problem with setting up gmail account/mail

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Mail' started by John Dunsmiur, Jul 7, 2009.

  1. The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'Windows Mail', Server:
    'pop.gmail.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error:
    10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

    I get this message after trying to set up with my gmail account....I am not
    sure if I am putting the wrong numbers or name on my account for mail.

  3. Gmail doesn't use port 110. Please use the settings specified for Gmail:
