    Tiger or leopard? Pop3 or imap? Have yo enabled settings in your gmail account?

    The basic gist of it is this:

    Pick pop3 (non-synchronizing) or imap (synchronizing)
    Enable pop3 or imap in gmail settings
    Mail should automatically detect server settings, so just set the name, pw, and pop/imap

    No that won't help, actually I have had many issues with my Googlemail account on Mail 3.0. The only possible way I've found to have reliable e-mail is to have the SMTP address as, with the Default (25, 465, 587) ports selected, Using SSL and having the authentication as my Hotmail account details. Basically it looks like this-->

    My e-mail address and password for Hotmail go in the authentication box.
    Then you use those SMTP Settings with your Googlemail account and all shall be well :)
