How can i access Gmail with a pop3 client like Outlook?

Open Outlook or Outlook Express.

Click ‘Add,’ and then click ‘Mail…’

Enter your name in the ‘Display name:’ field, and click ‘Next.’
Enter your full Gmail email address (username@gmail.com) in the ‘Email address:’ field, and click ‘Next.’
Enter ‘pop.gmail.com’ in the ‘Incoming mail (POP3, IMAP or HTTP) server:’ field. Enter ‘smtp.gmail.com’ in the ‘Outgoing mail (SMTP) server:’ field.
Click ‘Next.’

Enter your Gmail username (including ‘@gmail.com’) in the ‘Account name:’ field. Enter your Gmail password in the ‘Password:’ field, and click ‘Next.’
Click ‘Finish.’

Highlight ‘pop.gmail.com’ under ‘Account,’ and click ‘Properties.’
Click the ‘Advanced’ tab.
Check the box next to ‘This server requires a secure connection (SSL)’ under ‘Outgoing Mail (SMTP).’
Enter ‘465’ in the ‘Outgoing mail (SMTP):’ field.
Check the box next to ‘This server requires a secure connection (SSL)’ under ‘Incoming mail (POP3).’ The port will change to 995.
*The order of ‘Outgoing’ and ‘Incoming’ mail server fields varies by version. Make sure you enter the correct information in each field.

Click the ‘Servers’ tab, and check the box next to ‘My server requires authentication.’

  • I am using Incredimail to gather various e-mails. Recently put Gmail on my XPPro SP2 computer. Can’t access pop.gmail.com and have tried every which way

  • i cant configure

  • Make sure you have SP1 for outlook before trying this. As there is POP3 over SSL bug with the base installation.
