server settings for gmail in W.E's 2012

have been trying to syncronize my gmail in Windows essentials 2012.
I had for outgoing mail smtp.gmail.com, for incoming mail pop.gmail.com, checked the authentication box. I double checked my log on on gmail with user name and password. Yet I still get "can not connect to server"
I did check mark the imap box in the gmail account.

I changed as directed, but the pop port did not change to 465 and stayed at 25. Be;ow the error message:
Unable to send or receive messages for the Gmail (dollbarbie344) account. The connection to the server has failed.
Server: 'googlemail.com'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0E

I told you what mine was, it should work. If you cannot get it to work, give us a screen shot of the entire setup. I will let you know how yours differs from mine.
