Want to set up gmail in "Mail Applicaton"

I had gmail set up as an additional account in Apple mail but somehow it will not work now. I get the following message.
"Connection Failed
There may be a problem with the mail server or network. Check the settings for account "Gmail" or try again.
The server error encountered was: The server "mail.example.com>" cannot be contacted on port 110."
Can anybody tell me what I doing wrong, Thanks

Found the info I needed at the following website.

  • I can't send emails via mail. I can receive but not send. I have set up gmail on mail. Any ideas?

    I can't send emails via mail. I can receive but not send. I have set up gmail on mail. Any ideas? No problems with the set up previously to this.

    Go to Mail Preferences- Accounts and confirm you are providing Gmail what they require to send and receive mail. And DON'T specify Secure Socket Layer. Some mail accts don't like SSL
    Good Luck to you.

    The only way to do so is with an IMAP account via server stored mailboxes which must be created with an email client used on your computer or via webmail access for the account using a browser. Once an additional server stored mailbox is created and available on the server, it will also be available on the iPhone automatically.
    This is not available with a POP account.

  • Can't set up Gmail in Mail 3.5

    Hi,
    I cannot set up either POP nor IMAP. I get the error message: Trying to log on to IMAP (or POP) failed. But my user and password are correct.
    Interestingly, I didn't receive a testmail from googlemail to my old mail address either. What is wrong?
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Hello,
    I just got a Mac for a first time and I'm trying to configure Mail 3.5 with my gmail account and even after having followed all the steps seen on this forum, I just can't do it. The messages that come up are:
    "The IMAP server "imap.gmail.com" 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 receive messages"
    AND
    "The SMTP server "smtp.gmail.com" 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 send messages"
    it might be very basic but I can't manage. Can anyone help??
    Thanks in advance!!

  • 1000s email from Gmail to Mail

    I want to use my Gmail through Mail, but I have 7000 emails stored in Gmail. All these start to download when I set up a new account. Any way to avoid this??
    Thank you!

    Just setup your Gmail account with one piece of information that is incorrect (or bypass the setup "wizard" and setup the account manually), then correct that invalid information and set the "Check for new mail:" time to "Never". But when you do check for new mail, those 7000 emails will download. The only way to avoid that entirely is to delete them on Gmail before you setup that account.

  • Setting up POP e-mail on a Muse site hosted on Business Catalyst

    Hi, I've recently taken a Muse site 'live' using one of the 5 'credits' I got with the Creative Cloud Subscription.  This, I understand, means that the site is hosted on WebBasics+ service, which includes hosted e-mail.
    The domain name has been registered with 1-2-3, redirected to the BC servers.  This is working fine.  Now I want to set up a POP mail account for the domian.
    But there's no e-mail options showing on the BC site management for the domain. 
    How do I go about getting e-mail with this domain on the BC 'system'.
    Any help greatfully appreciated.
    RP

    Thanks for the reply.  Have to be honest, I find Adobe a little unclear. 
    When I first came across editorial mentioning 5 free sites, I assumed it would be the 'entry level' service:  WebBasics+, as shown on the main pricing web page.
    Now you're saying, the 'CC credits' only give me access to the 'Webhosting' service.  This service isn't shown on the Pricing web page, so I took it that WebBasics+ was the ebtry level.
    Now that I go back to the pricing page, I see there is a link (a small one) to the Detailed Pricing breakdown.  Which does show Webbasics.  I wish I'd seen that before. 
    I feel a right chump!
    Thanks for your reply, though.
