MW 6 and G-mail

I am using MW 6.5.4 Pro & Win 7. I am able to check my Verizon account, and Hotmail, but G-mail is being ignored. In the account settings I have the user name, the password, the POP3 server address as pop.gmail.com, and "Include this account in default check." But it doesn't. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

David

Have you enabled POP3 in Gmail?

Check https://support.google.com/mail/trouble ... 8960?hl=en

Note that when you delete spam in Gmail it is actually copied to the All Mail folder

Thanks for responding. Yes, I should have added that I looked at the settings in G-mail: pop.gmail.com, POP is enabled, Use SSL, and Port 995. But I can't get it to work.

Can you check the Gmail account separately using the drop down box on the Check Mail icon?

Long-time user with new gmail problem. I changed my gmail password but MW won't accept it. All settings are correct, including the advanced account options. I changed password again to double-check that I'm using the correct password. I keep getting "bad username or password" whether I use F5 or use the dropdown menu to check just gmail. HELP!!!! (W7P and MW 6.5.4)

Is your Gmail account configured exactly as illustrated above - if yes, I'd suggest the following:--
  • typing both - the username and password, manually
  • if the above doesn't work, copy both - the username and password from a text file
  • if neither of the above works - login through your webmail successfully (at least once)
  • if none of the above works - it's time to contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) for connectivity issues
When copying text and/or numericals, it's recommended to use a RTL (right-to-left) cursor selection - I suspect that you've been adding a leading and/or trailing space to the username and/or password . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . inadvertently. :idea:

@marge201 - I think that the above advice is a total overreaction.

Have you tried changing your Gmail password to a simple alphanumeric one, and then tried changing that in MailWasher? If you can get that to work, then there is a character in your new password that is causing problems in MailWasher.

If that is the case, you could use a trial and error approach to find it, or contact MailWasher support via http://support.firetrust.com/ and ask them to help.

Edited your post TrustFire, nothing was meant in a manner to be taken badly, just their own observation.
