Hi,

I am having problems when trying to access my gmail account via Thunderbird.

I have triple checked everything possible, but I get the following error message:

'failed to connect to server pop3.gmail.com'

I have been to my gmail account and enabled the POP3 access.

Could you help me?

There is no such server as pop3.gmail.com.

Change it to pop.gmail.com instead, it should now work.
