Enabling Post Office Protocol or Internet Message Access Protocol

There is no doubt that gmail website would be the best place for searching the solution.
I summarize how I handled this problem (ofcourse using gmail help) in following steps:

1.Click “Settings” on the top right corner of your gmail account's homepage
2.Select the Tab “Forwarding and POP/IMAP “
3.There exists two different possibilities two choose : "POP"and "IMAP"(I clicked on the “learn more” of IMAP and found out that gmail has recommended it so I enabled IMAP).
4. Configure your outlook easily without being bothered with the Error prompt this time;)

I recently had the same problem and found really fancy plugin:


The plugin can be installed like so:

First, ensure that you’re running at least RubyGems 1.2 (check gem -v if you’re not sure).

The will_paginate gem is built by GitHub. Add GitHub to your gem sources (once per machine):

gem sources -a

Install the library:

gem install mislav-will_paginate

To enable the library your Rails 2.0.x (or even 1.2.x) project, load it in “config/environment.rb” do |config|

require "will_paginate"
