I am in Costa Rica and I am able to send msgs from gmail using port 587, with SSL and ESMTP checked.

However I am not able to receive any msgs at all with port 995 and SSL checked or with any other combination I have tried so far. I enabled POP on my gmail account.

Yahoo works just fine.

Does it have sth to do with the local Internet provider (ICE)? or is that irrelevant. Any ideas?

Thank you.
