    I want to use my gmail account with Mail but I am so confused. Under preferences and account information I currently have the following

    "Account Type: .Mac IMAP

    Description: myname@mac.com
    Email address: myname@mac.com

    Incoming Mail Server: mail.mac.com

    Outgoing Mail Server: smtp.mac.com:myname"

    It also says my SMTP is offline so this might be some of my problem...how do I change this?

    Does this use both my .mac account and gmail account?
