This will do it for you.

http://mail.google.com/support/bin/a...y?answer=13275

After that there is a URL at the bottom that tells you how to configure the Gmail end for POP.

Hope you enjoy your MacBook!

Feels like we've had a sudden wave of new MacBook owners over the past 2 days. Which model did you get?

Yea, it's very friendly and non volatile compared to other sites.
One tip though: If you make a post and then make another post right after it before anyone else responds its called Double Posting. It's considered sort of rude and annoying on internet forums so try to avoid it next time.
