    Following the instructions on the Gmail page, I set up Apple Mail to work and all that.

    Except it doesn't. Receiving works fine, but trying to send mail results in this:

    The server response was: 5.1.2 Bad or missing RCPT domain 24sm2323526nzn
    Use the pop-up menu below to try a different outgoing mail server.  All messages will use this server until you quit Mail or change your network settings.

    A little bit of searching didn't turn up anything that really helped. Anyone know how to fix this?

    I did use a different port for one of the settings, but only because it wasn't changeable. Don't know if that'd make a difference.

    Are we there yet?
    I had the same problem on and off yesterday, but it went away finally. There were a few pieces of mail that did not make it - most did. I verified this by going straight to my gmail account using Safari. I simply resent those that got missed.

    Dunno - since it's free, I didn't pursue that matter too far, but I also couldn't find any web hits, nor did I see anything today from Google that there was a problem.

    Anywho - it's working now.
