How do I configure Acer One to download gmail?

  bengreenslade 13:23 12 Nov 2008

I have an Acer Aspire One. I also have a googlemail account. Now what I want to do is set up the google mail on the Acer so that I open the Email software and have the emails downloaded onto the computer, like outlook express etc Saving me going on the website all the time etc.
Now I have tried the software that is preinstalled on the Acer, but that does not seem to work, always say error setting up
Can anyone tell me how I can get it to work?

Go into Googlemail, click settings, enable Pop then look at the Configuration Instructions for your particular email client (Link is on the same page). Googlemail currently provide configuration instructions for these email clients:

Apple Mail 3.0
Outlook Express
Outlook 2002
Outlook 2003
Outlook 2007
Thunderbird 2.0
Windows Mail
