Firm Gmail, i.e. Google Apps -email, with K9 -email program?

I have this kind of firm url, https://www.google.com/a/cpanel/firm.com. I want to have an IMAP -email account on Android. How can I do it?

I am using the app "My email" by which things do not work. If I use the native Gmail -app, things work out of the box. As for the "My email" -software (that gathers all emails, not just Gmails, under one mailbox), I selected

Email: myName@firm.com


Username: myName
Imap Server: imap.gmail.com
Port: 993
Security SSL


SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com
Port: 465
Security: SSL
Require sign-in: yes
Use the same settings as the incoming server: yes

Pressing Next fires "Username or password incorrect" with "s@gmail@firmA@g" while "Unable to open connection to server" with the latter. So how can set up the Google Apps Gmail on Android?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

If it's Google Apps Gmail you shouldn't need to do anything special with the Gmail app. Add the account MyName@firm.com and give it your password. My company has a Google Apps setup and it works just fine for me. –  Al E. Aug 11 '12 at 2:06
Do you by any chance use two factor authentication? –  Richard Borcsik Aug 11 '12 at 20:17
[UPDATE] This solution should work here, haven't tested but I am pretty sure. I flagged for Closing due to duplicate. –  hhh Oct 5 '12 at 12:09

For the incoming username, you need to use your complete email address ("myName@firm.com"), not just the account username ("myName").

Not working, the same err. –  hhh Aug 11 '12 at 18:59
Then one of the following should be true: you're entering some of the information incorrectly, the app you're using is broken, or Google has locked your account for too many failed login attempts. –  Logos Aug 12 '12 at 13:06

You need to enable IMAP on your account.
