    Are you setting it up via the GMAIL button on your touch?

    Also what you need to do is login to your gmail account on a computer, hit settings, then click Forwarding and POP/IMAP, then DISABLE POP and ENABLE IMAP.

    No no, you need to enable IMAP.

    Above the words "Enable POP for all mail
    Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on" does it say
    1. Status: POP is disabled?






    IMAP should look like this


    1. Status: IMAP is enabled
    Enable IMAP
    Disable IMAP

    Well my Gmail in the mail.app was working ok until I JB 1.1.3 and now it does not update even though it says it is.

    The mails stays the same and the updated date and time remains at 28/02/2008 13:18

    I am going to move to 1.1.4 tonight and JB with ziPhone now that it works and hopefully the mail.app will work then.

    I had the same identical problem for several days. I verified all my information and it drove me nuts. Then, without any change, the next day I tried it once more and - it accepted the information and I was on. The whole process took 3 or 4 days.

    No reason why it didn't work before, but now I'm on.

    ok try this



    ok I am guessing one of two thing your checking your mail through the website or MAIL.app...

    ok if your checking on website that ok but not going to help you.


    Do not plug you iPod in yet

    in fact manuel Del all mail and any other set that you set, put them back to what you think are the default. I ask you to do this just to make sure everything works with no add side problem :)

    for the best way I have found it to work is using MAIL.app with Gmail IMAP account

    If and if you need steps of setting up MAIL.app go here < http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=77663&topic=12920 >

    ok now you should have your IMAP turn on and POP turn off. for this to work in more then one place. and trust me you do not pop3 only on your Touch. Believe when I say this. I personaly love my Touch. but I still used my MAIL.APP b/c you can store save email email on to your macBook.

    now you have your email running on you MACbook. your say get it on my touch...


    ok here where it get simple. open iTunes if it not, Now iTune is going to pick up your Touch. now go over to the info tab on the Ipod Touch, setting in iTunes. then scroll down and click the option for adding your email to the touch..

    this works for me.


    I hope this help you out.

    the big GMAIL button will give you pop3 access so that has to be enabled..
    or if you need imap syncing then enter settings into iPhone mail manually by selecting 'other'
