    i sent an email to an acquiantance this morning and mail worked just fine, it was able to send the email. however, when i tried to retrieve my emails from my gmail POP account mail informed me that there was a connection failure and that my username and passwords were unrecognized. i checked if my username and password are correct and they were. i then deleted my POP account in mail and made a new one, again making sure that the password, username, and all things that have to be entered were correct and still i have the same result, a connection failure. attached is the pop up window that comes out when i try retrieving my mails. what should i do?

    hope u could help me out. thanks!

    You need to append @gmail.com to your user name.
