I am running fedora core 5
I downloaded thunderbird 188.8.131.52
I want to connect to gmail.
I followed the instructions on this page
Also configured the proxy settings in edit, preferences
but as soon as i open my inbox a error
pops out "failed to connect to server pop.gmail.com"
i've searched for similar threads but they are for thunderbird 1.5
and also none of them had this problem.
i get the feeling that the proxy server in between can be problem
because as soon as i open thunderbird the pop up appears.
