Email box monitor using Gmail account

I've created a virgin Gmail account to use for EBM and am trying to setup the monitor, which keeps failing, claiming "POP3 connection broken in response"
I've stuck to the common values for Gmail and yet cannot get it to work.

Hostname: pop.gmail.com.
POP3 Port: 995.
TLS: ON
POP3 Username: Gmail email address

But I tried all possible other combinations now - the error messages vary, but in essence, nothing has worked so far.


Gmail's "Allow less secure apps" is ON.
POP and IMAP enabled on account.

Any clues?

@nadworks - i think at some point i read somewhere that gmail does not allow remote pop3/smtp connections anymore, but unfortunately i don't have a source at hand to see if that's true or not.
