Also, don't forget to Enable POP from within the Gmail settings. Or IMAP, whichever you are going to use. Also in the Gmail settings there is a link for assistance in setting up several email clients for use with Gmail. Just log into your Gmail web account and click the settings button (a gear or cog looking thing for my Gmail).
