    I have tried to set the email settings as mentioned above several times but have failed to get connected to gmail. When I start connecting I get message “Messaging server not found” then after that “Check the settings.” Pleas help me out in getting my system connected to gmail.

    You might need to go to Incoming Mail settings and Outgoing Mail settings and type in your password and then try to connect. That should work. I had the same issue.

    Thanks…. I got my email configured but I can only see around 400 emails, when actually there are more than 2000 in my gmail account. I have selected the ‘All’ option in the Email settings.

    Any help would be highly appreciated.
