You need to use a different set of ports for the gmx setup.

I have two different accounts on gmail, one personel, and one that my 
college now uses. So, the one identity uses the ports in the 20xxx range and 
the other uses the ones in the 21xxx range. It is the port numbers that need 
to be different, not just the names in the configuration. Also, need to set this 
in the configurations of pegaus to use the correct port for each connection.


[gmailpop]
client=yes
accept = 20995
connect = pop.gmail.com:995

[gmailsmtp]
client=yes
accept = 20465
connect = smtp.gmail.com:465

[gmailimap]
client=yes
accept = 20993
connect = imap.gmail.com:993

[gccpop]
client = yes
accept = 21995
connect = pop.guamcc.edu:995

[gccsmtp]
client = yes
accept = 21465
connect = smtp.guamcc.edu:465

[gccimap]
client = yes
accept = 21993
connect = imap.guamcc.edu:993
