    when i click on the little mail icon it brings me to a selection of mailing services,
    i then click on gmail and enter in all my account info, when i click "save" a popup screen comes up and says "cannot connect using SSL do you still want to try setting up the account without SSL?" i clicked yes and it wasnt able to set up the account, i then clicked "no" and tried to use the service anyway and it says "cannot get mail the connection to the server "imap.gmail.com" failed."

    what is goin on pls help

    Restart your phone. Try again.

    This has happened to me a few times and restarting the phone fixed it.

    It fixed it on the first restart. What email service are you using?
