    Well let's see... by logging into GMail... and then in the upper right it says "Help"... after clicking that it has this thing in there called POP Access.. After clicking that it has this "Configuring your email client: Apple Mail"

    try in there somewhere... i'm going to take a guess and say all the info you need is in that.

    I've got all 6 of my Gmail accounts hooked up to mail. It makes checking them a breeze :)

    a question

    since we're talking about gmail using mail, is there a way to avoid viewing my sent messages in my inbox, or am i stuck doing this because google displays conversations in the inbox?

    no biggie either way, just wondering.

    Thanks.

    I have gmail set up on both my computers in mail, but the only problem is, some messages come through on one, but not the other and vice versa. GMail has this stupid idea of only allowing messages after the last check to be allowed through again. This doesn't happen with any other POP server. So, if anyone wants to do something like I've done, be aware of that issue (note: it happens with any mail client).

    This is a setting which can be changed. go to you gmail account.
    Settings>
    Forwarding and POP>
    Enable POP for all mail

    edit: i just noticed that this setting reloads every email you hvae ever received when you login.

    my gmail works fine in mail - however, it gets sporadic here and there, so not 100% reliable

    I have started forwarding my gmail to my .mac email instead
