you also have to enable pop through the webmail interface. they give you the settings for your account there.

Ok... so here is what you do.

1. log into Gmail and click on Settings in the top right hand corner of the page.
2. go to Forwarding and Pop.
3. Ignore Forwarding and go to POP and tick 'enable pop for all mail'.
4. click on 'Save Changes' at the bottom of the page
5. click on 'Configuration instructions' (in blue)
6. click on Apple Mail and then follow those instructions in your Apple Mail.

Just post your email address, I can send you an invitation to do so (the only way to create a Gmail account)...

Or if you reside in the US (They send you a code by SMS)
