I've been having a lot of trouble accessing my email from gmail to my seamonkey email client. It's been going on for a while.

I was told that changing the settings from POP to IMAP could be the solution. How do I do that and save all my messages, folders, address book, etc.? I'm not a techie so will need lots of step-by-step directions - with pictures if possible.

Thanks.

You don't need to switch POP to IMAP account but you must change setting on Gmail to make it work with e.g. SeaMonkey Mail:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3024008

I've done all of that many times and it still wouldn't work. The only thing I discovered is that possibly the emails were being forwarded to another email account I had. Mozilla's forums suggested I check for filtered emails as the possible cause of the problem. I did and found y old email address that ws supposedly having my emails from gmail sent to it. So I deleted it.

Nothing to do now but wait and see. I'll let you know.

I just checked gmail and have two messages there that won't go to my seamonkey email client even if I click "get messages" repeatedly.
Now what?
