GMail POP3 Error

About a fortnight ago my GMail account started giving me weird errors when I tried to login via POP3; the error I was receiving was something similar to "-ERR [SYS/TEMP] Proxying required. {XDH}".

After searching for a little while to find a solution to this, I found this whirlpool thread. Turns out that Google quitely upgraded a bunch of users to the new BETA, which has lousy POP3 support. The fix suggested there is to login to your account and then put "" into your URL bar. Problem is that doesn't work on hosted accounts like mine; fortunately it's only a small change required. The changed URL should be ""; replacing YOURURL with whatever is needed for your account (for me it was "")

PS. Yes, I did notice that I missed a week; I'll have to try to be more consistent. :-(
