    same problem with 0.8 and #935
    i have GroupManager, is this a problem? can you please help @Codisimus? What do you need from me to help me?
  6. Offline


    I'm sorry it won't work if your email doesn't support imap. Why not use gmail?
  7. Offline


    @Kartus it's free to get a gmail account, and you can literally set it and forget it. I made a 2nd gmail account specifically for this plugin so I know why I'm getting texted by an email lol.

    @Codisimus I still randomly (sometimes none for a week, sometimes 2 in a day) get a Timed Out error and I have the check mail interval set to 60. Should I try something higher or is it something else I'm not doing right? or is it just gmail that occasionally times out?
  8. Offline


    Well It makes sense that it would time out... do you know about how long b4 it does? I could have it "refresh" every x minutes so you don't have to worry about it timing out (and even if it did timeout it would eventually reconnect)
  9. Offline


    unfortunately like I said, it's random between occurrences. if it times out I'm not sure if it ever reconnects, so a refresh might be handy to make sure it keeps going. As it stands I just reboot the server and it's good to go again lol.

    like you think 24 hours would be good? 5? 1? I guess I could make it configurable and people can let me know wut works best
  11. Offline


    24 would work, but a configurable one would work too, I'd probably personally set it to 6 so it's a few times a day
  12. Offline


    ok I'll default to 24 and see if ppl still get the error

    I'll code this now and update in a few (minutes/hours)

    Well, I am the owner of my server (no permissions or anything) and I use this:

    /text add At&t ###-###-####

    and it won't work! It gives the error message:
    Number sent to ###-###-####
    Sending Confirmation Text...
    Sending Message...
    Send Failed

    Help please?
  17. Offline


    I know when I tried setting my number up the first time I did 1 ###-###-####, the 1 threw it out of whack and made it not work. It doesn't look like you did that.
    When you punched the number in did you use dashes? That might be a reason it's not working. I put in the 10 digit number with no dashes and it worked. If that isn't what the issue is I've no idea what could be going wrong.

    Could you please add orange uk to the carriers list :3 <3

    When i add my Phone Number to this Plugin it tells me it is sending Confirmation then it says Text Failed I put the thing in as /text add Sprint 5555555555 (Fake Number)

    Edit: Changed it to a Dif Port thing but it says it sends but i get nothen on my phone?? Please Help me i really need this Plugin
  20. Offline


    I dont want to use my phone.. So is it possible for me to us my email to communicate with my server?? Like send a message onto the server?
  21. Offline


    Okay, so I tried
    /text add At&t 15555555555

    And again, the same failure.

    Well, that's odd. Now it says 'that is already your current number'
    When I use /text squirrelboy1225 hi
    It says 'User's Number/Email has not been verified'
    I never got any verification on my phone, so....

    o2-uk doesnt work just comes up network not supported

    my own fault sorry but not i did/text add o2uk 07596914***it says its send my code but it hasnt :/
  23. Offline


    You sure you set up your email right? If not make sure you watch the video explaining how to do so
    Also maybe trying changing the port like jasonsj10 did.

    You need to add 10 digit numbers, perhaps I should support 11 as well...
    Also dashes are supported

    Orange is supported, did you try it?

    Can I try to add my number on your server? I can log in but I'll need permissions.
    Sprint should work but I haven't tested it.

    Instead of typeing '/text add verizon(or wutever carrier) 876 555 9043'
    simply type ' /text add email [email protected]'
    Emails and phones work the exact same so you could still run commands through email.

    I'll will have to fix that but you could change your number to a fake number and then change it back to resend the confirmation text

    Perhaps the sms gateway is wrong...
    In the sms.gateways file try changing o2uk to <number>@mmail.co.uk or <number>@mobile.celloneusa.com
    Please let me know if one of those works

    my number's a 10 digit number and it's working :D lol. "(123) 456 - 7890" format
    what I was saying was I originally tried (since I'm in the US and we do this for some numbers) was: 1 (123) 456-7890 with the beginning "1", and not including the parentheses. that made it not work (11 digits at that point).

    I meant 11 isn't supported lol. I edited it above.

    Don't worry, I realised that we don't really need textings :p

    I don't really understand this e-mail thing. But here is what is in my email file (using gmail).

    Okay Codisimus, you have made my day. I got it to work by changing the port to 587. YES, YES, YES!!

    Problem I am having is using Sprint the plugin doesn't accept my "enable" replied back from my phone. I get the txt about enabling just fine just the reply doesn't activate it. Texting to my email acct instead of phone works fine.

    reporting back about the refresh: it seems to be working. I have it set to 6 hours (down from the default 24). I don't get any messages that it happens which is nice. Overnight I got another 'timed out' error, and when I woke up, I tried sending a 'say' message to the server, and it worked. Also tried a 'who' command and it sent back a list of online players (which was none at the time).
    So, it's working! Thanks Codisimus!
