Default can't configure mail client for postfix server.

hi everyone,
Please help me out, i have tried everything to make it work but on luck.
I have been trying to configure my Thunderbird and Gmail as mail client for Postfix mail server, but its not working. In both case i am using ubuntu.
I have tried each and every thing that is possible,but nothing worked. i used to get error as :-
<b>Server denied POP3 access for the given username and password.</b>
i have double checked the username and password, nothing is wrong with them.

my MAIL log shows:-

Jul 23 05:29:47 mail postfix/smtpd[14331]: warning: 122.167.1.19: hostname ABTS-KK-Dynamic-019.1.167.122.airtelbroadband.in verification failed: Name or service not known
