try adding a new account. and rather than tapping gmail, tap "other" and enter in your info. good luck.

how do you enable POP in the mail settings
Go to settings in the top right corner

Then go to forwarding and pop

Turn it on, in the POP section, choose: Enable POP only for mail that arrives from now on


or you will get a billion +++ emails
