The mail server imap.gmail.com is not responding

Ran into this issue on my iPad2 this morning. This fix worked quite nicely…

1. Close the mail app on your ipad

2. Go your Mail Settings on from Google’s web mail client (It’s under the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab) and make sure IMAP is enabled. If it’s not, enable and save. If it is, disable, save, re-enable, and save again.

3. Relaunch you mail app. This worked for me.

If it doesn’t work, the next step is deleting the account on you iPad, and adding it again.

Here’s the thread on iPad Forums.

  4. I’ve tried everything on this discussion thread and finally found something that worked!!!

    I was able to set up my google email account as an exchange account. Here’s a link that explains the steps to do this: http://www.simonblog.com/2011/03/07/why-gmail-using-microsoft-exchange-is-better-on-your-iphoneipad/
