    Anyone know how I go about receiving my gmail in the mail app in 10.5?
    What are the proper settings?

    Help is appreciated.

    I thought that it was updated in Leopard so all you have to do is put in your email address and the Mail app does the rest.

    I hope this helps.

    actually, this won't work if you've enabled imap gmail. you have to enter in the settings manually.

    to the op, you need to enable pop or imap access in gmail's settings before you can configure mail.app to retrieve your gmail. if you're going the pop route, then all you need to enter is username and password. if you choose imap, you have to enter in your settings manually.

    So does this mean that I could use my standard Yahoo! account in Mail?

    In tiger you need a Yahoo! Plus account yeah?

    No, you still need the Plus service. Mail just automates the setup now if you have it.
