587
connect = smtp.gmail.com:465

Onward, aspiring Scheme wizards!

(Now to figure out how to send!)
