The issue that originally caused the error "imap.gmail.com is not responding" on several accounts has now been resolved, so I'm closing this thread since it's extremely long and most of the recent posts aren't related to the original issue. If you still have an issue with your IMAP connection, please feel free to start a new post. It will help if you an also include the following information so the community can help you troubleshoot.

  1. If you've upgraded to iOS, try removing and then recreating the account and that's been doing the trick.

  2. Try logging into your account through the web and make sure nothing is wrong with your username, password or general access.

  3. Double check your IMAP settings (servers, ports, etc): http://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=75726&topic=1668961&ctx=topic

  4. Try removing and then recreating the account.

  5. Did you recently activity 2-step verification? If so, make sure you're entering the application specific password: http://support.google.com/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=185833

  6. A good rule of thumb is that if you're having an IMAP issue on only one device or with one email client, then it's most likely settings and not an issue with your account. If you're getting the same error across devices and email clients (Apple Mail, iOS, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc), then it might be something else. If you only use one device/email client, try a second to help narrow down if it's just the settings.

I keep getting message that my IMAP setting is incorrect. I don't even know what that is.Please help.


It depends on how you get your email, webmail through a browser like IE, Firefox, Chrome etc., or through an email client like Outlook, OE, Thunderbird, etc. And you might be connecting to gmail.com with an Android, iPhone, Kindle, etc. Whatever the case, you possibly need to change the settings to a POP3 server rather than IMAP. This page may help you set everything up correctly:

Magic Mail (in Magic Desktop) doesn't work with Gmail account. The message is "error adressed" My settings: imap@gmail.com smtp@gmail.com + autentication smtp port:465 pop3 port: 993


I downloaded and installed Magic Desktop and configured Magic Mail. It works with Gmail, but it seems to only support the POP3 server for Gmail. In other words, you must use pop.gmail.com, not imap.gmail.com. You also need to enable POP email in your Gmail settings.
Hope this helps, Eric

I want to know if there's a way / software to sync my Samsung SGH-i607 with my Gmail account.


Yes, the SGH-i607 can support an IMAP account, and Gmail can be accessed through IMAP. They don't list the SGH-i607 as a supported client, but it should be possible to configure it to work with Gmail.
First, go to your gmail account and enable IMAP:
Sign in to Gmail. Click the gear icon in the upper-right and select Gmail settings at the top of any Gmail page. Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP. Select Enable IMAP. Click Save Changes.
Next, configure the SGH-i607:
While in standby mode, press the left soft key for Start Select Messaging Select New Account (3) Select Other (POP3/IMAP), using the navigation keys Press the right soft key for Next Enter your name & E-mail address, using the Qwerty keypad Press the right soft key for Next For User Name, enter your full email address (including @gmail.com), using the Qwerty keypad . For Password, enter your Gmail password. For Domain, enter gmail.com. Press the right soft key for Next. For Server Type, choose IMAP. For Account Name, enter your full email address (including @gmail.com). Press the right soft key for Next. For Incoming Server, enter imap.gmail.com and select "Require SSL connection". For Outgoing Server, enter smtp.gmail.com and select "Outgoing server requires authentication". Press the right soft key for Next. Select desired message settings, using the navigation keys. Press the right soft key for Next. Select desired configurations for Storage and Connection. Press the right soft key for Next. After you have determined how often the device will connect, press the right soft key for Next. Setup will now be complete. Pressing the right soft key for Finish will enter the newly-created account in the Messaging application.

How to setup push mail for samsung monte phone on gmail


I'm not sure if this is of any help
to anyone but these are the steps
I used to set up email on my
Monte. I'm using an old hotmail
account that didn't support IMAP
or SMTP properly.
1.Set Up a GMail account eg.
someone@gmail.com
2.Set GMail to allow IMAP via the
settings link the the top right
hand corner. (under Forwarding
and POP/IMAP)
3.Under accounts and import set
up the send mail as to send mail as
someone@hotmail.co.uk. Set this
to default send adress
4.In the same tab under check
mail using pop3 set up the pop3 to
recieve from someone@
hotmail.co.uk
5.Under Email Accounts on the
Monte set up email with the
following charecteristics:
Account Name: Hotmail
SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
SMTP Port: 465
Secure Connection: SSL
Incoming Server Type: IMAP4
IMAP4 Server: imap.gmail.com
IMAP Port: 993
APOP login: greyed out
Secure Connection: SSL
Download Limit: 500
IMAP4 incoming email: New
Retrieving option: Whole Message
Keep on server: checked
My email adress: someone@
hotmail.co.uk (This is the adress
the phone puts in the from line of
an email)
Username: someone@gmail.com
Password: gmail password
Pop before smtp: greyed out
SMTP auth: checked
Same as POP3/IMAP4: checked
Username: greyed out
Passowrd: greyed out
This should allow you to recieve
new messages from the time you
set up the gmail account on your
phone and to send emails with all
the appearences of coming from
your hotmail account while
actually coming from google's
smtp server. Really do check that
the GMail is set up properly, make
sure it recieves emails adressed
to your hotmail and that it sends
in your hotmail account's name.

What iis the outgoing/incoming server for gmail?


Google GMail Settings
The Google GMail service offers email client access for retrieving and sending emails through your Gmail account. However, for security reasons, GMail uses POP3 over an SSL connection, so make sure your email client supports encrypted SSL connections.
    Google Gmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 995)
    Outgoing Mail Server - use the SMTP mail server address provided by your local ISP or smtp.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 465)

Email deleted on the server still remains in my iphone


That's strange. Except if you have the iPhone email settings set to POP instead of IMAP ...
Without knowing how much you have troubleshooted this already, I'll suggest making sure that IMAP is ENABLED on ALL your Gmail accounts and ALSO that IMAP is enabled on all your iPhone email accounts.
If IMAP is working properly you should stay in synch, no matter how you check or delete individual emails.
If you have IMAP enabled on one of the Gmail accounts, you can still access it via POP settings with the iPhone. If this is the setup, then when you delete an email on the server, it will not be synced when you check your mail on the iPhone, but instead you'll just retrieve any new mails that hadn't already been retrieved previously. However, if you delete a mail message on your iPhone in this scenario, it will not "return."
Good luck!

Setting up Email Acct with Iphone


well to the first person unfortunatly the bellsouth email system is not yet designed to work with the 3g network so you would have to turn that off to use bellsouth.

Also for all of you need to remember that both Yahoo and AOL email work with the IMAP stands for Internet Message Access Protocol. It is a method of accessing electronic mail or bulletin board messages that are kept on a (possibly shared) mail server. In other words, it permits a "client" email program to access remote message stores as if they were local. For example, email stored on an IMAP server can be manipulated from a desktop computer at home, a workstation at the office, and a notebook computer while traveling, without the need to transfer messages or files back and forth between these computers.

where as the bellsouth system is a POP system. what the means is that when you check your email client on either the computer or the phone it is actually pulling the mail from the bellsouth server to the respective devices and deleting the email unless you have both set to leave a copy on the bellsouth server.

and again the sending and recieving issues with bell south is due to the 3g network
