Get some bulky material via gmail. Use pop for that download and it works
since I started using gmail. (4 to 5 years)
Today I have some 20 emails in my gmail account but if I want to download
them, I get following information:
Could not connect to host Unknown error.

Do you use pop to download from gmail, do you have problems? Or is it
just me ;(

Why in gods name are you using Pop with Gmail?

Use port 993 ssl for mail access
and port 465 ssl for sending via gmail.

These work with every client I've ever tried.

Thanks for this tip, I have been using POP up to now. However, following the
settings you give above, I can't get KMail to send to gmail (I actually have a
googlemail account, but it's the same thing). My password doesn't seem to
stick in the sending dialog, even though I've ticked the 'remember' box.

Matters might be complicated by the fact that I have two sending transports
set up, the default goes by SMTP to my ISP, and googlemail goes to gmail.

Any advice, please?
