How to add my Gmail email account?

    When I set up my phone, I must have entered my Gmail email address at some point, as my contacts and calendar sync. Also, when someone sends an email to my Gmail address, I receive it on the phone.

    Under email accounts, only my Virgin Media email account is listed. When I try and add my Gmail account, I enter in the email address and password and it comes up with "Authentication failed. Please check your username/password." I'm a bit confused now, because I receive email sent to my Gmail address, but it's not listed under email accounts and I can't reply from my Gmail address, only the Virgin Media one. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks.

    EDIT - Never mind! I just found the setting to enable IMAP on the Gmail site, and enabling that has fixed the problem. :)
