Can Windows Mail pick up my Googlemail e-mails? I have been trying unsuccessfully to set it up on my laptop (Acer Aspire 5720Z, 2Gb RAM, Windows Vista Premium)

Thanks in advance.

I think you can if you use windows Live Mail ( the replacement for Windows Mail) and follow this process. click here

I can get emails on Windows Mail via pop3. I don't use Windows Live Mail, just Windows Mail that comes with Vista. Settings are:

Incoming mail (POP3):
Outgoing mail (SMTP):

Don't tick the "my server requires authentication" tick box.

I might have had to go to the googlemail website and change option/settings there to enable pop3 access - I can't remember.
