    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:-
