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: [email protected]


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?

  • If it's Google Apps Gmail you shouldn't need to do anything special with the Gmail app. Add the account [email protected] and give it your password. My company has a Google Apps setup and it works just fine for me.

  • Do you by any chance use two factor authentication?

For the incoming username, you need to use your complete email address ("[email protected]"), not just the account username ("myName").

  • Not working, the same err.

  • 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.

You need to enable IMAP on your account.

See Google Help Page here: http://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=77695

  • ...this is enabled and I still get the errs.
