Unable to access gmail through thunderbird

  CruelSinger 11:16 01 May 2006

I’m using mozilla thunderbird as my email client. Following gmails instructions on how to set up your gmail account through thunderbird, I typed in all the server names and ports and selected SSL and all that as they said. I am running the internet through a proxy so I have set up the proxy in thunderbird correctly as well. When I attempt to ‘Get Mail,’ a small message comes up saying “Failed to connect to server pop.gmail.com” Before that it does say looking up pop.gmail.com down the bottom.
What could possibly be wrong? I have also turned on POP in gmail settings as well.
If you have any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.
