Google has its own mail server. If you decide to create an email address with Google, your mail will be managed there. You can access thru the gmail web site for mail, or use an app (Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.) to view your mail
If you are wanting to access Gmail with an email client such as Outlook or Thunderbird. Use the link below. The port is going to depend on which method you want to connect with. I would highly suggest using IMAP as all your email remains on the Gmail server and simplifies life when managing your account.
The Gmail Webmail interface does not allow users to download or copy emails as individual files using a browser, but you can achieve this by downloading your emails to an email client such as Outlook or Thunderbird. An email client can be setup to view all of your e-mails when configured with IMAP settings so you can then copy individual messages to a folder or thumbdrive. I'd recommend Thunderbird as it is free and works easily for want you want to do. http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/
Are you using Gmail web mail or are you using maybe Thunderbird email client to access your Gmail account? They have application-specific passwords.
Google search: gmail password separate from google password
Try using an offline email tool like Thunderbird and configure it to send/receive email from somewhere like Gmail. That way you can keep all of your contacts on your local computer in case you have to send them Christmas cards.
Step 1. Go to the Gmail web interface and click the Settings
link at the top right corner of the page. Look for the "Forwarding and
POP/IMAP" tab and click the link.
Step 2. Now you need to enable either POP or IMAP. For
most people, POP will work just fine and it's the simpler of the two.
Just select the "Enable POP for all mail" option. You'll also notice
that you can control what Gmail does when your desktop client connects
under the "When messages are accessed with POP" setting. Choose "keep
Gmail's copy in the Inbox" since we're just using POP for backup
Step 3. Now startup Thunderbird, enter your username (the
bit before @gmail.com in your e-mail address) and Google password.
Thunderbird will begin downloading your e-mail, creating a local backup.
There's no need to mess with Thunderbird's settings or since you're
just doing this for backup purposes.
Billy Reeves is my name. The first thing to do is reboot. Log into Thunderbird. (Thunderbird will download your email to your hard drive. Thunderbird receives this data from the Internet Service Provider that you pay for monthly, or yearly.
Now login into your gmail account.
Make sure that account is functioning correctly.
You can have your gmail forwarded to your thunderbird account by choosing settings in gmail.
Google offers a wealth of info right on their site.
Import contacts to gmail or export contacts to Thunderbird.
