      try sending from an address that is not your own. Gmail often tags mail from yourself so that it does not deliver your own messages back to you.

      Get a friend to email you and you should find that it works

      [QUOTE=the_sky_goat;107386]But does the Status section say that POP is enabled? See my screenshot for how my account is set up (and working) I am on a mac, but aside from the colours the screen should look the same.

      hi the_sky_goat
      my status is set up same as yours. it shows pop is enabled. but unless each time i want to check my emails go reset these settings, i cannot download thru windows mail!!! really strange.
      i have a blackberry also, so have tried emailing myself from that - same result, doesn't come thru to windows mail until i reset settings again. the settings only seem to last that 1 time????????? do you have yours set to forward all mail even if its been downloaded or only forward mail after this time? not sure this would make any difference though?
      tony.

      You're quite right that works.

      Re: windows mail issues with sky??

      I have it POP enabled for all mail.

      Well, I am running out of ideas!

      The things that I know googlemail does not like:

      Checking POP using more than one device - i.e. If you have POP enabled and try to download to two computers (or email devices) then it throws a wobbly and stops downloading to either.

      Sending mail to yourself (already covered).

      Well, I guess they assume you don't want a copy of the mail you just sent - which kinda makes sense - unless you're testing your email setup!

      Glad it's all sorted!
