[Q] Why Wont School e/gmail sync?
I have been trying to sync my school e mail, powered by g mail for quite some time, since I got the phone 2 months ago, actually. At first I (and hope i still am) thought i was simply doing something wrong.
Now, the e mail is "powered by Google" not actually a Google address, but it looks identical to my normal e mail which is indeed through Google.
It is as follows:
I tried troubleshooting it via Settings>Forwarding and POP/IMAP on the g mail page on my PC.
I turned ON both POP Download and IMAP Access, then i realized there is no support for Android via POP (according to their list
of supported devices), so progressed to the IMAP settings, where, indeed, Android is supported here
I set everything up in my phone according to their instructions here
. At any rate, I cannot seem to get it to work, i get an error that reads "Authentification failed. Please verify your username/passord."
It gets hung up right after I type all this jargon in
" Incoming settings
IMAP server: imap.gmail.com
Security type: SSL (always)"
I have verified it countless times... am I unable to get this set up because it is an odd e mail address?
Note, If i change the IMAP server to imap.oaklandcc.edu it says it cannot verify, but it does not say the password/username is erroneous
