    Now i need some more Gmail/Outlook help

    alright so i have a Gmail account. now how do i get an invite code? The reason is that when i started my account i used a name i didn't like, so i want to start a new one and have that as my main email now. I have had my hotmail account for a long time and i'm tired of all the spam i get in it, plus the Senate_9427 is fucking old, stupid kid shit.

    I can't find anywhere in my account settings to get an invite code. help.

    I used the Google help center info to set up Outlook. When i set up the new account in Outlook, i did everything, but when i was testing the settings it failed to log onto the incoming mail server. it keeps asking for a username and password but my info for gmail wont work

    e-mail: User@gmail.com
    account name: user
    outgoing requires auth. but not secure auth
    incoming server: pop.gmail.com port: 995
    outgoing server: smtp.gmail.com port: 465
    BOTH SERVERS require SSL.

    yea, i know about thunderbird, but never really looked at it much. Is it pretty much the same thing?

    i'm getting it now. i'm tired of this microsoft bullshit not working.

    Ha, i figured out what it was. i didn't enable POP in Gmail. Thunderbird figured that one out, so i did it.
