How to fix error “imap.google.com is not responding” ??

Imap.google.com Not responding Issue

We receive such type of errors while configuring gmail accounts in mobile phones like iPhone. Such errors can also occur while configuring in desktop machines though it occur in less frequency.

Possible reasons and solutions
–————————————

1) Make sure the application in which you are configuring mail account is up-to-date as outdated application can cause connection issues.

2) Make sure that the account details provided in the mail settings are correct. If not, try to remove the account and configure it once again to lessen the possibility of such error.

3) Google accept connection in secure port only and hence SSL setting should be enabled so that the network connection from the mobile phones are accepted by Google. So make sure to enable SSL setting for incoming mail server like IMAP to fix the issue.

4) Try setting the incoming mail server as imap.googlemail.com instead of imap.google.com if you are receiving the error “imap.google.com is not responding” at Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Gmail Account > IMAP Account.

5) Network Error: If there is a network limited at your end, the application will not be able to communicate with the correct servers.
