Smile Getting Mozilla email account to work

Hi .
I've just installed FC 2 and am trying to set up my Mozilla mail by POP and SMTP through a Google gmail account.

I followed the guide set out by the google help link but whenever I open my new account in mozilla I get

"Folder is being processed. Please wait until processing is complete to get messages"

"Processing", whatever that means, hasn't completed in 24 hrs....

It isn't a firewall problem 'cos I tried it with the firewall disabled.

Does anyone know what this means?

You also have to enable pop mail within your gmail account itself.

Yep, I did that originally.

Any other ideas?

Thanks

I have been trying to do this myself without any success...I do have it enable with gmail and I followed their directions to the letter...Thunderbird just clocks for hours...

could it be a firewall problem?

No its not a firewall problem. I have the same results with the firewall entirely disabled.

I'll let you know if i finally get any feedback from gmail though.........

hello sailorsgh

I have a solved my mozilla worries by using Thunderbird instead and it is working perfectly (having followed the setup instructions on gmail). If you do use it just know that the tar file installs a bit funny:

I downloaded to /usr/src

then cd /usr/src

tar zxvf thunderbird*

then cd thunderbird

./thunderbird

will launch. no ./configure no make no install or any of that. Maybe this is a better option for you if still having trouble.
