Thunderbird problem accessing Gmail account

I have just installed Thunderbird to access Gmail for my emails. When I 'Getmail' my emails in T'bird it doesn't find any but if I go to Gmail website they are in my inbox. I can then forward them to myself (gmail address) and Thunderbird reads them ok. It doesn't make sense. Any suggestions?

Have you checked to make sure that IMAP is enabled on your GMail account?

Take a look at this for more help

Thanks. I'll check it out. I set the accounts up as POP not IMAP. I had always used POP before and assumed that it would be OK.
