    Unable to receive pop gmail & load mail on thunderbird.

    Hi,

    I recently removed my old version of Thunderbird and replaced with the newest version 2.0.0.17. I tried to configure the pop gmail but I wasn't able to load my email from the server into thunderbird. When tried to write and email and send it to myself. When I logged in into my account by using browser, the email shown on my inbox. But it wasn't showing in thunderbird at all. None of the mail appeared in my thnderbird. I don't know why....

    I'm getting frustrated..I don't know what to do. I'm using macbook version 10.5.4.

    Please help :(

    Thank you.

    Wow, you revived an oldy.

    Thats the way POP operates, you will only get it at the location you open it at. I believe you expect what IMAP offers. Try to use that instead.
