    Has anyone recently had any problems pushing their gmail to their 4s devices? I am set up via exchange and am not getting any emails pushed. I tried to switch from push to fetch. And I have tried manual mode but it still didnt work. I have messed with all the options and I am pretty sure they are set up correctly. I restarted my phone too. I am on 5.0.1. I was getting emails without any problems before today. I would prefer to have my mail pushed and not have to go to every time I want to check my mail. I also tried adding my account information from the exchange section to regular gmail but no luck. Help please.

    Email = my email
    Server =
    Domain =
    Username = my email again
    Password = my password
    Use SSL = on
    S/MIME = off

    I have had issues on my Macs, not on my phone, The server seems to drop the connection and I get an error message...It's a Gmail issue I think.

    I've been having this issue intermittently for both of my Gmail accounts (set up as Exchange) since installing iOS 5.1. That seems oddly coincidental, but it could just be a Google problem.

    Mine is working fine. Here's some things to check:

    First of all make sure you have Push set correctly:

    Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data > Push "On"

    Now still in Fetch New Data go Advanced > Gmail (or whatever you have called your Gmail account) > and under Select Schedule, select "Push".

    I have nothing entered into the Domain setting (rather than Not sure if this makes a difference, but as I said, mine works. ;)
