I didn't read the whole process on the irumors site (link above), but it looked good to me. I'm guessing the problem is on the gmail side; you probably didn't enable POP mail (even if you think you did). It took me two tries to get POP activated at gmail. It seems there was something weird about applying the activation. Try the process again. I followed the help article on gmail.
I haven't successfully set up Yahoo mail with any client, not even my friend's account in his PC's Outlook Express. Good luck with that.

I just successfully set up my Gmail account using these instructions. The steps are a bit all over the place but I notice it asks you to enter googlemail instead of gmail ... don't know the significance of it all but for my email address I used gmail.com and for the server info I used googlemail ....

Notice at the bottom of the links page it says this:

Quote:
* Did you click 'Save Changes' after enabling POP in Google Mail? To ensure that Google Mail can communicate with your mail client, be sure to click 'Save Changes' on the Google Mail 'Mail Settings' page.


The reason it failed for me the 1st time around is I didn't save the changes so check this before creating the new POP Gmail account in Mail.app

Yep, that's what I'm talking about in my previous post: I missed clicking that button on my first time through.
