    Yet another gmail problem

    I picked up a motorola Q last night and so far I have to say I love the phone. However I'm getting very frustrated with gmail setup. When I first setup the account and send/receive it downloads emails from when I first got my gmail account back in '04. A few of these emails appear in outlook for a bit but then disappear. I was able to send one email to myself and have it appear on the gmail website but nothing since. I also can't receive any new emails.

    I followed the forum on this site:

    In gmail I have the following setup:
    1. Status: POP is enabled for all mail that has arrived since 8/15/04

    On the Q I have the following setup:

    User name: username@gmail.com
    Password: password
    Domain: Blank
    Save Password: Checked

    Server Type: POP3
    Account Name: Gmail
    Network: The internet

    Incoming Server: pop.gmail.com:995
    Require SSL: unchecked
    Outgoing SErver: smpt.gmail.com:465
    Outgoing server requires: checked

    Download the following messages:
    Todays Messages
    First 500 bytes

    Any help would be really appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    Try adding Domain to read: gmail.com

    See if that helps you any, I wonder if your Q can't resolve gmail.com properly and that is causing the issue.

    I think I figured it out. It was rather simple in the end. I had to disable POP in the gmail settings. And then reenable it for all future emails. Odd. I hope it doesn't mess up my POP forwarding on my home computer.
