    I reinstalled a fresh copy of Snow Leopard and now I'm setting up Mail. I can't seem to set up my gmail account to use POP, Mail automatically sets it up for me without me choosing for it to and chose IMAP. This is very frustrating! Any way to get POP? Thanks.

    Is there a reason you want to use POP? IMAP is a (subjectively) better protocol.

    Yes because I have 2 inboxes and the one that is receiving mail is half way down the left sidebar. Very annoying!

    I got mine to use pop by mistyping my e-mail address thus the auto config didn't work, I then entered all info manually then went back and corrected my e-mail address
