Default Re: Telnet

Nope cant say that i have. From what i know Gmail uses Pop and IMAP service. I think you have to contact Google to find out how to make Telnet work.

I could be way off. I have not used telnet since the early days on the net for me. Like over 15 years ago. I dont remember much if anything about it now.
