Hi and welcomed to JustAnswer.com. My name isXXXXX will assist you with your issues.
Do you use Mail app (the stamp) to read and send emails?
I do on my new computer, but that brings me to my iCloud account
That is the me email account.
Please open Mail
Select Mail on top and select Preferences
Go to Accounts
What do you have on the list (on the left side)?
Gmail and me or mac email?
I have ICloud IMAP, and Gmail Google POP
Do you use iCloud? If not we can remove it
If you use Gmail, then you do not need iCloud
no, that should really be my back-up account
I have it for my retrieval account
So you got your new Mac and trying to setup Gmail?
yes, but my outgoing Mail Server SMTP is offline and I don't know what to do
Do you receive Gmail emails?
only if I go to gmail.com
Looks like it was not setup correct.
Please try this again
Are you still at Mail Preferences?
try what again?
On the left you will see Gmail
Select Gmail and click the - (minus) button
Confirm to remove account
Let me know when you are done.
Please click the + button
Enter your name, Gmail address and password XXXXX setup your Gmail
its asking for a password XXXXX authentication
Please enter your Gmail password
If not working, please enter your Mac password (Mac login password).

I have to start over...
nothing is working, none of my passwords are working.
Please check this
Open a new tab or Safari Window
Thats the problem I've been having. I tried to uncheck key locks, but that

Please go to Gmail.com and log into your email account.
We will need to check couple settings.
Now please go to Settings
Click on the Settings (cog wheel on top right)
Then select Settings
Go to Forwarding and POP/IMAP
Make sure IMAP is ENABLED.
yes, its enable
Then that should work with Mac Mail app.

Well, it doesn't say offline...
Was Gmail setup yet?
not on this computer

Please click Mailbox on top
Select Take all accounts online option.
