    Default Cant acess gmail from my touch
    Hi!

    I purchased a Ipod Touch yesterday. (Had an iphone last year) and now im trying to get my gmail account working. But i get an error when trying to access the mail. I dont know what the english error-codes are as i live in sweden.

    But its somethin like "The connection to the server "imap.gmail.com" failed.

    What am i doing wrong?

    i write my name as account-name.
    My emailadress
    Password
    description

    Under advanced the following settings are set.

    Incomming

    No SSL
    Autentication password
    Prefix for imap imap.gmail.com
    serverport 698

    Outgoing

    No SSL
    autentication password
    server-port 587

    When i had my Iphone (around christmas) the Imap-thing was all new.. i dont see were im supposed to click imap in the settings.

    In your Gmail account you need to switch the IMAP settings to on. It's like, POP3 or IMAP or something. Just log into your Gmail account on your computer and then hit the settings button and then switch IMAP on. It should work now.
    Give credit where credit is due, press "thank you"
    When all else fails, put it into restore mode!!!
    Remember, Google is your best friend. And so is YouTube!!!

    I have already done that that was the first thing i did.. I have no options in the Touch to mark "imap-settings". do i have to have Http://

    or does just imap.gmail.com work? I dont understand this.. On my Iphone it was just like a breeze to add an account.
