I have had popfile talking to gmail via pop3 for as long as I can remember, suddenly, popfile can no longer login.
I have my Thunderbird account settings as follows :-

Server Name: 127.0.0.1
Port: 110
Username: pop.gmail.com:995:My.gmail.login@gmail.com:SSL

Connection Security: none
Authentication method: Password, transmitted insecurely

Before you jump up and down about the password being insecure, it's only insecure between Popfile and Thunderbird. Popfile uses SSL to talk to gmail.

Any suggestions on what has changed and what I have to do to fix it?

Strange. It's working again today.
