Again, go ahead and read back the last few posts. The issue rests within the GMail actual application which cannot connect to the server. If the GMail application can't pull the mail from the pop account, the phone never even enters into the equation.Its a PHONE/Android software problem. The same **** works well on other phones i have used including blackberry. Head over to the android code link in my sig and read responses. Also do searches for other email issues.
