I'm a little embarrassed to say that after four years using OSX I'm only just now getting around to trying to use Mail. I'd always just been happy with my online Gmail aco**** but now that I have multiple email accounts and am getting a lot more mail through work, I'm keen to give Mail a try. I know there are a zillion blog posts and message board posts out there, not to mention the official advice, on how to configure Mail to access Gmail, but it ain't working for me. email address: email@example.com username: firstname.lastname@example.org incoming mail server: pop.gmail.com Outgoingmail server: smtp.gmail.com I put all of this info along with my Gmail password into the dialogue box that initally comes up when I first opened Mail (in 10.3), and it said it couldn't connect to pop.gmail.com. I'm now trying to add new accounts with this info in preferences and it's still not working. Does anyone know what the problem might be? I'm using Panther.
