  6. Type in the email address you want connected to Gmail, and click Next Step.
  7. Type in the email address (in full) as the username, e.g. Username: example@example.com
  8. Type in the password for the email address.
  9. Type in mail.bravehost.com for the POP Server hostname.
  10. Select port 995 from the dropdown.
  11. Check the Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail. option, so the email uses SSL with port 995 (the correct settings).
  12. You may, optionally, check the Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server if you want emails to also reflect in the webmail interface at http://webmail.bravehost.com/.

If you are editing the settings for an account that is already added into you Gmail account, then you would click the edit info button instead of Add a POP3 mail account you own, on step #5.
