    I see a lot of frustrated Windows Mail users with problems similar to mine.
    I just got a new Toshiba laptop and set up a new email account in Windows
    Mail but have been unable to receive any emails from my server. The
    connection seems to get made, but then times out with this message:

    Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for
    this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of
    inactivity. Account: 'pop.gmail.com', Server: 'pop.gmail.com', Protocol:
    POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10053, Error Number:

    For Gmail you need to turn on POP or IMAP access and then set up the
    servers for SSL on ports 995 (incoming) and 465 (outgoing). This link
    should get you the Windows mail set up instructions:


    If the link doesn't work for some reason, log into the Gmail webmail
    interface and then click on the Settings link and you will see the
    configuration links for whichever method you want for
    sending/receiving mail through Gmail.

    Most new Toshiba computers come with a program called SMS Desktop
    already installed, even though this program causes programs in Windows
    Mail. Uninstall it if you have it.

    After following Lumpy Cat's advice and reconfiguring my client account to
    use an SSL connection on port 995 for incoming mail, I get the following

    Account: 'Gmail', Server: 'pop.gmail.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response:
    '-ERR not supported v25pf26187wah.0', Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Server
    Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC18

    Now what?

  5. Go to Tools, Accounts, select that mail account, Properties,
    Servers. Uncheck the box for "Log on using Secure Password
    Authentication." Gmail (like most providers) doesn't support
    that option.

    You did turn on the POP access via the Gmail webmail site first and
    save correct? Is an easy to overlook item. Also make sure you don't
    have Log on using Secure Password Authentication set for use with the
    account settings on the Servers tab in Windows Mail.
