I have 2 GMail accts...I set them up with Apple Mail and can't figure out why they won't go online automatically... I get the following error all the time...

2 accounts have connection failures. Click on the indicator next to each individual account for more detail.

I have to click "go online" everytime...the account is enabled in prefs...

On your toolbar, go to Mailbox > Online Status. There you can check and change the online status for each account individually. I suspect your Gmail accounts are set to offline and will continue to be even though you state work online unless you change this.

Hope this helps!

You also have to remember to set your POP settings in Gmail and save them

check this as well. It threw me once.

Thanks, thejst and singingcrow! Also had to change the port on the outgoing server.

Cheers,
