Server name: pop.gmail.com
- use SSL
- check for messages at startup
- check for new messages every 10 minutes
- automatically download new messages
All other options are unchecked.
That account gets very low traffic rates. This account I read through
the web interface. Just so you know.
As another data point, I just talked to a friend who's also having
issues with Gmail's POP access. With three unread messages, the
server was reporting only one. In his case, it seems to be related to
a message with an attachment. If you can clear out anything "odd" by
using the web interface, that might help things.
