i just created a gmail account and am trying to set it up through iPhone. i enter in my info, then it says "cannot connect using ssl. do you want to try setting up the account without ssl?" i choose yes, then it tries again and after a while it says "gmail account verification failed. the POP server "pop.gmail.com" is not responding. check your netwrok connection and that you entered the correct info in the "incoming mail server" field."

anyone else have this problem? or know what to do to help me? thanks! oh ya, what is ssl anyways?

Log into Gmail through Safari or on your desktop and make sure to Enable the POP in your mail settings. Have it send all mail "from now on" so that your inbox doesn't get filled with thousands of old emails.

If you've already done that above, just delete the settings and try again. It should work, it's normally a lot better than this.

Glad it helped, because I really don't know what else to have tried after that, lol.
