Hello LinvingMuse,

Sorry to hear you are having issues setting up POP3 on your gmail. Without knowing what settings you are using it is difficult to tell what the issue is. Be sure you are using the right server. The secure version is a bit different than normal. For the normal version you can use either your domain name ( or the server name ( For the secure version you can only use the secure server version ( Other than that, you need the full email address as the username and the correct password along with the port 465.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
