P.S. - make sure you do the first bit (modifying your gmail acct) first.

I checked my settings and they are same as onthelimit1's link (using Outlook Express and I'm with Talktalk) and mine works perfectly.

In 'General' put your fulf email address-- You can change it after by using properties.

In 'Servers' use pop.gmail and smtp.gmail-- Click my server requires authorisation (pop3 does not work)

In ' Connection' - If you are using an always on connection, tick box and apply

In 'Security' leave alone

In Advanced. SMTP= 25 POP=995- Tick top 2 boxes.

Be sure to enable pop in Google mail.

Terry Brown most of that's not right, No offence meant but where did you get those silly settings from? as I said in my post my settings are as per onthelimit1's link and I'm using POP3

I use gmail and I do not recognise Terry Brown's settings. There's some missing ".com"s and I don't have those advanced settings either.
