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.



Google Error Message

Hey all,

Apparently this happens a lot (do a search) but it’s the first time it’s happened to me. I was happily browsing through my Google Reader, and all of a sudden I get an error message that reads:

“your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application…”

Tried refershing the page, no good. Shut down and restarted my browser, nada. Finally I did a search (the rest of Google worked find, I just couldn’t access reader.)

Based on MANY previous posts, I gleaned the following fix: just delete your cookies, and everything goes back to normal.

1. At the top of your browser, click “Tool”

2. Choose “Internet Options”

3. On the “General Tab” under the “Browsing History” heading, click on “Delete”

4.  In the new window, click on “Delete Cookies”

I did this for my “Avant Browser Options” (also under Tools) and when I refershed the Google Reader page, everything was fine.

Good Luck!
