Gmail problem in Outlook 2010

I can sometimes send to my POP gmail account, but haven't been able to
receive mail from that account at all. Gmail is the only acct. I use
for email, and have had no problems in setting up gmail with its
various settings in OL 2000.

A little context: a few days ago I got a new computer, I installed Win
7, I then installed my old Office Pro 2000 suite including OL 2000.

OL 2000 was generally able to send/receive from my gmail acct., but as
is common, OL 2000 kept having problems so I decided to buy Office Pro
2010.

I uninstalled Office 2000, and installed Office 2010. OL 2010
incorporated my old PST file and all calender, old emails etc., came
in just fine.

In the past I had set up new email accounts in OL 2000 with no
problems, so I tried doing the same in OL 2010 several times,
including letting OL 2010 "do it itself", but nothing I've done works.

So, help!

Thanks

When sending an email to your Gmail acct, do you receive a bounce back message in whatever email client you are using to send to Gmail?

Are you able to send out from your Gmail acct?

You may want to check the incoming server address.

An update. I got things working such that email sends to and receives
from Gmail, but the incoming email is not going my OL 2010 inbox -
it's going someplace unknown, I would guess that my prior install of
OL 2000 is causing the problem, maybe in the registry.

Any ideas?
