I'm trying to connect to my Gmail from Mail but it says cannot get mail imap.gmail.com

I cannot access any settings to change this from the app or the Settings app.

  • Can you edit the question to describe the steps you are taking to add the gmail account? It's likely that the problem is due to some configuration issue rather than the app itself. – Nimesh Neema Jul 18 '18 at 9:04
  • The account was there since 4 years ago on this iphone account – SuperUberDuper Jul 19 '18 at 10:53
  • Is it a standard Gmail account or a custom domain used with Google G-Suite? – Nimesh Neema Jul 19 '18 at 10:54

It looks like you have a typo in the server name.

Try changing it to imap.gmail.com. There's a guide to gmail's imap server settings here.

  • Post a a screenshot of Settings -> Accounts & Passwords on your original question and I'll take a look, thanks! – Scottmeup Jul 19 '18 at 10:56
