ConsignPro and Liberty are incompatible with Gmail or any secure email service.
Although Liberty made attempts to partially support it, it is not compatible with secure connections to Gmail today.
Why is it that free software has had built-in SSL/TLS support for years, but consignment software vendors who sell their software for $1,000 on up, haven’t added this most-basic of features? It truly is a few lines of code, literally. We’ve seen a lot of crappy “workarounds” which only break systems.
ConsignmentTill offers support for SSL, but in our testing the application locked-up when attempting to Test settings. We’ll follow-up again with additional details.
ConsignmentTill supports TLS on port 587…
SBS’ The Consignment Shop supports SSL…
There’s just no excuse for not supporting secure email connections and we’d like to see the consignment software vendors step up to the plate here and address this issue. Too busy? Too many other features to add?
By all means, if you’re a software vendor and have any feedback as to why this hasn’t been added or available for years, feel free to post your comment below.
