I've been using MacMail for years without a problem. Recently a little exclamation point came up with an error message indicating that the server couldn't connect with the 993 port for my Gmail account. After trying to update my software, restart the program, etc etc I deleted the account, thinking I'd just recreate a MacMail connection to my Gmail account. Not I'm receiving an error message that the server is not responding, and I can not set up a MacMail account linked to my Gmail.


I've seen lots of people with this problem, but no sufficient answers to correct it. I am not using a portable device, I am using my iMac to try to make this happen.


Please help! Any incite is much appreciated.

Thank you.


MacMail, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
