Default Help with Gmail POP3

I've been using gmail pop3 for almost 2 years now with gmail and incredimail. I had to manually configure it. ffor the past 30 days or so it just work. I tried different settings, computers, etc

is anybody having problem with gmail pop3? I'm having gmail forward the email to my msn account so I can still retrieve it with incredimail.

I figure out the problem. gmail and incredimail won't work together on my ip address expect on my computer. I had this problem with 1 aol account too, so incredimail is behind this.


I have reinstall windows on a few people computer. then I'll set up incredimail and gmail back up on their computer.

I'll then get a connect to server has failed. then I go next door and use their same RR internet and the connections will go through.

go figure
