      Cannot Access Secure sites ie: GMail

      Is there a definitive way of geting access to GMail as i have been told/read many different things

      I can log on to pretty much any other site, however it seems that secure servers (ie Gmail) wont let me on as the auth seems to be looping when i try and connect.

      If someone could break down an easy way to get access that would be great - apologies if this has been covered elsewhere, but i cant seem to find a definitive answer and its the only thing stopping me from being 100% happy with my fancy new Sky Wireless Broadband.

      Any help greatly appreciated

      Thanks

      Pete

      I can connect to to gmail (https/pop/smtp) without difficulty so I'm wondering what happens when you try. If you can explain a bit more what goes wrong I'm sure someone will be able to assist.

      Re: Cannot Access Secure sites ie: GMail

      fixed it - it was an issue with the supplied Mcafee software, so ive had to allow cookies from Gmail and Google to allow me to access the mail box

      All sorted now
