    What is your iPhone firmware version ?

    Have you tried to connect with a mail client from a computer with the same settings ?
    Does it work ?

    So you don't have a problem with your phone, but with your internet connection.

    Why don't you use the Gmail settings rather than Other/imap ?

    I ran into a few problems when setting up IMAP Gmail a few weeks ago. I am on a Mac and tried it the other way round. Set up the IMAP Gmail account on the Mac with Apples Mail and make sure it works. Then synchronize Mac and iPhone through iTunes with activated "Synchronize Mail-Accounts" in tab "Info" (dont know the english terms, I am running a non english Mac-OS here).

    After sync the iPhone gets all the correct settings for IMAP-Gmail from the Mac and works like a charm.

    There is some finetuning beeing done when you set up the account between the IMAP server and your client (Mail on the Mac) concerning encrypted connections and the ports to be used for that.

    One tipp aside from the question: IMAP option in Googlemail is still not visible but available if you run the Web interface of Gmail in other languages than english. Solution: In settings (in your Webbrowser, logged into Googlemail) switch to language "English US" and save the new setting (scroll all the way down). IMAP-Option is accessible then, select it and save again. After that you may switch back to the language of your choice.


    Hope that helps

    There is a good change that the WLAN connection you are using does not allow encrypted [read: ssl] connections.

    There are plenty of those around, sometimes done by bad people who want your passwords, sometimes simply because the provider has other reasons not to allow it.

    Try to connect via another WLAN AP and see how that goes.

    Good luck,
    mokum
