Thanks for this ! I'm having the exact same issue.I'm having the same problem setting up GMail using their exchange server on my iphone 6. It doesn't appear to be a bug in iOS 8 as my iphone 5 can still access the exchange server properly. Although, my iphone 5 was previously set up and I haven't readded the account in iOS 8, so the bug might just be with first time setup.
What is happening is that I am adding the exchange account, putting in Google's server information: m.google.com and my username and password. It verifies they are all correct, and puts check marks beside everything. However, then it doesn't appear to download any of the mailbox information. There are 0 e-mails found and it doesn't detect the folders. So, it doesn't show the deleted items, sent items, etc.
If I set the same mailbox up as a gmail account, it works normally but with no push notifications.
The one other odd thing I've noticed while setting it up as an Exchange server is that when I go into the settings for the Exchange account, where it says "Automatic Reply" at the bottom, it just says "Loading..."
Also, if I go into Fetch New Data and select the Exchange server in the list, it is set to push, however at the bottom where it lists "Pushed Mailbooxes" it only lists Inbox and I can't put a check mark beside it. When I do the same thing on my iPhone 5, it shows Inbox, Sent, Trash, All Mail, Spam, Starred, Notes, Personal, Receipts, Travel, Work.
There's definitely weird going on in terms of using Gmail's Exchange server(and I assume other Exchange servers as well) using the iPhone 6.
While this is true, this isn't necessarily the issue being experienced here. I have a Google Apps account and am experiencing the exact same issue as everyone else in this thread. It is driving me nuts I can't get my work email account on my shiny new iPhone 6. What is odd is that I didn't have this problem in the iOS 8 beta versions.All, Google stopped supporting new devices sometime last year for free users. See link:
Paid Google Apps accounts are supposed to work set up as Exchange. Some people in this thread do not fall into that category.While this is true, this isn't necessarily the issue being experienced here.

This worked for me also. Specifically, I deleted network settings. After reboot and a few minutes, emails and calendar started populating. Added my wifi back and it continues to work.I have an Corporate (non-gmail) exchange server..
This is Odd... but reseting my phone and turning off Wifi (IE using LTE) only worked, not all of my exchange mails, folders, contacts, Notes ETC are downloading..
Not yet sure why using Wifi doesn't work, and not yet sure what happens when i turn Wifi back on.
But, Exchange is working with ONLY LTE turned on.
I don't have an iPhone 6, but I see that when I load iCloud backup to my iPhone 5, the exchange does work on IOS 8. However, when I set it up as a new phone, it doesn't.I had no problems with the corporate exchange server with the iOS8 upgrade on Wednesday but can not validate the account with my iphone 6 (Friday). This is important to work emails and calendar.
Any suggestions are welcome.
Brian. Thanks for the info. I've set up a corporate account with Google, but don't know how to set up as Exchange. Any help is much appreciated.Paid Google Apps accounts are supposed to work set up as Exchange. Some people in this thread do not fall into that category.
If there's an issue in iOS 8 or on the iPhone 6 with setting up paid Google Apps accounts as Exchange there's not much info out there on it as yet...but it looks like something is amiss.
This has worked for many:Anyone else having trouble getting their Exchange accounts up and running after restoring their phone to an iPhone 6+?
