Hello,
You might have to login to your Gmail account and enable pop3. I am not sure
if it's allowed by default. You might also have to enable access for less
secure email clients.
To enable pop3 follow the instructions in the link below

to enable access for less secure email clients follow the instructions in

Hi Sami and Vejas,

I forgot to mention that in my email. If you are planning to set up your
Apex's built in email client with your account, which is probably a good
idea, you will of course need to change the server setting on the computer
first. If it's in Imap, that is, you'll want to switch it to pop. There is
an abundance of information for setting up the email client itself. You have
to go into either settings or options. I don't remember which is on the
Apex, but it will be in the email menu, which starts with "write an email".
I believe it's the last thing in that list. After pressing enter on options
or settings, whichever it is, you will eventually find something that says
"directory of email accounts". Pressing enter on this will lead you to some
more options, one of which will be "add an account". Press enter on this,
and then enter the relevant information. You do have to enter your email
address twice. There are a couple of specific entries for the pop and smtp
things. I don't remember what they are, as I have not used an Apex in that
capacity for over two years. You will have to enter two numbers as well. The
first one is 995 and the second one is 465.

I'm also not sure if Google has kicked pop servers out, since they are less
secure. I ran into this obstacle at one point, which is partially why I
changed devices. If this happens, contact Humanware. They can fix that in
updates, as they have done before. I hope this helps!

Best,
