Windows 7: POP3 in Thunderbird

POP3 in Thunderbird

Hi Folks,
I have been experimenting with Thunderbird Portable (latest version just released) using Gmail with IMAP. To say the least, I don't like IMAP and never will.
My image shows the TB account settings using IMAP, do you know the settings if using POP3. I posted this on FF Forums but no reply so far.

Hi, @Roderunner:

Try the settings in my screen cap.
NOTES:
  • This is the full version, not portable
  • Win7 Pro/64-bit
  • My settings are configured the way they are because I use a spam-filtering program (Mailwasher Pro) between the ISP servers and Tbird; however, this probably won't impact the basic setup.
  • You may also have to adjust the gmail settings from the gmail web interface, to be sure POP is enabled, etc.
Let us know if this helps,
MM
