    Gmail SMTP not working....

    I'm trying to get my gmail account set up in thunderbird and i have the pop set up and working, but i can't send any messages. when i send mail, it connects to smtp.gmail.com and asks for the password, but when i punch it in it just asks for the pw again and again and again. i've gotten gmail to work for another email address, but for some reason this one won't work. here are my settings:brbrsmtp.gmail.combrport 465 SSLbrusername@gmail.combrbrnot sure what the problem could be as this is the current settings i use on my other gmail account. any ideas? thanks.br

    port 465 SSL
    [email]username@gmail.com[/url]

    not sure what the problem could be as this is the current settings i use on my other gmail account. any ideas? thanks.
