    Hi guys,

    This is a problem I am having with Thunderbird and Mail. For some reason I just do not get mails ontime

    For example, if I get an email from say Youtube, it won't appear in my Mail.app inbox AT ALL. But if I go to Gmail I will see it in there. This happens for about 3/10 emails, so at the moment it's not the majority, but it is certainly annoying

    Secondly Thunderbird just doesn't want to connect to my Gmail at all, not too sure why, and I have done step by step instructions, but Thunderbird refuses to get any mail at all. but really and truely I'd rather have the Mail.app working properly

    Is there any known fix for this at all?

    No, because you haven't really described the problem outside of "Gmail messages don't appear in Thunderbird or Mail."

    This could be due to any number of things, but it's most likely a configuration error on your part. Have you set up Mail according to Google's instructions? How about for Thunderbird?
