Curious. The page I was looking at is somewhat ambiguous:

http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=13287&hl=en_GB

It says googlemail, but I changed to gmail. It says STARTTLS, which is 
allegedly sometimes called SSL. Kmail, when I do a 'check what server 
supports', returns SSL.

No matter. I changed to your settings and sending works. It always worked.

I ticked pop in the gmail settings and downloaded my emails. My emails showed 
up, like before. Then I sent myself another one, and we're back at square 1 - 
it won't download. Like before.

When I log in and set the pop settings again, they download, and then the next 
ones I send myself won't until I log in to gmail and reset the pop settings.

Got any more ideas? How come I can receive the first batch after I reset gmail 
to pop, but no further downloads without logging in and setting it all over 
again?

It's like it forgets my setting as soon as I have done a download.
