Hi all, I have been using the mail app on os X for months now to check my gmail acct using pop. It has been working flawlessly for months. Now all of a sudden it wont check my gmail. I didnt do anything in my keychain, or manipulatye my acct settings in any way whatsoever. Yet, everytime I try to have mail check it, I get an error message and it says "The server error encountered was: The connection to the server “” on port 110 timed out" I tried reprogamming mymail acct but to no avail. I am at a loss as to how to fix this. Anyone else having this problem? or better yet anyone know how to fix it?

Tried changing port. I tried port 587, and every other port number that I can find online. It was my understanding that the port only affected outgoing mail. I cant send or recieve mail. I am using mail to access another one of my mail accts and it works without a problem. This is driving me crazy.
QUOTE Thanks
