Should work OK under Vista, mine certainly is and a lot of others, so this
is not a Win Mail problem. There is a very clear write up with screen shots
on the G-Mail page (I am sure you have been there).
Assume you have NOT got a tick under LOG ON USING SECURE PASSWORD
AUTHENTICATION at the SERVERS Tab and that you DO have a tick in the MY
SERVER REQUIRES AUTHENTICATION in the same screen? On that last one, the
settings are just to "use the same as your Incoming Mail".
Under the ADVANCED Tab 465 and 995 for the ports with ticks in the SECURE
Finally at the G-Mail page you have to activate that you are using POP3.
And of course what ever Firewall you are using is not blocking those ports??
