WiiMail is a simple email client for your Wii, allowing you to retrieve and send mail.
It currently supports both POP3 and SMTP, and supports using SSL/TLS over these protocols. IMAP is currently not supported, but may be implemented in the future.
Note to developers: I will also be releasing a library, which could be useful if you would like to send an email from your application (e.g. for error reporting).
- Send mail via SMTP
- Retrieve mail via POP3
- Save your settings on the SD card
- Email signature
- One account (for now)
To retrieve email, you must enter your server settings in the POP settings menu (e.g. for Gmail, the POP server is pop.gmail.com). You also need your username/password, the port, and whether the server uses SSL, TLS, or no encryption (e.g. for Gmail, this is port 995 and SSL).
Note: Gmail users must enable POP access in their Gmail settings.
To send email, you must also enter your server settings in the SMTP settings menu (e.g. for Gmail, this is smtp.gmail.com). You also need your username/password, the port, and whether the server uses SSL, TLS, or no encryption (e.g. for Gmail, this either port 465 and SSL, or port 587 and TLS).
It is recommended that you use encryption if your server supports it (many servers now require it). Otherwise, you risk exposing your emails and your username/password to anybody listening in.
