    I run an iPhone 4S and iPad2 - iOS 6.1.2. The iPhone has 2 gmail exchange accounts that work fine along side each other. I've been running a single exchange account on the iPad and an IMAP setup for the other account but decided I wanted to add push email and so added the same 2nd exchange account as on the iPhone but I get an error saying:

    "Cannot Get Mail, The connection to the server failed".

    On setup of the new exchange mail on the iPad I get all the ticks and I know the credentials are the same on both devices yet the iPad fails, the iPhone has been working a couple of weeks with no issues.

    Any suggestions?

    Gmail cut exchange support on iOS devices like a month ago. Any account that was set up prior to this will keep working in the devices it was set up on prior to that date for the time being but no new devices are being allowed even if the account is set up that way on something else.
