Help setting up POP on googlemail
Im trying to set up microsoft mail to pick up my emails from my googlemail
account. I've added the account on microsoft mail but it wouldnt download
the info, it seems i need to change the setting on my mail account.

I acceesed setting on my gmail account to enable POP but it wants me to put
an email address in to forward incoming mail too. This is what has confused
me as i dont have a microsoft mail address. Do i need a MM address? If so
how do i get one? When i first used mail it never prompted me to make one.

Re: Help setting up POP on googlemail

When you setup your account, make sure to check off "this account
requires a secure connection" and "this account requires authentication"
in account properties, and set up your ports to 465 (outgoing) and 995
(incoming) ... that's basically all there is to it.
