    So I got things to work on my iPhone but not my friends iPhone for the mail. We are setting up gmail through others so we are using imap. So I don't understand what's going on with his but works great on mine. Here's what it says on his when I do the exact same thing on mine but mine works;

    Cannot Connect Using SSL
    and then below it;
    Do you want to try setting up the account without SSL and we have tried both yes and no. Also I do have imap enabled on his settings in gmail. So I'm not exactly sure what's going on. So we also have saved the email anyways and it doesn't work there. Like we get "Cannot Get Mail" The connection to the server "imap.gmail.com" failed. So any ideas would be great thanks.

    Have you set SSL to the correct port, as GMail doesn't use the standard SSL ports.

    He has the same ports on the settings as I do and it works for me.
