    I have looked on here and tried every thing but nothing has worked. My school uses google as its host but it is a username@school.edu address. If anybody knows what server information to enter I would appreciate.

    Also my school has this information and I have tried it all but it still doesn't work. I think it could be what I should enter in the user name field. I have been just putting the whole email address there.

    [SIZE=-1]IMAP Server/[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]Incoming Mail/[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]imap.gmail.com/[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]993/[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]SSL[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]

    / [SIZE=-1]Outgoing Mail[/SIZE]/ [SIZE=-1]smtp.gmail.com (All other e-mail clients)[/SIZE]/ [SIZE=-1]587[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]/TLS[/SIZE]

    Thanks in advance

    you might have to log into your gmail account on your computer and allow POP or IMAP mail to be forwarded to the account

    yeah, I had problems with this as well. Make sure your info looks like this:

    incoming:
    -username = full email address
    -password = your password
    -image server = imap.gmail.com
    -port = 993
    -ssl

    Outgoing:
    - smtp.gmail.com
    -port= 465
    -ssl

    Now, thats what you need to have in the fields for it to be setup properly. Because my school was changing around gmail accounts, this didn't initially work for me. The reason being I had to do some sync'ing my password with the rest of the school stuff, and it needed me to temporarily change it. So try it, and see what happens.

    Yep, something on the server side then. Go to your school computer, and change your password. Don't worry, you can most likely do this again to get it back to what it was before.

    Where are you located if your willing to share?

    I changed my email password but it still doesn't work. I am Oakland university

    Could it be that the IMAP location is different than [SIZE=-1][SIZE=-1]imap.gmail.com?[/SIZE][/SIZE]

    might not be what you're looking for, but I had my school gmail forwarded to my personal gmail account. I have no problems receiving forwarded email and responding from the school.edu address it was sent to.

    no, the imap has to be that address. Guess you can go to the helpdesk and see if they can offer any assistance. I had to do that in the end as I hadn't thought about changing my password.

    I got it to work after some messing around. I went on my schools website and found a link for [SIZE=-1][SIZE=-1]IMAP/POP Synchronization. I signed in and it automatically synced up. Then I filled out the information as stated earlier in the post and it worked :icon_ banana:

    see if your school has a tutorial on how to set up outlook, and use those exact settings.

    My school also uses google based email. At first I was not able to get it to work, but then I realized that you have to put it as name@email.school.edu I hope this helps. It works on my droid and on my mac with it in this format.

    Usually schools have info on their website to set up email on Android and iPhoneOS. But I just went to my school's academic computing office and they set it up for me for free in five minutes.
