Configure GMail in Evolution, Thunderbird or KMail
Many of us would like to use our GMail accounts in Evolution, and to a lesser degree Thunderbird and KMail. Here is a step by step guide on how to configure Evolution, Thunderbird and KMail to access you GMail account.
The first step is to log in to your GMail account and to click on Settings and click on the Forwarding and POP tab. Under POP Download select Enable POP for all mail and click Save Changes.
Log out of GMail and go to your UBUNTU or Linux install.
If you have not used Evolution before, or haven’t set up an account the New Account Wizard will launch. Click Forward.
