Outlook and POP 3 (Gmail Problem)

  Tricky 3003 15:24 01 Nov 2005

I test the account settings in the Email Account wizard in Outlook 2003 but then when I go to send something it says the incoming server has failed and i need to contact the ISP.

All tests clear in account settings...could it be a firewall? Or something I have done wrong?

Nope, tried everything that GMAIL specify....will not work on any of my mail clients eg thunderbird as well..

It still says there is a incoming server problem? Ideas?

Had similar problem and it was the Firewall. I had norton and disabling it [right click on notification area icon is quickest] allowed mail through. If it is that you will have to reset the firewall settings
