    Trying to sync Gmail and Mac Mail...

    Step 1. Enabled IMAP in my Gmail settings
    Step 2. Went through this process to add a Gmail account in Mac Mail...

    Link to Googles instructions

    "Error: The IMAP server is not responding. Try checking the network connection, and that the server name is correct. Otherwise, the server might be temporarily unavailable. If you continue, you might not be able to recieve messages."

    I have an active internet connection. I am at work with my own personal laptop, would something on our network be blocking this?

    Disregard this post...

    I figured it out. I took my macbook home and set it up over my network with no problems. The network server at my employer was blocking access.
