I used the directions provided and did a search here. I would like to use Mail and my Gmail account together I set it up but it would not connect and retrieve my messages. Yes I have turned on POP in Gmail

I don't know about the original poster, but I have Mail 2.1.1, and gmail's instructions don't work (outdated maybe?) the menus are just different enough that the gmail help doesn't work.

I am running:

MAIL Version 2.1.1 (752.3) (I think that is the latest)


Got all your settings correct?

pop.gmail.com
smtp.gmail.com

got your full username including "gmail" (user@gmail.com)

Password correct?

All the correct ports?
