I’m not able to configure my Thunderbird to download my mail in GMail. I use a proxy to access the internet from my institute. It doesn’t ask me for any kind of authentication when I try to connect to the pop server. Any ideas?

      Hi Sreeram, the the instructions given in the above link and let us know how it goes.If your server doesn't require any authentication I don't see why it shouldn't work.
