    Hi all,
    how can I restore my POP Gmail accounts from TimeMachine, if at all?

    I have tried to re-enter the details manually through Prefs/Accounts but when verifying the account it just sits there spinning away....

    Yosem*****e has decided to screw it up :mad:

    When I first installed Yosemite months ago, I had to delete and reload the gmail account. Out of 5 different gmail accounts only 2 of them needed restored/verified.

    Yeah I couldnt get mail to verify anything last night, have had to change IMAP instead of POP, even when disabled in Gmail. :mad:

    Is there anyway of Junk mail not being downloaded?

    EDIT Found this but cannot see the option...

    Update: Managed to sort it out.
    restored back before with Time Machine and checked the settings with POP. Re-tried it again and unchecked the Automatically detect settings, working fine now!


    one account out of 3 is not working under Internet accounts
    keep getting error message

    Authentication failed

    Failed to authenticate with Google

    also tried with/without 2step security, no go

    best thing is not to install the beta .3
