POP mail on SMB 2008 Exchange can't add to gmail

Hello,

I need to allow someone to  mail using the gmail interface.  So I enabled pop/imap and I am able to configure the account using pop in Outlook. However I cannot get gmail to check it as a second account.

The error is "Server returned error: "Connection timed out: There may be a problem with the settings you added. Please contact your other email provider to verify the correct server name and port."

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I am using port 995.

Thanks and best regards,

Sky

Greetings,

I'm sorry but I think I didn't describe the issue properly.  I'm not setting up a gmail account in outlook, I'm setting up a secondary account in gmail to pop an office server running SBS 2008.

Actually after I wrote the question last night I was able to get the pop connection to work.  I think it may have been that I needed to restart the pop service on the exchange server after I updated the cert info and such.  Because after I restarted that service I was able to pop the server from gmail.  

I still haven't been able to make the smtp connection from gmail.  It doesn't give you the ability to modify any of the smtp config settings.  I am able to to configure it in another mail client successfully so I think it may just be a matter of figuring out the settings that gmail is using and then making sure that is ok for the exchange server.

Thank you.

Sky

So you're just trying to setup Outlook for one user to also access and send through Gmail?   Doesn't really go through SBS

set up outlook to use the pop/smtp settings if they are working correctly then you can transfer the settings into gmail
