    are they the same thing? because i've got a @googlemail.com account, but not a @gmail.com account....

    i'm wondering because I want to set my mail.app up... if it's not the same, does anyone know how to set it up - IMAP/POP etc? all the settings i have to know?

    googlemail and gmail are identical. gmail had been renamed to googlemail in the UK, though it is still gmail for the rest of the world. Other than UK and non-UK, there are no other differences. ^_^

    Wrong! Same for Germany!

    But you can use email.address@gmail.com also instead of ...@googlemail.com! Goes into the same account.

    My apologies, I meant certain countries. Regardless, now that we know that it is exactly the same as gmail, it is safe to lock the topic.

    Sheesh! a bit harsh are we, but good to know that the two are interchangable.
