First off I am not using tiger yet.

I have tried numerous times to get mail to work. I set it up exactly like Gmail says to. Exactly like it tells me too. However I can send mail but not recieve it.

Any ideas.

You may want to check the settings again, just to be sure. I've set them up exactly as per the instructions on the GMail site and have had no problems... Well every now and then it wont connect, but the problem rectifies itself after a few minutes. There's another thread somewhere here documenting the issue.

Anyone else?

It always says it has problems with the pop server, however I have double checked and triple checked i for inconsistencies.

Thanks so far.

Funny, I have the exact opposite problem. I've checked it over many times and done everything perfecty. I can get all my mail in my gmail account up and running, but I can't send anything.

Maybe we should compare notes.

Good plan, I set up entourage and it works fine, its just mail. And **** it I want to use mail!

Between this problem and my broken preview proble (it opens then stops responding) should I just reinstall?

did you allow pop3 on your gmail account, go to setting -> forwarding and pop [tab]. you'll see configuration about pop3 over there
