Hello all

Newbie here -

I'm having a few probs getting my handset to get gmail pushed to it. I own an i-mate JasJar currently running on a Vodafone tarrif in the UK. My Gmail is set-up via POP3:

(1/4): Email Address, ""
(2/4): Name = "my name", Username = "", Password = "*******", Save Password ticked
(3/4): Account type = "POP3", Name = "Gmail"
(4/4): Incoming mail = "", outgoing mail = "", Domain = "" (blank)

I find that if I manually send/recieve, I SOMETIMES get the email sent to me on my handset. The status bar on my phone says: connecting.... logging on.... sending/recieving.... reading header 1/1.... and then...... NOTHING!

Could this be because I also have GMAIL going to its own account via POP in Outlook on my desktop?

I should ention that I also have two other POP accounts going to my phone  - both having similar problems.

Currently, I have my phone looking up email (or at least, attempting to) every 5 mins.


Million points and a Cadbury's Creme Egg to anyon ewho can shed some light on this prob!

You have to check the GMAIL POP configuration and also the Outlook configuration. Outlook by default will delete messages from the server. Also on GMAIL you can configure to have the message Archived after being access by POP - so check this.

Thanks Mauricio

I've enabled POP in my GMAIL settings and have changed my Outlook Settings on my desktop to keep a copy of the emails on the server once downloaded.

Still no joy....!

Any other suggestions?
