GmailBox MQTT Working?

by swb1701 on Sun Sep 02, 2018 2:44 pm

In running the Gmailbox project -- I do get a notification when I reboot my board but generally not after that. I turned debugging on in the IO library
and see that it is maintaining the connection and seems to be successfully pinging but is not generally getting notifications when an entry is added to my gmail
feed. Once in a long while it does work often notifying about an entry that came in a while ago rather than more recent entries. Are there any known
issues with in getting messages in a timely fashion?

It seems to be working better today -- with no changes on my side -- so I'm guessing something was causing delayed/missing messages on the IO site itself.

The GmailBox project relies on IFTTT to retrieve emails from your gmail account. It can sometimes be delayed on serving messages from Gmailbox->IFTTT->AIO. Some users have reported less of a lag using Zapier (https://learn.adafruit.com/using-zapier ... o?view=all) instead of IFTTT.

I was testing by adding the messages directly to the IO channel myself -- not relying on gmail. But as I said, it began to work as designed yesterday. So something on the IO end was likely not sending the notifications even when I was directly posting data to the IO channel myself.

Hm, strange. Doesn't seem like there were any issues on the status page (https://status.adafruit.com/). If the issue persists, or crops up again, feel free to post here.

I am facing issue with my Gmail account, actually, I am getting Gmail error 007 while accessing my Gmail account. Anyone else has faced this kind of error? Let me know if anyone has any idea regarding this error.

You might want to check the status of your gmail account from IFTTT: https://help.ifttt.com/hc/en-us/article ... oting-tips
