I had a problem with setting up Google Mail (Gmail account) in my iPhone, it works in few days then stop working. It works again then stop working all the time. And I get the error message: Cannot Get Mail. The mail server ‘imap.gmail.com’ is not responding. Verify that you have entered the correct account info in Mail settings.
It’s so crazy because I don’t change anything include Google email account and the configuration settings. I even tried to delete my current Gmail account then create again and again but the issue is still there.
Luckily, I looked iPhone’s my friend and I recognized that he’s using Microsoft Exchange option instead Google Mail in (Settings => Mail, Contacts, Calendars => Add Account …). I’ve followed the instructions to create my Gmail account and it WORKED and completely solved the Cannot Get Mail to imap.gmail.com mail server issue.
