      POP settings in Mail

      I have been battling to switch to POP from the default IMAP settings with varying degrees of luck.

      I succeeded in setting up my default account this morning but when I tried to replicate the settings with another account Mail couldnt access the account. The screen capture with the Blue lines over it is the successful account while the Red is the unsuccessful one, and before someone points out that I am using a Google smtp setting, I know and it is deliberate. I just couldnt get anywhere with " smtp.tools.sky.com ".

      Has anyone else had difficulty with POP settings? I like POP which is why I'm trying to set it up.

      I have set the outgoing port to 995 instead of 993 and for the moment the second account is working with POP.
