I have spent the last twi days trying to get Mail configured for Pop and have succeeded as far as i can tell.  The Account is filled out as ll the "help" indicates including slection of and I did use the option key for continue aand selection of pop.


But, that said, and having done this for three of my accounts .. Click take all accounts online and the gear turns incessantly but finally get the ~ indicating not online or noit connected.


I have checked and rechecked both the gmail  which does receive the emails and the Mail accounts which DO NOT.


I really need to use POP instead of IMAP and have been able to with a cable account and with (yahoo).


I would most sincerely appreciate your help.  I did help several otheres by telling them of the use of the Option keu to gt past the Create and default imap.
