Connecting to GMail

I recently installed TB portable on a USB drive. I set it up to connect to a GMail account. When I start TB portable, it tries to connect to, but the connection always times out. When I use the normal versin of TB installed on my laptop, it connects to GMail without problem. How can I make the connection smoothly with TB portable?

I set up an account yesterday following their instructions - works like a charm.
