    My wife and I both cannot connect via the "Mail" application on our 3Gs today. Is anybody else getting the following error message while trying to access gmail? I can access it fine through Safari or any other web browser.

    "Cannot Get Mail
    The connection to the server "imap.gmail.com" failed."

    They may be updating the system, or you don't have SSL enabled.

    I can only imagine it's something to do with their servers. We've been getting mail just fine since launch day. IMAP is enabled.

    It came back online by 6pm for us. Must have been a Google thing.
