    hi guys,

    i've been using Mac since i got it 2 months ago, the Gmail setup is all along a headache to me as i am unable to SEND mails while i can receive. i've tried different servers such as smtp/pop/imap, it all ended up holding my outgoing mails in outbox.

    Is there anyone here who is experiencing this problem or did and already solved this problem?

    Thanks!

    Option 1: google for gmail's setup instructions for Mac and follow them.
    Option 2: take your Mac to the apple store and have them configure it for you.

    The setup should be very basic, as many people with osx use gmail.
