Outlook/Firefox/GMail interface

  warthog01 13:51 04 Mar 2005

I'm running Outlook 2002, Mozilla Firefox and have just started dabbling with the GMail beta. I've set up the Email account and when I test the functions in setup, it shows a failure in sending the test Email. I also get an error message which tells me the ISP doesn't recognize my username or password. The kicker is, I am able to send "real" GMails apparently without a problem. The only problem is the (serious) annoyance of getting that error message periodically. Can anyone suggest a fix??

what do u have in ur settings for pop3 and smtp ? Gmail wont use any of ur ISP settings as it is http based (Correct me if I'm wrong - similar to hotmail ?)

Hi Yoda Knight

I'm using the settings GMail provides: pop.gmail.com and smtp.gmail.com

Forgot to mention in original message, I'm running XP Pro as well.

hmmm... I've heard of some ISPs blocking access, maybe check with them ?

All out of ideas here... :(

No, they haven't blocked access--again, I can send/receive Gmail fine--it's just the popup error message I want to get rid of.
