gmail in OE using POP3
#1
Hi!  I'm a devoted user of runasxp's version of OE which works brilliantly for most of my email accounts, including gmail using IMAP as the incoming mail server.  My main computer runs Windows 7 Professional.  However, I've tried to add my gmail account on another computer running Windows XP using POP3 for the incoming mail server.  To the best of my knowledge I have configured it correctly - pop.gmail.com as the incoming server, smtp.gmail.com as the outgoing mail server,"Remember password" box ticked and "My server requires authentification" box ticked, outgoing mail port 465, incoming mail port 993, "This server requres a secure connection (SSL)" boxes both ticked.   OE shows the account as added.  However, when I try to send or receive messages from or to the account it repeatedly comes up with a "Logon _pop.gmailcom box" asking me to enter my user name and password in appropriate boxes.  Yet both these boxes appear ready filled in (and correctly).  I duly press "Enter", but the Logon box immediately reappears, requiring me to enter my details again.  And so on ad infinitem.   How do I get it to accept my details, and will the same thing happen if I try to reconfigure my gmail account in the Windows 7 computer using POP3?
