    Yesterday, I encountered at least three Gmail POP + Apple Mail + Zpdee users who were encountering problems downloading mail for the past two to three days. It's as if Mail can't get through to Gmail POP access. Of course, the Taiwan quake could be the culprit, but I find it odd that this is happening only now.

    I have no problems on my end. Is there anyone else having difficulty with Gmail POP?

    I was having problems with Gmail POP 2 weeks ago, nothing would come in. Then last week it just started working again.

    Yup, encountered a problem downloading my mail from the gmail server the past 3 or 4 days. I thought I turned off pop services in gmail settings, so I re-saved my settings, but still didn't get my mails through Mail. Suddenly, it just started working. I also use PLDT DSL. Hmmmm. I wonder what the problem was...

    I've been experiencing this problem for the past weeks and until now as I type this.. here in my office in QC. However, when I'm at home in Pasig.. I don't encounter this problem. I use Gmail Pop + Mail + PLDT DSL.. My connection here sa office is suppose to be faster.. coz I'm only on Plan 999 at home.. I assume.. its with the connection.. :(

    Experienced the same problem last week. I had problems downloading my mail. Thankfully, it's back to normal now. I'm using Gmail Pop, Mail.app & PLDT DSL.
