    Make sure you have all the settings correctly set
    Are you using Outlook Express with your gmail account
    1) you need to set up gmail to accept pop / imap - see settings on gmail site under your email
    2) you need to set outlook express correctly, see the help file on the gmail email for setting up using OE
