Thunderbird 1.0.7
Server name: pop.gmail.com
port: 995
options checked:
  - 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.
