Ok, then in that case, Mailwatch doesn't support your setup.

No idea; perhaps it's bypassing the proxy somehow? GMail's checker just
uses normal https on port 443.

Not one that was ever released, no. I'll say again: Mailwatch has not
ever had, and does not now have, proxy support. The 'error in push
function' means that it connected successfully to the server (and may
have successfully done a TLS handshake, but I'm not sure), but send() is
failing for some reason.
