I need a little help with Thunderbird/OSX/Gmail.

Specifically, I can't get T-bird to work with Gmail's smtp server. Using these
instructions from gmail for configuring netscape, I've got the outgoing mail server set up using port 587, etc. but keep getting the error:
blah blah can't connect to server %S.
I have deleted the outgoing server accounts, replaced them, and tried other ports as well. I have selected TLS rather than SSL, and have tried SSL as well. Postfix is enabled on my pre-tiger machine, and using localhost doesn't work either. Is this a case of corrupted preferences, or is something else wacky going on?
