Gmail in Leopard+

Making sure Gmail is working properly

With your browser of choice, login to mail.google.com—mail to make sure your Gmail account

works.

There may be one or two little "gear" icons in the upper-right part of the webpage. The lower one

should be labeled "Settings" when you hover your pointer over it. Click it and select "Settings" from

the popup menu. A new page will load.

Click the tab "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" near the top-center of the page.

In the "POP Download:" area, make sure POP is enabled.

For later versions of Mac OS X, you may wish to enable IMAP, but for Leopard. keep it disabled foe now.

Quit your browser.

Launch Mail.app

Under Mail>Preferences…>Accounts delete your Gmail account. Quit/Relaunch Mail.app.

If you have no other email accounts in Mail, you should be presented with the Add Account pane.

Otherwise go back to Mail>Preferences…> Accounts and click the "+" button at the bottom of the

Accounts column.

As soon as you enter your Gmail address, Mail knows how to set the account up. Enter your Gmail

password

Sending pictures

In Mail.app, look under Edit>Attachments and ensure that "Always Send Windows-Friendly

Attachments" is checked.

When you create a new message, you should be able to drag pictures into the message area.

If you have several attachments, you might be better off Zip'ing them together, and then drag the Zip file to the message area.
