Gmail to live Mail

Hi, currently using OE6 and can redirect my Gmail to OE no problem using pop3. however I am trying to get used to using Windows Live Mail. How do I get Live Mail to access my Gmail account using pop3? I can only seem to find instructions that say you have to use Imap. Am still on WinXp

Thanks T I M B O but that's exactly what i mean. that's using IMAP. i want to see it up using POP3.
When I installed Live Mail it automatically found my Gmail account and imorted all the settings and all the messages that were in the inbox but now it's not receiving any new mail.

In gmail, go to settings

accounts & imports

add POP3 email account, click the learn more button, i hope that helps

Settings in Windows Live Mail are just the same as in Outlook Express. Go to Tools - Accounts - Add - Email account and copy your settings from OE.

Okay, i got it sorted, not sure how but it's something to do with the tools/accounts/properties/advanced settings being slightly different in Live Mail than they are in OE. There is an extra field. something about 'login as ...' Anyway I don't quite know what I did but at least it's working now so I'll leave well alone. Thanks.
