Did you manage to set-up gMail POP on Mail.app? - 02/17/05 12:05 PM

I followed the help and set up everything correctly, but Mail just doesn't want to start downloading the gMail. Also, what I find weird is that in the gMail settings/Forwarding and POP I switch on the radio button which says: Enable POP for all mail (even mail that's already been downloaded) and save the changes, but when i return to these settings, none of the three radio buttons are selected? Any help would be appreciated.<br><br>

That's it. If you go back to it, none of the buttons will be pushed, but it will say above it that it is been enabled. <br><br>Also, I'm sending and receiving e-mail through Mozilla with Gmail just fine, using their server both ways. I also have my Panther Firewall full up. Looks like there's no issue after all. <br>

I have mine working just fine. When you set it up via mail pay close attention to the port numbers. ...and make sure you have the SSL connection checked.<br><br>

I find it easier to just forward the gmail to another email address I have so that I have a copy on my computer, and the gmail inbox.<br><br>

Just the inbox. <br><br>What you really want is Gmail to enable IMAP support, so everything is mirrored on your computer. Hopefully soon!<br><br>

Hmm, I'm having trouble getting Mail to access it. I've got the mail server set to my isp's one, but it still won't connect. Any ideas?<br><br>

Gmail uses it's own special ports...are you behind a firewall that might be blocking them?<br><br>

I'm pretty sure that Cox blocks port 21... that's why I've been using the pop.east.cox.net. I have to do the same thing with my school account.<br><br>
