    Hello All,

    Is there a way to add my Gmail account to the default mail app (HTC One m8)? I keep getting authentication failed message.

    Hi wetnap, welcome to Android Forums.

    I have my gmail accounts set up in my stock mail app on my M7, and they work fine so I would've thought the same would apply to the M8. Did you set the account details manually or let it do it auto, I did it auto. What settings have you got? I can compare them to mine if you like.


    My settings are :-


    Protocol : IMAP

    IMAP server: imap.gmail.com

    Security: SSL

    Server port: 993


    Login required

    SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com

    Security: SSL

    Server port: 465

    Hope this helps.
