    I tried using the Simple Mail extension (Firefox) to access my Gmail via IMAP but it didnt work. It doesnt seem like Opera connects either. I made sure to get the right settings and my password is correct too. The author (of Simple Mail) thinks maybe it could be my provider.

    Could it really be caused by my provider? What other explanation can there be?

    Do you use port 465 with SSL enabled?

    465 would be for the smtp server. Im more concerned about receiving my email.

    Oops, IMAP would be port 993 over SSL.
