    I have an Iphone v 1.1.1 , and i would like to set up my gmail account into it.
    that's why i have followed all the google instructions BUT at this end nothing happened because my iphone said: "the connection to the outgoing server " smtp.gmail.com failed"
    Anybody can help me???

    Go to your Gmail in Settings and click IMAP enabled...

    Did you just get the phone? I had the exact same problem and it resolved itself in a couple days after activation.

    Correct. Give it a few days, restart your phone and computer, and try it again

    Mine did not work at first but eventually did after a 2nd try

    If you have IMAP working with Mail.app on your computer (if you use OS X), just sync the phone with the replace settings on iphone checked under mail
